Barbeque Chicken in the Snow

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

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.

when you can't cook outside on the grill

 

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.

Ingredients

  • 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

using cooking spray instead of liners

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!

    Yummy! I just love all the creative crock pot ideas you come up with! #productreviewparty

    1. Thank you, just wait until you see what I have cooking today for Valentine’s Day dinner!

  3. I usually just bake my chicken. I’m not much of a cook. But that looks so easy and tasty. I’m going to share this with my husband so maybe he can make it for me 😀 #ProductReviewParty

    1. That’s the joy of a Crock Pot – you don’t have to be a cook. Let me know if hubby makes it for you.

  4. Why have I not thought to use cooking spray on the crock pot??? But I also just started using mine after having it for years…LOL! I’m def going to make this one day but with breasts since hubby is all about white meat. Looks so good! http://fortheloveto.com/2016/01/without-content-without-words.html

    1. Yes, I only use spray and not those plastic liners – cancer causing carcinogens. I like breasts as well but saw these and wanted to try them. Hope you are having a wonderful day.

  5. This looks Delicious! I need to actually take my crock pot out of the storage room and use it. LoL Thanks for sharing!

    1. Yes KaSonndra you need to pull it out with a quickness because it will make your life easier, cooking in a crock pot is great.

  6. The whole family loves bbq chicken. I cook mine in the oven.

    1. Yes, in the oven is good too but it’s so much better outside on the grill – hurry up summer!!!

I love reading your comments!
