One of the most popular blog posts I have ever had was my recipe for Crock Pot Teriyaki Chicken. I am still counting, but at last count it had received 20,000 hits on Pinterest and has garnered 66 comments on my post. That tells me that there are many people out there who love their crock pots and enjoy recipes that require very little work.
This recipe for barbecued chicken falls into that category. Ironically I found it on Pinterest, but changed it somewhat to suit my taste. I had a package of three large chicken breasts in the freezer. I put them in my crock pot frozen, mixed up the sauce ingredients and cooked them on low for 6 hours. We liked them but the flavor seemed a little intense to me.
One of the good things about the crock pot is that it turns any meat into a shreddable consistency. By adding a little water or chicken broth to the shredded chicken I was able to achieve a most delicious BBQ chicken to serve on hamburger buns. We enjoyed them for lunch several times.
I will be making this again in my crock pot.
CROCK POT BBQ CHICKEN
3 large chicken breasts (can be frozen)
1 bottle of your favorite barbecue sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon cardamom
1 tablespoon grainy mustard
Place chicken breasts in crock pot. Mix together the sauce ingredients. Pour over chicken. Cook on low 4 to 6 hours, checking occasionally for doneness. Remove chicken and shred. If sauce is too thick add a little water or chicken broth to it. Return chicken to sauce. Spoon onto warmed hamburger buns and serve.
