Southern Style Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken Sandwiches

I don't know about where y'all live, but it has been so hot and humid around D.C. lately. On days with temperatures above 90 degrees and air thick as water, I hardly want to eat, much less turn on the oven. My slow cooker and making salads or cold meals are a life saver on scorching spring and summer days.

One of my favorite recipes to make in the slow cooker is BBQ chicken. We sure love our BBQ in the South. Depending on which southern state you visit, you can get all different sorts of BBQ. In NC, we prefer vinegar based BBQ sauce, which is what I used in this Southern Style Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken Sandwich recipe. And just because you don't turn on your oven doesn't mean you have to sacrifice flavor. Although this BBQ chicken is made in a slow cooker, it is just as tender, flavorful, and juicy as the BBQ pork or chicken that is cooked low and slow on the grill.


So, if you are experiencing scorching hot days like me, give your oven a break and grab your slow cooker. These sandwiches are a cinch to make and will keep your kitchen cool and family happy.

  1. BBQ sandwiches are one of our favorite meals, and I love that you can do it in the slow cooker! My Dad is from NC so we grew up eating the vinegary type sauce and just adore it. I think I could smother anything in it. :)
