There is a  Bulk cooking day in process at our house. Yes, it can be intimidating, but it’s SO worth the time.

Where should one start when you no idea what to do?

Easy  BBQ Chicken in the Crockpot

With five minutes of preparation time, this easy Crock pot Barbeque Chicken dinner is a reality. Throw a huge amount of chicken in the crock pot, some  BBQ sauce, and you’re on your way to making multiple meals with this recipe.

Right now I have homemade french bread [4] rising (perfect recipe for beginners), and 8 pounds of ground beef thawing right next to my 15 pound turkey. (Hopefully, they’ll be ready for tomorrow.) I will have enough turkey for dinner, turkey pot pies, and shredded turkey to put in freezer bags.

We’ve already finished up our homemade refried beans from last time around (vlog) [5], so I’m  beginning to soak them now.

Next up is a quadruple batch of the best ever Neiman Marcus chocolate chip cookies [6] with detailed bulk instructions, and some banana bread. [7]

Come join me….now the easiest Crock pot BBQ chicken ever…

When we were at Myrtle Beach last week, my girlfriends and I took turns making one main meal. Of course, we all loved the slow cooker (made in this model.)

This easy BBQ Chicken Recipe was certainly a hit with both children and adults alike. The beauty of this recipe is that any one from the age of 5 – 105 can master this easy crock pot recipe. Pair that with free or nearly free Kraft BBQ sauce ( [9]stockpiled from Kraft’s great coupons), marked down chicken, [10] and you have a simple, yet cost effective meal that allows you to feed a family of seven for under $500/month. [11] :)

If you enjoy BBQ Chicken, you will adore my Oven Bake Barbeque Chicken Thigh recipe [12] as well.

I love tweaking the recipe just a bit and making this easy and addicting Buffalo Chicken Dip recipe. [13]It’s perfect for a gourmet sandwich filling as well.

Enjoy how many meals you can get from this simple recipe.

Easy BBQ Chicken

  • 10 Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 bottles of BBQ Sauce
  • 1 cup of water (You may omit if you like thicker sauce.)

Add everything into crock pot and cook on high for 3 hours or cook on low all day. Shred after it’s all done cooking. Add more sauce to meet you favorite consistency when it’s done cooking.

The chicken and sauce size were difficult for me to guess because it’s dependent on how much chicken you want to fit in your crock pot. To me, filling it to the bring is essential so that you can have enough extra chicken for additional freezer meals.

You can not do anything “wrong” with this recipe as long as your crock pot is filled 2/3 of the way full.  I add the water so that  sauce may be used on top of rice for a meal. Then take the additional shredded chicken and baggy it up for future meals.

This is one of my top C.O.S.T Cooking Meals (cook once, serve twice or three times. [15]) It’s perfect for these delicious BBQ sandwiches, burritos, or quesadillas,  [16]or BBQ Chicken Pizza [17]
