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.
