Slow Cooker Dr Pepper® BBQ Chicken Recipe
We’re not big tailgaters but we’re huge homegaters! That means we like to celebrate our teams from the comfort of our home. One of the best things we do for ourselves when it comes to game day is to keep it simple! You know what I mean, right? Of course. Don’t spend all your time in the kitchen because the big TV is in the other room. Well, that’s how it is here anyway. So, I’ve got a great recipe that everyone will ADORE!
Remember how I went to Kroger and got ready for this game? Well, you can pick up all of these simple ingredients there. Don’t forget the Dr Pepper®! It’s what makes this recipe stand up and cheer! While you’re there grab some Keebler® Town House® Crackers, Club® Crackers, and Cheez-It® Crackers to munch on too. Those are great choices for a game day platter!
This is sooo simple! Thaw your chicken ahead of time. Add it to the slow cooker. Stir up these simple ingredients along with 12 ounces of Dr Pepper® and pour them over the chicken. Let it cook for about six hours and voila! You’ve got a great meal!

This is going to be a huge hit with everyone. Trust me. We had some leftovers and I thought my youngest son was going to have a fit because my older one didn’t get all of the leftovers out of the crock pot. He left enough in there to make another sandwich. So, we have a winner! I’ll be making this Dr Pepper® BBQ Chicken recipe again for sure! Now, back to the game.
