I recently got a craving for barbecue chicken. I really wanted to cook some for dinner for my boyfriend and myself, but there were a couple of problems: 1) I’m not a very experienced cook. I basically only make pasta and pancakes. 2) My mom taught me once how to make barbecue chicken, but it was on a grill and it’s way too cold outside for that.
My problems were solved when I found this recipe for Barbecue Slow Cooker Chicken. How perfect! I basically just put all the ingredients in my slow cooker in the morning and by the time evening rolled around, I had a perfect barbecue dinner for two! I love how the recipe uses catsup, brown sugar and Worcestershire sauce to create a sweet but savory flavor. To see what other spices are used to make this chicken so tasty, you should check out the full recipe.
My search for barbecue chicken recipes got me thinking. What other chicken recipes could I make with my slow cooker? I decided to check out our sister site allfreeslowcookerrecipes.com, and I was honestly surprised by how many slow cooker chicken recipes I found. They have a whole collection of the 12 Best Ever Slow Cooker Chicken Recipes, which includes everything from Cashew Chicken and Rice (a delicious Asian dish topped with sliced mushrooms and cashews) to Barbecue Chicken and Cheddar Quesadillas (featuring its own special recipe for shredded chicken unlike anything you’ve ever tasted).
A little more poking around the Internet turned me on to even MORE slow cooker chicken recipes. I am so excited to try the Slow Cooker Angel Chicken from The Frugal Flamingo. The picture alone was enough to make my mouth water! I’m also looking forward to using my slow cooker to make this delicious cranberry chicken recipe I found from The Frugal Girls. I found so many drool-worthy slow cooker chicken recipes, I can’t possibly begin to tell you about them all, but here are three more that I can’t help but mention:
- Slow Cooker Chicken Curry from TheeManyCooks
- Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Chili from Sprinkled With Flour
- Chicken Adobo from Looky Tasty
I really never thought I would find so many different ways to cook chicken in my slow cooker! Now I’m pretty much set until summer when I can finally break out my grill!
