Slow Cooker Honey Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches

Slow Cooker Honey Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches

This might be the easiest recipe I’ve ever posted on this blog, so no excuses for not trying this one! :) These slow cooker honey barbecue chicken sandwiches are so simple to throw together and they taste amazing. Mike loves this meal and I find myself turning to it frequently when I’m trying to plan out weekly menus. It’s full of flavor and the meat is nice and tender. Basically you dump everything in the slow cooker, turn it on, and a few hours later you have dinner! Yes, it’s that easy. :) Can I give you a tip though? The sandwiches taste even better if you serve them on homemade french bread rolls!

    I saw this on foodgawker and was so tempted just looking at it. This might be as you the simplest and yummiest burger ever.

    Can I make these chicken recipes with frozen chicken? Do I have to thaw before it goes into the slow cooker? I’ve just introduced myself to freezer meals and it would be so good if these recipes worked with frozen chicken! Thanks!

    I followed the recipe extactly and noticed that there was quite a lot of BBQ sauce at the end. It was dripping out of the bun. Also, I made the mistake of cooking the chicken for the full 8 hours on low which cause it to be a bit burnt. Next time I will decrease the amount of BBQ sauce that I use, not in half but maybe to just under 1 cup total instead of the full 18 fl. oz. And also, I will cook it for about 6-7 hours on low instead of the full 8 hours. Thanks for the recipe!

    I’m sure it would be fine if you threw the chicken in frozen I’ve made 3-4 recipes I found online and used frozen chicken each time and it turned out perfect each time. I’m making this recipe tomorrow (3/20/2014) if I have problems I’ll post them otherwise it had gone well.

    It turned out pretty good. I did use frozen chicken and it was just fine. My only issues were that it wasn’t juicy enough. But the reasons for this were A) I used 3 big breasts. B) I over cooked it. I set the crockpot up before I go to work so my wife diesnt have to cook, so I started it so it’d have almost 8 hours to cook when 6 probably would have done the trick. If you use 3 big breasts add a half dose of each ingredient or so.

    SOOOO good!! I followed the recipe exactly and it took less than 5 min to get it all together. I cooked for about 6 hours and that was perfect. I will definitely be making this a regular dinner at my house!

    What if you don’t have brown sugar? Can I omit it from the recipe or should I substitute something else?
