Crockpot Barbecued Chicken





The crockpot is one of the best time savers in the kitchen.
In the summer, it's great for keeping cooks from heating up the kitchen
when all you want to do is drink lemonade and eat ice pops.
In the colder months,
there is nothing better for making soups and stews,
comfort food that warms you, body and soul.

The barbecue sauce was made the day before,
and there is still plenty in the fridge for future samplings.
It tastes great on fish, steak fries and burgers too.
This week I cooked several drumsticks for Big K,
but the recipe makes enough to coat a whole bird,
with some left for dipping.
Simply dress the chicken with the barbecue sauce,
(we removed the skin),
place it in the crockpot on low,
and let it simmer for 6 hours.

What could be easier?


No-Sugar BBQ Sauce
1 C ketchup
  1/2 C water
1 T onion powder
1/2 C Apple Cider Vinegar 
2 T honey 
1/4 t salt 
1/4 t celery seed 
1/4 t cinnamon
Bring all ingredients to a boil, 
then reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
Enjoy!
