Feeling too tired and hot to cook dinner? Me too. After a full day of squeezing in work, playgrounds, pools, and yard work, it’s awesome to come home to an easy dinner that practically cooked itself. This Easy BBQ Crockpot Chicken uses bottled barbecue sauce as a base, it doesn’t get simpler than this!
SLOW COOKER CHICKEN BBQ
This chicken BBQ is perfect on rolls, in lettuce wraps, or plain. My children love to eat it for lunch with a side of fresh corn on the cob! It’s also super convenient to bring to cookouts with family and friends. But watch out…it won’t last long!
