Sweet BBQ Chicken

Sweet BBQ Chicken

No intro this week because I’m feeling especially lazy. Which goes perfectly with this recipe. All it takes is 10 minutes of work on your part and you’ll be eating like a king for a few days.

First step…layer the bottom of the crockpot with bacon. As much as you prefer, though I think once you hit layer three the rendered fat in the final product might be a bit much. If you still want more bacon just bake it like you would normally then chop it up and put it in there.

See what I did there? I’m a damn problem solver. You’re welcome bacon fiends.

On top of the bacon, and this is the secret ingredient, add a whole onion that’s been chopped up. After cooking for 8-10 hours these taste so damn sweet and delicious it’s almost criminal.

Next, add the chicken boobs (also called breasts) and cover them in BBQ sauce. I usually aim to cover all of the chicken with BBQ sauce, but as you can see in the picture I failed. Next time I’ll make sure to take an *updated* grocery list with me.

When it’s been 8-10 hours you’re ready to eat. Just take something to stir it all together and you’ll be good to go. The chicken should just fall apart and all of the extra liquid will get soaked up by the meat.

Chicken, bacon, onions, BBQ sauce, and a crockpot is definitely considered winning.

    What kind of BBQ sauce do you use?

      Lately I’ve been using “Pats Ho-Made BBQ Sauce” because it’s the only one I can find in the store that is using all natural/quality ingredients.
