Chicken can be prepared in so many ways I actually realized I overlooked one, and one that is super simple, and that would be by using a crock pot. They are nice in that once you have your ingredients all gathered together and put in there you can walk away and not have to fuss with it for hours. It is also nice in that it emits such a lovely smell throughout your home that is sure to bring a smile or two.
This way you get to enjoy healthy chicken without spending all that time chopping and measuring and stirring and trying to make every part of the meal come out at the same time. Using a crock pot could almost be as simple as driving through your nearest fast food restaurant. However, with fast food you will be getting a lot of things your body does not want or maybe I should say does not need.
I like to find recipes that do not take a lot of time and effort and fall under the “easy to make” category. I am not one who enjoys even the thought of slaving over the hot stove for hours on end-are you? If not you will like this very easy recipe for barbeque chicken done almost effortlessly in a crock pot.
- One or two boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- One 18 ounce jar of your favorite barbeque sauce
- One medium sized onion-sliced
- Six (or more) hamburger buns
- Deli coleslaw
- Deli baked beans
Cut and remove any excess fat from the chicken (if there is any).
Cut the chicken into bite-sized strips and place in crockpot.
Lay the onion slices on top of the chicken.
Pour the barbeque sauce on top-just enough to cover the chicken or more if you so desire.
Cook for eight hours on low (it could be less time depending on when the chicken is nice and tender.)
Be sure there is no pink in the middle of any of the chicken strips. Cooking them in barbeque sauce may make it a bit difficult to determine if the pink came from the sauce or not.
Shred the chicken with a fork and knife and scoop onto hamburger buns.
You can warm up the hamburger buns using your microwave for about 15 seconds or so. You could also use your stove but if it is a hot summer day I can only guess the microwave would be preferred.
