Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken

3 Ingredient Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken at

BBQ meals are probably one of my favorite things to make in the slow cooker. Along with my pulled pork recipe, this BBQ chicken is super simple with only 3 ingredients! Throw it in the slow cooker in the morning or afternoon, and you're all set for dinner. You could even take it a step further and easily turn it into shredded chicken!

  1. You can use the chicken frozen or thawed. Coat the chicken with some seasoning salt.
  2. Pour barbecue sauce and Pepsi into the slow cooker and lightly mix together.
  3. Add chicken to barbecue sauce/Pepsi mixture and cover.
  4. Cook on low for 4-6 hours (closer to 6 if you want to shred the chicken). Lightly stir the chicken around before serving.
  5. Carefully remove chicken and eat with a side of rice or mashed potatoes, or place on a bun for a delicious BBQ chicken sandwich.


  1. This looks absolutely delicious. We LOVE Sweet Baby Ray's too. Yum!

  2. Sweet Baby Ray's is OUR favorite, too! Those frozen chicken tenders are so handy.

  3. Wow, BBQ sauce and Pepsi, huh? Gotta try this!
