Slow Cooker Honey Barbecue Chicken
What a tasty, easy way to make chicken! The chicken gets almost fall off the bone tender when using the slow and low crockpot. I used a package of chicken legs but I’m thinking that this would be a great way to make chicken wings too! If you’re not a fan of bone-in chicken try this recipe with boneless skinless chicken thighs instead.
The sauce is a little bit sweet and a little bit spicy. I like to use Sweet Baby Ray’s Barbecue Sauce as the base and then add in a little honey, dijon, worcestershire and tabasco. If you’re nervous about the kick then cut the tabasco and the pepper in half. You can always add more later!
I served the chicken with mashed potatoes and a green salad with my favorite Olive Garden dressing on top. It was a solid meal that didn’t take much effort at all! Try this slow cooker honey barbecue chicken soon!
