So what I have learned about “crock-potting” is that certain meats cook fast while others are more pokey. Chicken breasts that are boneless cook very quickly and if you leave them in the pot too long they will dry out and taste yuck-o. BUT if you toss them in frozen, then they can spend the day in the slow cooker! So this recipe will call for the frozen variety of chicken, but if you’d like to use fresh, just cut the time!
We’ve made this recipe before. It’s great shredded on a bun or whole next to a baked potato! You decide! Here’s the scoop:
Zesty Crock Pot Chicken
4-6 Frozen Chicken Breasts
1/2 cup italian dressing (I use the kind in a little packet that you mix up, but a bottle would work too)
One 12 ounce bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce… I LOVE Famous Dave’s Sweet and Zesty
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 T Worcestershire sauce
Place chicken in a slow cooker. In a bowl, mix the barbecue sauce, Italian salad dressing, brown sugar, and Worcestershire sauce. Pour over the chicken. Cover, and cook 3 to 4 hours on High or 6 to 8 hours on Low.
