Crock Pot Barbecue Chicken is a simple weeknight meal!

I’m not a big barbecue chicken fan, but this blend of vegetables and chicken with the cornbread is rather addicting. Because it’s such an easy recipe, that makes me like it even more!

Serve this simple Crock Pot Barbecue Chicken and cornbread with a salad for a fast and easy comforting meal. The chicken turns out very moist and it’s hard to stop eating. Even my kids like it! That’s kind of a miracle these days. ha!

Do you have to use sweet potatoes?

This recipe calls for sweet potatoes, but you certainly can switch them out with any other type of potato. I like sweet potatoes best as they are not only healthy, but compliment the sweetness of the barbecue flavor.

I’m always looking for ways to hide healthy sweet potatoes into my meals for the kids. They are full of vitamins, but if I told my kids I was cooking them, there is no way they would eat a sweet potato! This recipe certainly does the trick if you mash the potatoes. Your kids will never know!
