Slow Cooker Dr Pepper BBQ Chicken is a simple three ingredient meal that your family is sure to love.
This recipe has been a favorite at our house for years. I recently made it for company because I needed a really easy meal and I realized that I had never shared the recipe here with you. I knew I needed to fix that.
I have shared my Slow Cooked Dr Pepper Pulled Pork with you, which is the same basic recipe, but I knew I needed to share the chicken version as well because it is just as good as the pork version.
This recipe is so quick and easy to make. So maybe it is not quick, because you do use the slow cooker, but it is very quick to put together in your slow cooker. Set it to cook and dinner really is quick and easy to make.
The best thing about this recipe might just be the fact that it only contains three ingredients. Four if you count the buns or bread that you serve it on.
I like to keep this a really simple meal and serve it with french fries or chips and a salad or fresh vegetables.
The night I served it to company I served it with frozen french fries, frozen sweet potato fries, and fruit. Yes, I serve frozen french fries to company. They are easy to cook and just about everyone loves them. They are especially a favorite with kids.
This Dr Pepper BBQ Chicken also freezes well. It is a great recipe to make a big batch of when you get chicken on sale and freeze for easy meals later on.
The measurements on this are not exact either. You can add a little more meat or a little more sauce and be just fine.
