Easy, Crock-Pot Barbecue Chicken Breasts

Of all the sauces out there, it seems everyone likes barbecue sauce! I’ve doctored up a bottle by adding some tomato sauce, onions, and Worcestershire sauce. This sauce is wonderful and perfect over chicken.  Serve with baked or mashed potatoes and some kind of vegetable and you’re good to go! Each skinny serving has 231 calories and 3 grams of fat.

Helpful Tips About this Recipe

Makes 6 servings (each serving 1 chicken breast and ¼ cup sauce)

There will be Leftover Sauce

The skinny facts were calculated based on using only ½ the sauce. This recipe uses all the sauce to cook the chicken in the crock-pot. Once cooked, you only use ½ of it to serve over the 6 chicken breasts. There will be 1½ cups leftover. It’s yummy to use some of this extra sauce to mash into a baked potato over drizzle rice.

Sweet Baby Ray Original sauce and Lea & Perrins are both gluten-free! Be sure to choose a gluten-free can of tomato sauce.
