Crockpot BBQ Chicken

This Crockpot BBQ Chicken recipe is so simple and delicious! You’re entire family will love it and you will love that there is little clean up and fuss.

I have a digital Crockpot, so it basically does all the work for me; I just have to remember to set it before I leave for work.

When I get home, all I have to worry about are the sides. As a working mom, this is super convenient. I know even you ‘stay at home moms & dads’ will appreciate the ease of this recipe.

If you don't like barbeque sauce, you can easily replace it with a packet of taco seasoning or about half a bottle of Italian dressing. The possibilities are endless. When I use taco seasoning, I add onions and a can of diced tomatoes. Oh, you will love it!

You can usually find whole chicken fairly cheap on sale. I stock up when they are between $.69 and $.99. This is my “stock-up’ price and I usually buy about 6. I throw them in the freezer and this will last me until the next time they are on sale.

And honestly, you really don't even have to cut it up. The meat will fall off the bone either way.


  • 1 whole chicken, cut up (or just your favorite pieces)
  • 2 cups barbecue sauce (substitute taco seasoning or Italian dressing if you’d like)


Place chicken in the Crockpot and pour on the BBQ sauce. Cook on low for 6-8 hours, or high for 4 hours.

Now just “set it and forget it”. Ok, I know I sound like an infomercial, but it’s really that easy.

This recipe is super cheap to make and is always hit at my house. I usually serve with baked beans and coleslaw. You can even shred the chicken and make sandwiches.

Please let me know if you try this recipe, I’d love to hear how it came out and what variation you made.
