I’m always looking for easy slow cooker recipes that my whole family will enjoy and this Easy Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken definitely fits the bill. 

Easy Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken

Yes, I’ve gone the super easy route and dumped a bottle of barbecue sauce into the slow cooker with some chicken. Sometimes life just calls for that sort of thing.

As a mom to three busy boys, I’m all for dumping dinner in the slow cooker in the morning and calling it good.

But it really doesn’t take much more effort to add the few extra ingredients that make this chicken extra special. And that little bit of extra effort makes a big difference! 

We typically serve this on sandwich buns topped off with coleslaw, but it’s also great over rice. If you have leftovers, this chicken is great in wraps and salads.

And if you plan ahead, you can double the recipe and freeze enough for another meal.
