Zesty chicken bbq


I found this recipe on allrecipes.com. It caught my attention because it seemed easy to throw together, but also seemed like it would have a very interesting taste. All of the reviews said they were a little hesitant about mixing Italian dressing with bbq sauce (and so was I) but they all said it turned out great. I have to agree!

The first night, we shredded the chicken and put it on sandwich buns. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture. I know, I know … But with leftovers the next night, we made this bbq chicken pizza. It was delicious both ways!


6 chicken breast halves
12 ounce bottle bbq sauce
1/2 cup Italian salad dessing
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce

Place chicken breasts in crockpot. I sprinkled them with garlic powder, but that obviously is optional. In a bowl, mix bbq sauce, Italian dressing, brown sugar, and Worcestershire sauce until combined. Pour over chicken.

Cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 3-4.
