    do you add water or anything to the crock pot or just lay the chicken in the bottom and turn it on? does the juice from the chicken provide enough moisture?

    • Heidi says

      Hi Steve ~ no need to add water or anything other than the chicken at the beginning. The chicken will end up cooking in its own juices. Hope that helps! 😉

  2. Joanna says

    Do you have to drain the juices 3 hours in? I plan to put it all together before I leave for work and have it ready when we all get home 8 hours later… Help!

    • Heidi says

      Hi Joanna ~ if you’d rather, you can cook it on ‘Low’ for twice as long without draining the juices. I like to drain the juices to keep the sauce nice and thick, but adding all ingredients at the beginning would work as well… you’ll just end up with a thinner sauce. Hope that helps! 😉

    This was amazing!!! I made it tonight and the family ate it up!!! I added about half a glass of water because mine was in the crockpot longer and I did not want it to dry out. I Will be making this again!

  4. Jana says

    Do you prefer this over rootbeer recipe? Or does it just depend on if you like coke or root beer better? And should I drain the juices if I plan on shredding the chicken at the end to make into sandwiches?

    • bianca says

      No it can’t be frozen defrost it first or boil in water to defrost ….then put it in crock pot with out water ….it cooks in its own juices

    I was skeptical about cooking the chicken by itself, but it came out awesome! I didn’t realize cooking chicken could be so easy! Ha. It was perfect at 3 hours. I took the chicken out, shredded it, and drained the juices. I put the shredded chicken back in, threw some K.C. Masterpiece BBQ sauce instead of Sweet Baby Ray’s because that is what I had, and probably a little more Coke than I should have, but the result is amazing and incredibly easy! I’m serving it with rice cooked in chicken broth then sauteed in garlic. Now I just have to wait for my boyfriend to get home! Thank you for sharing this ridiculously easy and delicious recipe!

    • Kaitlyn says

      Forgot to mention, I also threw a little salt, pepper and garlic powder on top of the chicken when I first put it in.

    • Heidi says

      Aww ~ you’re very welcome, Kaitlyn! I’m so glad you liked it! 😉 And yes ~ nothing beats how simple the recipe is!

  6. Kimberly Worley says

    This recipe was easy and delicious. My family enjoyed every bite. Thanks for the recipe. I will be trying more recipes. Thanks again.

  7. Kelsey says

    Hi! I’m excited to make this chicken but I was wondering if you begin cooking the chicken in the croc-pot, what sauce do you use? Just water or..?


    • Heidi says

      Hi Kelsey ~ nothing is required when cooking the chicken… it will end up cooking in its own juices. Hope that helps! 😉

    • Heidi says

      Hi Charissa… absolutely! Plain BBQ Sauce works just fine, and shredding with 2 forks after it’s cooked is a delicious way to serve. ENJOY! 😉
