We are big fans of shredded BBQ Chicken made in the crockpot. Even one of the first blog posts I ever did was sharing our love for it here! Now, I’m excited to introduce you to a new version of the easiest and best Crockpot BBQ Chicken in the Express Crock!
Directions for slow cooker or pressure cooker mode will be included down below on the printable recipe card!
I’ve seen a different recipe floating around for years on Pinterest and finally decided to try it to see how it stacks up against our go to simplistic Crockpot Easy BBQ Chicken recipe. I’m so glad I did, because after a taste test, Fred chose this as his new favorite!
The only difference is a few ingredients added into the BBQ sauce that compliment it so much. With the addition of Italian dressing, brown sugar and Worcestershire, it is zesty, savory and will have you going back for seconds. This truly is the best recipe for BBQ shredded chicken out there! Try both of my recipes and let me know what you think!
