The Homemade BBQ Sauce
Our slow cooker BBQ chicken uses a homemade BBQ sauce that is super easy to put together. You probably already have all the ingredients in your pantry! Of course, if you prefer, you can always use your favorite bottled sauce. This recipe can be easily adjusted to make more servings without needing to change the cooking time. You can simply use our scaling feature in the recipe to halve, double, or triple the ingredients. It’s that simple!
High or Low Slow Cooker Temperature?
Wondering which temperature setting to use for your slow cooker? It depends on the size of your chicken breasts. If they are small, it usually takes about 2-3 hours on high. So, if you’re at home while it’s cooking, we recommend going for the higher setting. If you prefer to cook the chicken on low, set it for 4-5 hours.
How Much Sauce for the Chicken?
For 4 small chicken breasts, one batch of sauce is enough. However, if your chicken breasts are larger, we suggest doubling the sauce. Trust us, this sauce is so good that you’ll want to have extra on hand. In fact, we even drizzle some on top of the cooked chicken for an extra burst of flavor!
Our favorite way to enjoy slow cooker BBQ chicken is on a kaiser roll topped with coleslaw or some banana peppers and sliced red onion. It makes for an absolutely delicious BBQ chicken sandwich. However, you can also serve the chicken breasts whole if you prefer. The choice is yours!
