This recipe is a copy from an older recipe I have, which I used pork instead of chicken. This week I have been pressed for time and wanted an easy barbecue chicken recipe and a favorite older barbecue recipe came to mind. If you want to see my pork version of the recipe, you can see it here.

My favorite thing to add for depth of flavor to a lot of my slow cooker recipes is Worcestershire sauce. I always have it on hand, it adds a tangy flavor to this recipe.

You can see in the photos what a great sauce this recipe has. I like to serve this meal over rice, and if you have a rice maker, this entire meal couldn’t be easier.
