Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken

Here’s an easy weeknight meal idea that you can throw in the slow cooker – delicious shredded BBQ chicken using your favorite brand of root beer and BBQ sauce! This winning 3-ingredient recipe can also be made with a pork roast instead for a yummy pulled pork meal.

Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken

(Adapted from The Frugal Girls)


4 chicken breasts
1/2 bottle or can of root beer (full sugar not diet) – you can use Coke or Dr. Pepper if you prefer
18 oz. bottle of BBQ sauce, I used Stubbs
1/4 Tsp Salt
1/4 Tsp Pepper

How to make root beer bbq chicken sandwiches Hip2SaveDirections:

Place chicken breasts and root beer in a slow cooker and cook for about 3 hours on high. Shred and drain most of the liquid. Leave a little so chicken doesn’t get dry. Add salt & pepper. Pour in a bottle of BBQ sauce and let cook another 15-20 minutes in slow cooker. Serve on rolls. I sometimes add avocado or even saute onion to serve on the sandwich. Yum!
This is definitely one of those easy meals the entire family eats without any complaints and that makes this busy mom very happy! 🙂

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
