Barbecue Chicken Without the Barbecue!

Delicious Chicken from the Crockpot!

Pinterest does it again!

This incredibly hot and dry weather has made grilling chicken on the grill seem more like a chore than easy summer cooking.  We found this great recipe for barbecue chicken on Pinterest. It satisfied our craving without breaking a sweat.


1 whole chicken  about 5 pounds (roaster or fryer)

1 bottle of your favorite barbecue sauce.  Our favorite is Sweet Baby Rays. We like the thickness of the sauce.

1 can Coca Cola

1 onion

1 lemon


1. Quarter the onion and lemon.

2. Place the washed and dried chicken in a large crockpot.

3. Place onions and lemon on top of chicken.

4. Pour entire bottle of barecue sauce over chicken.

5. Add the entire can of Coca-Cola.

6. Turn crockpot on high and cook for about 4 hours.

The chicken is moist and tender and falls of the bones.  It has the flavor of barbecue chicken that you might have on a good bbq chicken sandwich in a restaurant.  We really liked it.
