Crockpot BBQ Chicken

I am envious of those of you who take beautiful photographs of the main dishes you've prepared. I struggle to get the shot set up and still eat before everything is cold. This is one of those photos! Photo aside this is a great chicken recipe. Chicken is a staple at our house and I am always looking for new recipes.

I found this one over at One Crazy Cookie. Tiffanee, thanks for a great addition to my chicken repertoire.

Crock Pot Barbeque Chicken
chicken pieces (I used 4 chicken thighs)
1 cup BBQ sauce
1/4 cup balsamic vinaigrette (I used balsamic vinegar)
1/2 cup pop (I used Root Beer. Tiffanee says Cherry Coke Zero is her favorite to add. )
1 Tablespoon minced onions
3 Tablespoons brown sugar
Place all ingredients in crock pot. Stir to combine and cook on low for 4-6 hours.

Update: (Optional) About 30 minutes before you are going to eat mix up 1-2 tablespoons cornstarch in a little bit of water and mix it in the sauce. Replace the lid, keep it on low and cook about 30 minutes. Stirring occasionally. This will allow the sauce to thicken up a bit.

I am linking this to Tasty Tuesdays, Tuesday's at The Table, Tempt My Tummy Tuesday and Your Recipe My Kitchen!


  1. well, I think I've just learned to like cold food :P

    This crockpot chicken looks delicious!

  2. Love using my crockpot and this recipe sounds fantastic! Very hard to get a decent photo with slow cooker food; yours looks pretty good and tasty!

  3. it can be hard. I almost envy people who don't plan to eat the food they make and photograph. Your chicken looks and sounds delicious. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

  4. It's a great shot, and I'm laughing because I have the same thing, and usually it's my plate that's cold :) Great looking chicken, so saucy, just the way we love it at my house!

  5. Yummy Julie. I love any kind of chicken and I throw it in a crockpot all summer. This will be cooking in the garage next week it looks so good!

  6. I struggle with getting a good photo too!
    The chicken looks yummy. I have a sticky sweet bbq sauce if you are interested,let me know; it goes great on pork or chicken, and it's easy.

  7. That sounds like a wonderful way to make bbq chicken. I love 'easy' in the summer.

  8. Oh, yum! This sounds delicious!

  9. Thanks for the sweet words and link up!! Your chicken looks fabulous. I wanted to eat it right off your blog!!

  10. I say make enough for leftovers and set up the picture the next day when you're not dying to dive in. I know D. hates having to wait to eat steaming food while I photograph it ;-) Look delicious though! Still making me hungry!
