BBQ Chicken Baked Potatoes

Prep Time 15 min
Yield 10 servings


  • 4-1/2 pounds bone-in chicken breast halves, skin removed
  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 1 large red onion, sliced into thick rings
  • 1 bottle (18 ounces) honey barbecue sauce
  • 1 cup Italian salad dressing
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons liquid smoke, optional
  • 10 medium potatoes, baked
  • Optional: Crumbled blue cheese and chopped green onions


  1. Place chicken in a greased 5- or 6-qt. slow cooker; sprinkle with garlic powder and top with onion. Combine the barbecue sauce, salad dressing, brown sugar, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce and, if desired, liquid smoke; pour over chicken.
  2. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or until chicken is tender.
  3. When cool enough to handle, remove chicken from bones; discard bones and onion. Skim fat from cooking juices.
