Coca-cola BBQ Chicken


In the summer, I have a my own tried and true barbecue recipe and rub. But during the winter, when I need to to cheat and cook crockpot style? This pinterest recipe seemed too good to be true. We like to serve our bbq with mashed potatoes, but you could do a lot with the recipe – dress it down as a sandwich or make it a more formal meal.


Simplicity– VERY easy to put together. You could cheat even more and use rotisserie chicken

Flavor – Sweet and pleasant. Kids will enjoy it.

Notes – It didn’t seem to make a whole lot, so if you are cooking for more than four, make sure to double the recipe.

If you enjoy this recipe, they have endless varieties on the same theme involving wings and chicken at:

What You’ll Need:

  • Crockpot
  • 4 – 5 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts, thawed
  • One 18 oz. Bottle Sweet Baby Ray’s Cola-Q Barbecue Sauce  {if you can’t find Cola-Q at your store, you can substitute Original Sweet Baby Ray’s Sauce}
  • 1/2 Can Coca-Cola {approx. 6 oz.}


Seriously, that’s it for ingredients.

What You’ll Do:

  • Cook chicken in crockpot on high for 3 hours {covered}
  • After 3 hours, drain juices from crockpot
  • Mix together BBQ Sauce and Coca-Cola
  • Pour mixture over chicken, and cook on high for 30 more minutes {covered}

It’s Only October 4?

Lately, I have been struggling with juggling two jobs, parenthood and running a home. One of the biggest issues I have been dealing with is not feeling like cooking a hot meal after coming home from job number one and two. Weekends are a desparate attempt to take care of the house, laundry, garden and any other issues that have come up.

For sanity’s sake, I decided to start cooking several meals over the weekend in the crockpot, because it frees me up to do what I want on the weekend but work ahead. Another bonus is that it is giving me time to experiment with the 56,000 (give or take) crockpot recipes I have pinned on Pinterest.

When I find good recipes or sites, I will let you know:)
