I was pretty dissapointed with the taste. Did add a bit of cayenne brown sugar and used Sweet Baby Rays. To me it had an artificial taste to it. My sons liked it but I think I will take the extra time and look for an authentic from scratch recipe. Read More

Wow! I was skeptical about this recipe thinking it was just too easy and there were not enough ingredients but my whole family thought it was DELICIOUS! I'm making it again for the second time in two weeks because we all liked it so much and it is so easy! I set my slow cooker on low the whole way through and only used about 1/2 of a very large sweet onion. Be sure to pick a great BBQ sauce and you'll love this easy recipe! Read More

I actually made this in the oven instead of the crock pot. I cooked 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts in the oven for about 2 1/2 hours on 375 degrees with the onion and one cup of chicken broth. then I drained the remaining broth, shredded the chicken, added Baby Ray's BBQ sauce and put back in the oven for 45 minutes. AWESOME!!!! I will be making this again!! Read More

Used Baby Rays BBQ sauce, mmmmm. We like a smokey, spicy touch of flavour so we added a few drops liquid smoke, tabasco & a couple healthy pinches of cumin, w/a few dash of garlic powder for good measure.Was delish!!! Read More

This recipe is everything a slow cooker recipe should be--quick, fast, flavorful and cheap. As with any slow cooker recipe, you need to babysit the dish the first time you make it because slow cookers vary greatly in how hot they cook. For me, this dish was done after 3.5 hours on low. Read More

It was easy to throw into the crockpot, I cooked mine on high for 4 hours, shredded the chicken and then turned it to low for about 30 minutes. My family enjoyed it. I used Sweet Baby Ray's original sauce and it was a little too sweet, so I'll try another sauce next time. I think this should work good when we are back in school and I need a crockpot recipe that I can leave on low 10 hours. Read More
