I love my crockpots. Yes, I said crockpots...as in plural. I have four and, yes, I do need each one.
It's a wonderful thing to fill it with ingredients, turn it on and several hours later, you have a delicious meal that's waiting to be eaten. It's like magic, really.
Today's recipe comes from an adapted Pinterest find. It's super simple and quite delicious. My kids loved that the chicken was so tender that they could cut their own chicken with their forks.
Here's what you'll need:
4-6 chicken breasts (I used 4 and cut each one in half to get 8 pieces)
1 (18 oz.) bottle BBQ sauce
1/4 C. white vinegar
1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes (optional, it's if you like some kick)
1/4 C. brown sugar
1 tsp. garlic powder
Place the chicken breasts in the crockpot. Season with whatever seasonings you like. I went with Sweet Mesquite seasoning.
In a small bowl, combine the BBQ sauce, vinegar, red pepper flakes (if desired), brown sugar, and garlic powder.
Pour over the seasoned chicken.
Turn the crockpot on Low and cook for 4 hours.
After the 4 hours, I took the lid off and let it cook for another 30 minutes to thicken the sauce on the chicken a bit.
Serve with rice or mashed potatoes.
