Easy Crockpot BBQ Chicken

I wanted to share with you one of my favorite go-to crock pot meals. Shredded BBQ chicken.

It is so easy to throw in the crockpot. It literally takes just a few minutes and only 4 ingredients! Then you can go on about your day and enjoy the aroma of BBQ cooking. I make this a lot. We put it on sandwiches and add pickles or coleslaw but you could eat it multiple ways. It’s great to make if you have to serve a big crowd too. I made this for my whole extended family. We put it on sandwiches and put some fries and a cold pasta salad on the side and everyone raved about it.

First things first. You need a crockpot. I have this one. I luuurve it.


-2 lbs of boneless , skinless chicken breasts or tenderloins

-1 cup BBQ sauce. (I use Sweet baby Rays)

-1/4 cup Italian dressing (I LOVE the Olive Garden brand)

-1 tbsp of Worcestershire sauceĀ 

**optional -1/4 cup brown sugar. (I never add this and honestly think the BBQ sauce is sweet enough)


1//Put your chicken in the crock pot. Don’t forget your liner!

2//In a bowl mix the BBQ sauce, Italian dressing and Worcestershire sauce and brown sugar if you’re adding that.

3//Pour the mixture over the chicken, cover and turn Crockpot to HIGH for 3-4 hours or LOW for 5-6 hours.

4// Once the time is up, shred with 2 forks. It falls apart easily. Shredding it soaks up some of the extra sauce.

Voila! You have delicious BBQ chicken without even going outdoors.
