Easy Crockpot BBQ Chicken – For Those Days When You Fall UP the Stairs…

I’ve been told before that I’m a very descriptive writer. Thank you for that compliment. The idea is for someone to visualize your experiences in a comical way using descriptive words. For instance, if I tell you that I put a tiny bell on my tiny dog’s collar, you wouldn’t think much of it. If I tell you that I put a tiny bell on my tiny dog’s collar and she ran for her life as I fell up the stairs while only hearing that bell jingle feverishly, you might get a better idea of what may have happened.

As every morning goes, my fuzzy beast demands to be taken outside, and not in the general sense that you’re used to; she jumps on me and gets in my face to let me know there’s a deposit to be made.

I take her and grab my phone as I needed to make an important call. Ironically, I needed to call the doctor’s office (more on that later). She does her business and I’m on hold with the doctor. As I make my way up the stairs, I see my neighbor and good friend, Melissa. Phone in hand, I get ready to smile and say hello, instead tripping up the cement stairs clad in my stupid socks and FLIP FLOPS (I was oozing sex appeal at that point). Off in the distance, I hear the frantic sound of Koko’s bell as she feverishly ran up the stairs to avoid a 125 pound monster landing on her. At the same time, Melissa is locking her door, turns, and has a look of shock, fear, and compassion all at once. Each of her arms had things dangling from them as she made way to the top of the stairs. I had fallen and all of the weight went right to my funny bone.

Almost immediately, I felt faint. Poor Melissa, whom later admitted that the look on my face made her feel like I was either going to punch her or cry, was on her way to work and could tell that no help was going to be accepted. I grabbed hold of the railing, and in my best Dark Knight Batman voice said, “I’m ok. I just need to sit down”. Only this time I wasn’t impersonating Batman. I slowly made my way up the stairs while Koko cautiously followed, all while still being on hold.

This is where an easy recipe comes into play slow that you can lay on the floor and recover all day after sending your body into a jolt of hot and cold sweats while seeing stars and hearing imaginary lawn mowers in your head.

At that, I give you:

Easy Crockpot BBQ Chicken

  • A bunch of boneless chicken breasts (preferably anywhere from 3-5)
  • A packet of BBQ spice (my fav is the Korean BBQ found in the International Foods aisle)
  • A couple cups of your favorite BBQ sauce
  • White Vinegar
  • 1/2 TBSP of Garlic Powder
  • a day at home

Make sure you line your crockpot with one of those crockpot liners. Trim and season your breasts (lol) on both sides with some of that BBQ spice pack. Line the bottom of your crockpot with the breasts (lol). Put three cups of your fav BBQ over the top of those bad boys and then sprinkle the rest of your spice pack (if you have any left) over the top. Next, add your garlic and roughly one to one and a half cups of white vinegar. Let it sit for 6 hours on low. Shred your chicken with a fork before serving.

Rest up and use your good arm for manning the television while you wait for deliciousness to make itself.
