Shredded BBQ Chicken

  • 1 (18 oz.) Bottle of BBQ sauce. Better the quality better the sauce. DO NOT use cheap BBQ sauce!
  • 1/2 cup Italian Dressing
  • 3 TBSP Brown Sugar
  • 2 TBSP Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 Chicken breasts, Frozen or thawed.
  • 1 bell pepper, cut Julienne style
  1. In a crock pot place chicken breast and bell pepper. In a bowl mix together BBQ sauce, Italian dressing, Worcestershire sauce and brown sugar. Pour over chicken and peppers mixing well.
  2. Cook on High for 3-4 hours (HIGH) or 6-8 hours (LOW). Half hour before serving shred chicken and place back into crock pot. You could shred and let it sit for 5-10 minutes but the longer you let the shredded chicken rest in the bbq sauce the better it will come out.
  3. Serve and enjoy.

The dish came out great. A few things that I did differantly was that I used 18oz of BBQ sauce instead of 12oz. (I used Baby Ray's Chipole and Honey BBQ sauce.) I also did not use a whole bell pepper only a half just because it was all I had in the house at the time.

Great Recipe.

Emily and I think you are right. 18 oz of bbq sauce is needed. I changed the recipe! Thanks for your feedback!
