Crock Pot Cranberry BBQ Chicken

This is one of our all time favorite crockpot chicken recipes. It is so easy and always turns out perfect for sandwiches, meat served as the main course, chicken nachos and more. I make this when company is coming over, too! If you need an easy chicken recipe this is it!

I first made this recipe when I had a bunch of left over fresh cranberries from Christmas. It isone of those crock pot meals that turned out even better than I had imagined.

Crockpot Cranberry BBQ Chicken


6 chicken breast
2 cups cranberries- fresh or frozen
1 large onion, sliced
2 cups wine (I used cranberry)


Add everything to crock pot. Cook on high 3 hours (or low for 5-6 hours) and then pull out chicken and shred it. Put back into crock pot and add any BBQ sauce of your choice. Cook for 1 more hour.

Kitchen Notes
We shred it to eat as BBQ sandwiches and nachos. You don't have to shred the chicken.  Serve with sides of your choice. Oh and we usually purchase Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce.

This looks like a perfect crock pot recipe, and I love the use of cranberries, which I never get tired of! But of course, you had me with BBQ!!! Delicious!! I would love if you would drop by and link up to my Super Bowl Eats and Treats Party!

I have so many cranberry recipes on my blog that I'm sure I'm starting to irritate my readers. But I pinned this to try anyway!! :)

I think this would smell like a little bit of heaven simmering away in the crock pot. It looks delicious! Hope you are having a great week end and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
Come Back Soon!

What a great crock pot idea! I bet this would work for a pork loin too. I am trying it soon....maybe tomorrow.

Hi, any suggestions for a non alcoholic batch? I always wonder what to use instead of wine....

Can you substitute cranberry sauce for the cranberries?

Susie Buetow said...

Hi Bitsybet- Oh sure I bet you can. I used fresh because that is what I had on hand. I would think 1 can would be fine. LMK how it turns out and if you take a pic, I'd love to share it with this post and give you credit!
