Throw and Go BBQ Chicken

Don't you just love crock pots?  The house smells good all day.  You look and smell like an awesome wife.  Yet-all you did was throw some junk in a pot and push start.  I love it!  This is a really yummy recipe.  I was a little worried that there wasn't more liquid in the pot, but it all worked out-don't worry!  I actually halved the recipe and it made 6 sandwiches for us.  Don't forget the money maker--throw a dill pickle on there (lesson learned from Claire, thank you!)

Throw and Go BBQ Chicken
Recipe from
  • 5 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion flakes
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup spaghetti sauce
  • 1/2 cup Kansas City Style bbq sauce (I used Cattlemen’s Kansas City Classic)
  • 1 Tbsp. liquid smoke
  • rolls or buns to serve on
  • butter
  1. Place all the ingredients in the crock pot in the order listed above.
  2. Cook in the crock pot on high for at least 6 hours.  Remove the chicken and shred.  Return to the crock pot and mix into the sauce.
  3. Butter the inside of your buns or rolls.  Place them on a cookie sheet.  Broil them in the oven on the second highest level for the oven rack (this prevents burning).  Broil until golden brown.  You want them toasty because this bbq chicken is so moist and saucy you will end up with soggy bread if you don’t toast them.  Sandwich bbq chicken inside toasted buns or rolls.
