These beauties are finger lickin’ good, literally ya’ll! This is probably the easiest crock pot recipe I have ever made!
Did I mention these are easy? And sooooo, good, yeah, you get the picture:
1 ea Whole Chicken (I took off the wings to save for wing night)
2-3 Tbls BBQ Rub (I used Bone Suckin’ Sauce Seasoning & Rub)
1/2-1 Cup BBQ Sauce (I used Russell’s sauce from the restaurant in Chicago, I suggest using a thinner sauce to get a good even coating)
This recipe made 6 sandwiches for Hubs and I but that is only because
we love to stuff our faceswe have a healthy appetite. If you are more conservative with your portions you will easily get 8-10 sandwiches out of this recipe.
All ya do is rub the chicken with the seasoning, rub it alll over. Under the skin even… like so:
Place it in your crock pot breast side down with nothing else, no liquid, nada. Cover, place on low heat and let it go to town. Ours cooked for about 9ish hours. When it’s ready it shall look like this:
As you can see it produces a lot of natural juice. I just removed the chicken. I kept the juice separate, saving about 1/4 of the liquid. Shred the chicken discarding the bones and skin. Place the shredded chicken back in the slow cooker on the “keep warm” setting. Pour the liquid from the crock pot over the meat and add the bbq sauce little by little until it is covered in as much sauce as your taste. Cover the pot.
Use this time to finish any sides you want with it. Place on hamburger buns and drizzle with more sauce if you’d like. This is so unbelievably tender you’ll wonder why you never thought of it!
I hope you enjoy this and please visit my blog for more recipes, kitchen tips and tricks, fashion and the occasional ramble! Thanks for reading!
