This crowd-pleasing recipe couldn't be easier or more delicious. It yields the flavors of summer BBQ without the commitment to the grill. Plus, it's great warm or cold so you take it to your next picnic.



*Can be made with your favorite BBQ seasoning. Or check another version of this recipe for Slow Cooker Honey Mustard Picnic Chicken.


Generously sprinkle chicken pieces with salt & pepper. Place chicken and all remaining ingredients in a slow cooker. Use a spatula (or your hands) to toss and coat all chicken pieces with sauce. Set slow cooker to low and cook for 3 to 4 hours. Chicken pieces should be very tender but not completely falling off the bone.

Remove chicken pieces from slow cooker with tongs and arrange on a large, foil-lined baking sheet. Preheat broiler. Transfer remaining liquid from slow cooker to a saucepan and simmer over medium heat, stirring, to reduce and thicken to desired consistency. Meanwhile, finish chicken pieces under the broiler for about 5 min., turning a couple of times, so the skin becomes slightly charred. Toss broiled chicken pieces with sauce just before serving and/or serve sauce on the side.

"Recently I had the opportunity to visit the store in St. Petersburg, FL. What a treat to meet those guys and be treated like one of their regulars! They were willing to break up a set for me so that I could get my Cuban Island Spice -- who does that?! So impressed with them as well."
