Crockpot Barbeque Chicken


This healthy slow cooked BBQ chicken recipe is so good it will make you want to slap your mama!  It’s easy to make, budget friendly, and has plenty of flavor.  What I love about this recipe is that I always have leftovers so it helps me with meal prep for the week.

This is a family favorite in my home so I hope you  enjoy it just as much!


  • 5 Pounds of fresh Chicken Breasts (frozen is too watery)
  • 1/2 Cup  Light Italian Dressing
  • 3 Tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar “With The Mother”
  • 12 Ounces BBQ sauce *here’s my homemade recipe- or search for the lowest sodium and healthiest BBQ sauce
