We love Barbeque Chicken especially when it’s cooked outdoors on the grill, but when the weather is not conducive to firing up the backyard grill the Crock Pot is the next best thing.
Cooking in a Crock Pot is not only quick and easy, it is also very convenient especially when you are snowed in as we were last weekend. Chicken is by far my favorite meat to cook in a slow cooker simply because we do not eat a lot of red meat. I always tease my family, telling them that we eat so much chicken and turkey that I’m surprised that we haven’t sprouted feathers!
This 4 ingredient Crock Pot meal is not only one of my favorites but is also a standby because the ingredients are always in the freezer and pantry. Stopping at Shoprite a few hours before the forecasted #2016Blizzard I picked up these All Natural Pre-Cut Diced Chicken Thighs and decided to give them a try.
Added to the Crock Pot with 4 cups of frozen onions and peppers, a bottle of BBQ Sauce and a little seasoning made for a perfect Sunday meal which was served over Organic Brown Rice with a side of sautéed Kale.
- 2 lbs diced skinless chicken thighs, breasts or tenderloins
- 4 cups of frozen mixed onions and peppers
- 1/2 tsp seasoning, I chose Sylvia’s Secret Seasoning
- 18 oz bottle of Barbecue Sauce
- Cooking Spray to coat inside of Crock Pot
Make sure to coat the inside of the Crock Pot with Cooking Spray to keep the sauce from sticking. You can if you prefer, use a Crock Pot liner but personally I don’t like cooking food inside of plastics.
Add diced chicken, top with seasoning and frozen onions and peppers. Pour in entire bottle of Barbecue Sauce then add a little water to the empty bottle, shake and pour over chicken, seasoning and veggies. Adding a bit of water will provide more liquid and you won’t waste the remaining sauce that sticks to the inside of the bottle.
Cover and set Crock Pot to low and cook for 4 hours or on high to cook 2 hours.
Stir before serving over rice then enjoy!
If you can’t grill it, like our friends here did, slow cook it!
