Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue


I feel like I haven't blogged in ages! Don't think I have ever gone this long without a post but it's the summer and sometimes life just gets in the way! I'm having a great summer and have not been home much at all. Right now I am down in Richmond again and this time brought my laptop with me so I could post a recipe. I found this the other day on Allrecipes. My husband made this the the other night and it was great. I'm not a big fan of BBQ but I'll eat this anytime! I wanted to give this a try since it's cooked in a slow cooker which is so nice to use in the summer and doesn't heat up the entire house. We had this on hamburger buns with potato salad and corn on the cob. So simple to make too. Just a great recipe for this time of year. We also hade my granddaughers 1st birthday party last week and I'll be posting some pics of that soon.

6 frozen skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

1 (12 ounce) bottle barbeque sauce

1/2 cup Italian salad dressing

1/4 cup brown sugar

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

Place chicken in slow cooker. In a bowl, mix the barbeque sauce, Italian salad dressing, brown sugar and Worcestershire sauce. Pour over chicken.

Cover, cook 3 or 4 hours on high or 5 to 6 hours on low.
NOTE: The key to keeping this moist is to keep some of the sauce on the side to pour over the chicken after you have cooked and shredded it. This makes is very flavorful and moist. Don't skip this step!

Enjoy!

This looks delicious, Debbie! I love the addition of the Italian dressing; I bet that makes the chicken nice and tangy. I can't believe your granddaughter is 1 already!

Slow cookers are so great to use during the summer. No turning on the oven and it leaves you lots of time to go play!

I should use my slow cooker more often especially in this kind of warm summer heat. This dish will be great for our weekend get together.
