This is another great find years ago on AllRecipes – the recipe was submitted by Suzanne Mastaw, with over 3600 reviews.
I give this recipe 5 stars after making two slight changes – I used fresh chicken breasts and added chopped onion. So good.
All you need to make this awesome slow cooker recipe – boneless skinless chicken breasts, barbecue sauce, Zesty Italian dressing, Worcestershire sauce, onion (optional, but highly recommended) and brown sugar – that’s it! Don’t be scared of the combination of ingredients…they work so well together.
This was a huge hit with my whole family. My youngest can be a pretty picky eater and she gave this one rave reviews and my husband was actually excited about leftovers.
Give this awesome recipe a try – you won’t be disappointed.
Slow Cooker Zesty Barbecue Chicken
Slightly adapted – Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue by Suzanne Mastaw, allrecipes .com
- 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
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!
