Things to keep in mind when you use your slow cooker

Our slow cooker chicken is the perfect thing to whip up on a Sunday and then use all week: we’re talking tacos, nachos, baked potatoes, pizza, casseroles, soups, dips, and more. With the chicken ready and waiting, these dinners come together in minutes—even after a busy evening of chores, homework, and football practice.

FULL RECIPE: Classic Slow Cooker Barbecue Chicken

Ingredients:
2-4 lbs. chicken pieces (can be bone-in and skin-on, or boneless and skinless)
2 tsp. garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 20 oz. bottle of Head Country Bar-B-Q Sauce, your favorite flavor
1/2 C. water 
2 bell peppers, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped

Directions:

Season chicken pieces with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Place the seasoned chicken in the insert of a slow cooker.

Top chicken with your favorite flavor of Head Country Bar-B-Q Sauce. Add a thin layer of water, just to cover the bottom of the cooker, down the side of the insert to avoid disturbing the sauce topping on the chicken.

Meanwhile, dice peppers and onions. Saute with olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat until tender and beginning to char. Add to the slow cooker, sprinkling over the chicken. Cover the cooker. Cook chicken on low for 5-6 hours. 

Once cooked, shred chicken in a medium size bowl. Separate into meal-size servings, then plan the week’s menu with the recipes below.
