BBQ Root Beer Chicken (Gluten Free!)

My mother is from North Carolina, so I’m born and bred to LOVE BBQ! Of course, nothing compares to being at a drive-in diner in the South and getting pulled pork BBQ sandwiches with some cole slaw on the side or piling it on top of your sandwich.

However, I do my best to try and recreate this loving feelin’ at home. πŸ™‚

I found this recipe on Pinterest (surprise, surprise!) and wanted to give it a go because it uses two ingredients I really like: Root Beer and BBQ sauce. I do tend to steer clear of soft drinks, as a general rule, but using it in this recipe only adds to the flavor of your meal.

You can throw this in a crockpot or make it in your oven..either way it’s truly all about the BBQ Sauce! This recipe uses the crock pot, so get out the slow-cooker and let’s do this!

Ingredients:

  • 4-5 Chicken breasts (thawed)
  • Sweet Baby Ray’s Honey Barbecue Sauce
  • 6 oz. Root Beer (I used A&W)
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of pepper

Throw the chicken breasts, thawed, into the crockpot for three hours on high. Drain juices out when time is up, then add Root Beer, 18 oz of BBQ sauce, salt and pepper. Cook for another 30 minutes in the crock pot, then voila!

Dinner is served…
