On select Tuesdays I share delicious recipes either inspired by my books or that are just plain delicious!
I spent some time around a chicken coop this past week, so today's recipe is inspired by it! There's nothing like the tangy goodness of barbecue chicken, but with cooler days approaching, it might not always be convenient to zip outside to the grill. Instead, I've got a crockpot version that's so easy you may not even miss those lazy summer days standing over the barbecue! Okay, maybe not, but it's still delish!
Crockpot Barbecue Chicken
8 pieces of chicken (I cut up a whole chicken, or use thighs/drumsticks on sale)
1 bottle of barbecue sauce
1/4 cup vinegar (apple cider works, but regular is good)
1 tsp red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper
1/4 cup brown sugar (you could sub honey, molasses, or palm/coconut sugar)
1 tsp garlic powder (or mince up a garlic clove or two)
Mix all the ingredients together in your crockpot except the chicken. Arrange your chicken pieces in the sauce; turn over to coat everything well. Cook on low for 4-6 hours until chicken is tender.
