Slow Cooker Chicken BBQ

Super easy. And I just got done eating this and it was SOOOOOOOOOOOO good that I can't stop thinking about it. You know those times when your eyes roll back in your head and you think "this is the best thing I have ever eaten"? Well, admittedly, I have too many of those moments while I am pregnant to actually decide on what really is the best thing I have ever eaten, but at the moment I think it is this. I even took my own picture, I was so happy about it.

I ate this as a BBQ Chicken Sandwich on a hard cheese roll (the kind where the cheese is crusty on top) with light mayo, cheese, tomato, arugula (really healthy and kinda buttery soft - I love arugula), red onion, and pickles. It was so good I will never eat it any other way. Although I am sure it still stands pretty good even without all the toppings.

Oh, and if you use anything but Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce, you are taking a risk.

(For two people, I recommend using half the recipe)

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue


  • 6 frozen skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1 (12 ounce) bottle barbeque sauce (Sweet Baby Ray's is the best!)
  • 1/2 cup Italian salad dressing
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce


  1. Place chicken in a slow cooker. In a bowl, mix the barbecue sauce, Italian salad dressing, brown sugar, and Worcestershire sauce. Pour over the chicken.
  2. Cover, and cook 3 to 4 hours on High or 6 to 8 hours on Low.


  1. Yum. I would have never thought to mix BBQ sauce with italian dressing. Your picture even looks mouthwatering! I'm going to try this next time I do something in the crockpot.

  2. Lorena,

    Do you use actual bottled Italian dressing for this or the Italian dressing seasoning packets? Maybe it doesn't matter? I'm making this for dinner tonight. Also, another VERY important question: what is your preference on Baby Ray sauce? I noticed there are several kinds to choose from and I wasn't sure which one you and Rob liked the best.
