  1. Ana says:

    So you cook the chicken in the crock pot with out any liquid at first? Will it not stick or burn?

    • Heidi says:

      Hi Ana ~ that’s correct. It won’t stick or burn, because it will end up cooking in the juices it releases. Hope that helps! ;)

  2. Meredith says:

    Can I cook the chicken from a frozen state or does it have to be thawed before placed into the crockpot?

  3. Danielle says:

    Will this work with other cuts of chicken? My husband is far from a fan of boneless/skinless breast. :-/ Skinless drumsticks, boneless/skinless thighs, or maybe even whole leg quarters maybe? Thanks!

    • Heidi says:

      Hi Danielle ~ absolutely! Just keep an eye on the cooking time depending on which cut of meat you choose. Drumsticks typically cook for close to the same time, but I’ve had thighs cook a bit faster. ENJOY! ;)

  4. Beth says:

    I used frozen chicken breasts, put all three ingredients in at once and cooked on low for 6 hours. Incredible!!

  5. Heather says:

    Could you cook on low in the crockpot in the barbeque/ dr pepper mix for say 7 hours? Then shread the meat and serve on buns?

    • Heidi says:

      Hi Heather ~ absolutely… you can do that as well! I like to drain the juices first to make a thicker sauce, but it would definitely work to do it this way, too! :) ENJOY!!

  6. Daniela Silvestri says:

    Sounds delicious! Can this be turned into pulled chicken?

    • Heidi says:

      Hi Daniela ~ absolutely! Simply shred with 2 forks after it is done cooking, then return to crockpot and stir around in the extra sauce for some delicious flavor! ;)

  7. Amanda says:

    I just made this and it’s pretty delicious! They’re really juicy. I used the same brand of BBQ sauce (it’s my fav) but in the brown sugar flavor.
    For those wondering about making it pulled chicken it would probably work pretty well. I cooked it about 45 minutes after draining and adding the sauce mixture just because I was tied up with something else until then. When I tried to pick up one of the smaller breasts with a fork it practically fell apart. The bigger ones didn’t do this as much so maybe if it cooked a tad longer or on low for a bit.
    Thanks for the easy, yummy recipe! I’ll definitely be trying some of the others.
