Crockpot BBQ Chicken Three Ways

Crockpot BBQ Shredded Chicken

I almost hesitate to even call this a recipe because it is so ridiculously simple.I suppose if you want to be fancy you could make your own BBQ sauce from scratch to take it to the next level…but I kind of love taking the lazy approach from time to time when life gets a little extra crazy.

A jar of your favorite BBQ sauce, a couple of chicken breasts, a few seasonings for extra flavor and a crockpot are all you need to make a tasty dish that can be transformed into a number of awesome meals. A true leftover marvel!

Some of our favorite ways to use leftover crockpot barbecue chicken include:

  • BBQ Chicken Sandwiches:
    • BBQ Chicken + Storebought fancy hamburger buns from the bakery
  • BBQ Chicken Bakers:
    • BBQ Chicken + Baked potato with butter and cheese (or whatever your heart desires)
  • BBQ Chicken Quesadillas:
    • BBQ Chicken + Simple Cheese Quesadilla (or an Avocado & Cheese Quesadilla — Mmm…)
