      Hi Jaycee… yes ~ you can try doubling the amount of cooking time, and cooking on the ‘Low’ setting on your crockpot. Hope that helps! 😉

      ~ Heidi

        Can put ingredients in crockpot liner night before. This way easy to just put in crockpot in the morning.this way it will take bit longer to book,

  1. Elizaberh says

    Hmm… How do you ‘cook’ the chicken for the first 3 hours??? Just stick the chicken in the crockpot, cover and turn to high for 3 hours?

  2. Jessica says

    Have you ever shredded the chicken, then added the sauce? I was thinking about making sandwiches with the shredded meat. What do you think?

    • Heidi says

      Hi Jessica ~ I’m sure that would taste great! And yes… I do sometimes shred the chicken, too. 😉

    Made it last night with chicken drumsticks, I only had 6 if them, so I took 3/4 the sauce and poured it over the chicken for 4.5 hours on high, then drained it and poured the remaining sauce over it and cooked it for the final 30 min….DELISH! And bonus, my kids think I’m the coolest mom because I cooked with Root Beer. :)

    • Heidi says

      Haha… I’m so glad you {and the kiddos} loved it, Nikki! I just love Crockpot Drumsticks, too… so I bet that was a delicious variation!

    I made this today. It was a huge hit with my husband and 2 teenage boys. I used 8 chicken breasts and put them in the crock pot frozen when I left for work. My son turned on the crock pot at noon and they were perfectly done when I got home at 6. I I baked some potatoes while the sauce was warming through the chicken. What a fabulous and easy meal!

    • Heidi says

      I’m so glad your family liked it, Joanne! My hubby and 2 boys are big fans of this recipe as well… and I love how EASY it is! 😉

  5. tara says

    i want to use chicken breasts and turn on before work and leave on low for the day. When would you suggest adding the rootbeer? When I get home and leave while cooking rice and veggies?

  6. James says

    If I were to cook this on low, how long would I cook it for. I’m wanting to start it in the morning, and finish it up when I get home?

    • Heidi says

      Hi James ~ 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! 😉

  7. says

    Will the combination of the Root Beer and Sweet Ray’s make this a real sweet sauce? My grandson loves Root Beer /BQ sauce but, he doesn’t like it sweet. Any ideas? Love your recipes !
