Crockpot BBQ Chicken

on January 21, 2014


This recipe is from my sister, Stacy.  She watches the niece,nephews, and a cute little neighbor boy a few days during the week, so I go over on my lunch hour to give her a bit of a break.  She feeds me, too, which is always a plus :-).  We had this for lunch today and man, was it GOOD!!  So I asked her if she would share the recipe with us. The cherry jello is a weird addition, but I don’t think you can really taste it in the end.  It just thickens up the sauce and adds a little sweetness.   She served it with white rice today and it was just delicious.  It would also be great on a bun or little hawaiian rolls!

This also made an entire crockpot full of chicken, so it will last you a few meals or serve a crowd, either one.  It would be a great potluck addition (I would take it with a package or two of the hawaiian rolls myself) or just to keep in the fridge all week to eat for lunches.


Stacy’s Crockpot BBQ Chicken

3 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts, frozen

1 1/2 tsp cherry jello powder

2 cans of Pepsi

3/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 bottle of BBQ sauce, she uses Sweet Baby Ray’s

Combine all of your ingredients in a crockpot and cook on high for 4 hours.  When your chicken is done cooking, remove from the liquid and start shredding it.  While you do that, pour the liquid out of the crockpot and into a pot on the stove.  Cook it down over medium heat until it thickens up (to your liking) and then add your chicken back to it.  Serve over white rice, on a sandwich, etc.
