Slow Cooker Zesty Barbecue Chicken

Ingredients

  • 2 to 2 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts (fresh)
  • 1 cup onion, chopped (optional, but highly recommend)
  • 1 cup Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce
  • 1/2 cup Kraft Zesty Italian Dressing
  • 2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar

Directions

Lightly spray slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray.


Place chicken in single layer in slow cooker. Top chicken with diced onion (optional). Mix remaining ingredients (bbq sauce, Italian dressing, Worcestershire sauce and brown sugar). Pour sauce over chicken.


Cook on high for 3 to 4 hours, until chicken is tender and easy to shred.  When ready, shred with two forks. Reduce slow cooker temperature to low and cook an additional hour. Cooking the extra hour allows the yummy sauce to absorb into the chicken. 


Serve chicken pilled high on your favorite rolls along with your favorite barbecue sides - coleslaw, potato salad, baked beans, baked potatoes, french fries, veggies, salad and more. Enjoy!


Tips

Use leftover chicken to make BBQ pizza, serve on top of rice, baked potatoes or salad.  Also makes an awesome wrap.
