Tricia’s Slow Cooker Barbecue Chicken

The simplest, tastiest, feed-a-crowd barbecue I know of. Warms your tummy in the winter. Helps you avoid turning on the oven or even the grill in the summer. A frugal fast food for slow Sundays [3] year ’round.

Pair it with corn on the cob, watermelon and a side of slaw [4] and you have yourself an Independence Day meal. Of course, the children can mix up some Cookies and Cream [5] for an easy and cool dessert.
