Mom’s Running On Empty Chicken

Printable Version

For those times when you just don’t have the energy to cook!


  • 1 whole Chicken
  • 1 bottle (18 ounces) BBQ Sauce (I use Cattleman’s Mississippi Honey BBQ Sauce)
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • 3 shakes Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • squirt of Lemon Juice
  • Sprinkling of Paprika


  1. Wash and pat dry chicken and place the chicken legs up in slow cooker.
  2. Combine all remaining ingredients in a small to medium bowl.
  3. Poor sauce over and inside chicken.  Cook for 8 to 10 hours on low or 4 to 6 on high.
  4. When it is about an hour and half a way from being done I spinkle paprika over the top.
  5. The meat falls easily off the bone.  Poor the sauce over rice or mashed potatoes.
