Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken

I love shredded meats like chicken and beef. I love them even more when they are slathered in BBQ sauce. This is probably one of the easiest BBQ Chicken Sandwiches and it made SO MUCH FOOD so it’s good for a crowd, or you can easily portion it out and freeze it. 

Recipe from

3.5 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast

2 cups BBQ sauce (I use Sweet Baby Ray’s) 

1/4 cup light or dark brown sugar packed 

2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar 

1 Tablespoon olive oil 

1 teaspoon garlic powder 

½ teaspoon onion powder 

½ teaspoon smoked paprika 

¼-½ teaspoon crushed red pepper 

1. Combine BBQ sauce, brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, olive oil, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, and crushed red pepper in the basin of a slow cooker

2. Place chicken breast in sauce and use a spoon to cover with sauce.

3. Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours or high 3-4 hours. Chicken is done when it is easily shredded with a pair of forks.

4. Shred chicken and stir well to coat with BBQ sauce. 

I served mine as sandwiches, but you can use this for so many things like pastas, quesadillas, rice bowls, pizza, etc…
