Easy Chicken BBQ


This is easy and delicious chicken.  I cook it until it falls off the bone.  It can be eaten the next day as sandwich on a GF bun with coleslaw or your choice of crunchy vegetable topping.

2 teaspoons of salt

1 1/2 teaspoons of paprika

1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder

1/2 teaspoons of pepper

1 (3-3 1/2 lb) cut-up whole chicken I just get bone-in chicken breast and thighs…choose what you like!  To keep it healthy, skin the chicken!

1/2 cup cola I use Pepsi Throw-Back that has real sugar

1/3 cup ketchup Again, I use one with real sugar

1/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar

2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

2 tablespoons bourbon Please determine if this is GF…information on alcohol has changed over the years.  BBQ should  be fine without it.

1 lemon, sliced

Whisk together first 4 ingredients.  Sprinkle over chicken.  Coat 6 qt. slow cooker with cooking spray and carefully place chicken on bottom.

Mix cola and next 4 ingredients.  Slowly pour between chicken pieces without washing off spices.  Place lemon slices on top of chicken.

Cook on high for 5 hours or low for 6 1/2 to 7 1/2 hours. Know your slow cooker.  Mine cooks much faster.  Check temperature to make sure it is thoroughly cooked.

  Discard lemon and arrange chicken on a plate.  Cover with pan juices.

Serve with coleslaw or green salad.  Add some easy Ore Ida tater tots that are marked GF.
