Slow Cooker Sundays: Week 2

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you went to Mass today and started your week off with peace and positivity. It is rainy and chilly here (not complaining at all) so I was thankful for a warm slow cooker meal to share with my family.

Today’s recipe is versatile, delicious, and most of all-easy! Let’s get started.

Savory Barbecue Chicken

You will need:

  • 6-8 boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 small yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 bottle of your favorite barbecue sauce
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

Spray your slow cooker with non-stick spray. Add the chicken to the bottom of the slow cooker, followed by the onions, apple cider vinegar, and 1/2 of the bottle of barbecue sauce. Mix around until it is all combined. Cook on low for 6 hours.

Once the time is up, shred the chicken with tongs or two forks. Serve on a warm bun slathered with some of the remaining barbecue sauce. This chicken is also great as a stand alone meat served with a salad or some vegetables. The fun part? You can also make this with buffalo sauce. Just follow the exact same instructions above and boom- you’ve got buffalo chicken!

If you want to prep this ahead of time and freeze it- just add everything to a gallon sized freezer bag, mix it up, rid the bag of air, and store it for up to six months. I make two freezer bags at a time and reserve an unopened bottle of barbecue sauce in the pantry. That way I am not letting half of a bottle of barbecue sauce sit in the fridge to spoil.

I prefer to use chicken thighs because they don’t dry out in the slow cooker. I have attempted to cook chicken breast meat in there several times and it always ends up dry and tasteless no matter what I do with it.

I received some amazing feedback from the beef roast I posted last Sunday! Thank you for everyone who tried it. I am happy you are enjoying this series so far.

As always, lots of  love and many blessings!

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good,
for his mercy endures forever.
Let the house of Israel say,
“His mercy endures forever.”
