Busy Day Chicken

Busy Day Chicken

Susan Sunderman 5

"Easiest recipe I've ever fixed! I received it when my oldest son was a baby --today he is 17 and it is still a hit! Just a few minutes of preparation, and all day cooking. Dinner will be hot and ready whenever you have a chance to eat. Meat falls from the bones, and sauce can be used as a gravy for rice or potatoes. Enjoy!"

  1. Put chicken, legs up, into slow cooker. Pour sauce over and inside the chicken. Cover.
  2. Cook for 8 to 10 hours on low setting. It is not a good idea to check it, as steam escapes and it takes quite awhile to reheat.

I thought this was a good concept, but I changed the recipe a bit. I used six boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 2lbs) seasoned with garlic powder, pepper, and a little salt. I put a lit...

This is really a great idea. I read the reviews before I prepared it, noted that some said that it was dry, and decided to add some water to thin the barbacue sauce down and give the recipe les...

I was skeptical... BBQ in a crock-pot? Well, I used a combination of "Sweet and Tangy BBQ Sauce" and "Grant's Midnight Grill" sauces <both AllRecipes, put notes on both>. Took skin off and any...

Very good recipe! I have made it twice so far using kraft honey barbacue sauce and chicken leg quaters. The 1st time I made it the sauce thinned out and it took away alot of flavor. So the 2nd t...

I used chicken breasts and a whole jar of bbq sauce. My kids loved it! The chicken was very tender and fell off the bone.

This was really tender and fell off the bone. The only problem is that it sits in so much grease in the crockpot.

Delicous, the meat will fall off the bone!!! The flavor is astounding, also try different sauces for cooking like lemon pepper marinade, etc. A++++

This recipe will not be dry if you use chicken thighs. Breast meat will turn out dry (don't know why). We also like to use KRAFT Honey Mustard BBQ Sauce (we use the entire bottle). We LOVE it...

I rate this chicken recipe with 5 stars for ease but a 1 on flavor, very bland. I have tried this recipe 3 times now each time using different brands and flavors of BBQ sauce (the latest being s...
