Sweet 'n Savory Slow-Cooked BBQ Chicken

The slow cooker is a home cooks best friend. It does all the work for you, creates delicious dishes, makes it appear that you've been cooking for hours, saves electricity and the possibilities are endless! I truly believe there is no con to a slow cooker except that it teases your taste buds all day, tempting your salivary glands and making your stomach grumble with hunger... but that's ok! However, don't peek as much as it is tempting to do so because it interrupts the cooking process. I experiment with slow cooker recipes and I came up with this one. It is VERY simple almost too simple, it leaves you wondering if it will be tasty. Oh it is! The chicken at the end of this slow cooking session is falling off the bone with sweet flavor. The sauce can be eaten alone, in my opinion. I could eat it drenched in rice and call it a day. Customize the recipe as much as you want from what chicken pieces you'd like to add to the amount/variety of vegetables. Serve with white rice, mashed potatoes, roasted vegetables, corn or bread. I hope you enjoy this easy 4 step recipe for your slow cooker and experiment on your own!

6-8 pieces chicken (whichever parts you like)
1 1/2 tablespoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons onion powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1 bottle of Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce or your favorite brand
1 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1/4 cup red wine
baby carrots

1. In a slow cooker, throw in all the chicken pieces.

2. Add all the ingredients except the carrots. Massage ingredients into the chicken.

3. Mix in the baby carrots.

4. Cook on low for 8 hours. Serve and enjoy!
