Easy Slow Cooker Root Beer BBQ Chicken

Spray cooker with nonstick cooking spray.

Place chicken in slow cooker in a single layer, lightly season with salt and pepper. Pour root beer and barbecue sauce over top, making sure to coat chicken evenly. Cook on high for 3 to 4 hours. Be sure to adjust cooking time according to how fast/slow your cooker cooks. When ready, shred chicken using two forks, cover and cook on warm or low for an additional 20 minutes. 

Serve piled high on your favorite bun/roll or over rice.
