Crockpot Barbecue Chicken Sandwich #recipe @LucyBurdette

LUCY BURDETTE: Every once in a while I go on a Pinterest binge, often looking for new crockpot recipes. This latest was based on a post from Natasha's kitchen

Here was the problem: We were having guests for dinner but I was also packing for a trip. So I needed to cook up something easy but delicious. And I happen to have a jar of my favorite barbecue sauce on hand, called Bone Suckin' Sauce. It's ever so tasty, with no weird, unnatural ingredients, and lower in sodium than most jarred sauces. I also added a whole sliced onion and a sliced green pepper, since the garden was full of them. You can add or delete those as you see fit.

1.5 pounds chicken (I used boneless skinless thighs)
Three-quarter cup barbecue sauce
1.5 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon brown sugar
One small onion, sliced
One green pepper, seeded and sliced

Buns and coleslaw for serving

Since it's so easy to sauté things in my crockpot, I put a little olive oil in the bottom and browned the thighs. While that was happening, I sliced the onion and pepper.

When the thighs are turning brown, layer the vegetables over the chicken. Mix the Worcestershire and brown sugar into the barbecue sauce and pour that over the top. 

Move the crockpot to the lowest setting and simmer for six hours. Serve on buns with coleslaw. 

That's it! Enjoy your dinner and enjoy your guests!

  1. Yummy, thank you. Starting to read my great cozy mystery kitchens again.

  2. I know that sauce. It's a good one. I, too, tweak it with additions according to my mood.
    Looks like a tasty solution to your dinner guest situation. Well done!

  3. What a great idea! I am a fan of slow cookers and easy entertaining too. Hugs.

  4. Yum! We had crock pot chicken tonight. Ours was more in the style of a pot roast with carrots and potatoes. This sounds like a tasty idea for next time. Thanks.

  5. This looks delicious. I love to cook, but I need to use my crock pot more. I love your food critic Key West mysteries!

  6. Always looking for make ahead meals for my daughter who is gone almost 12 hours a day between work and commuting time. Thank you for recipe. Cynthia.

  7. Oh, I have to look into the Bone Suckin' sauce, it sounds amazing. Going to make this for dinner this weekend, it looks yummy.
