For those really busy days or when you just can’t decide on what to make barbecued chicken in the slow cooker should hit the spot! Easy, and little fuss all you have to do is come up with a few side dishes and dinner is complete. I didn’t use a broiler chicken, so it doesn’t matter what kind you have on hand, just adjust your slow cooker to the size. Smaller sizes obviously cook quicker. You can also do this in the oven , again adjust the cooking time it will be anywhere from 40 minutes to an hour depending on the size of chicken pieces you are using.
1 3-4lbs fryer chicken cut up or pieces of chicken (thighs, legs etc. )
1 medium onion sliced
1 medium lemon sliced up
1 bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce (18 ounces would be a good bottle)
Half a stick of butter
Place chicken in the slow cooker. Drop butter in then pour ingredients in over chicken BBQ sauce being last. Make sure it coats all the chicken. Cover and cook on low 6 hours, or high for about 3-4 hours or until chicken is no longer pink in the center. My slow cooker cooks high even on the low temp so your timing will vary. Serve with a healthy salad, maybe some corn on the cob, corn bread and enjoy!!
