When you think of BBQ, many think it is unhealthy because of the meat, the high sodium content, and the sugar from the sauce. I have been making this recipe for the easiest crock pot chicken bbq over the past few years, and health-ified it!
I made the chicken in a crock pot, added about 1/2 a bottle of Williamson Brothers Chipotle BBQ sauce (only 4 g sugar per serving!), a few splashes of Italian dressing, 1-2 spoonfuls of brown sugar, and a few splashes of Worcestershire sauce.
Then, I let it cook for about 5-6 hours on low.
So, this makes this BBQ fairly healthy. The meat is very lean (made from chicken breasts) and the sugar is reduced. The only negative is that the sodium is still significant. I made sure not to add any extra salt.
I put my BBQ on top of this sprouted bagel half:
These bagels are made by French Meadow Bakery (I found them in my local Kroger). I love them–they remind me of an Ezekiel style bread. Much healthier than any bagel you can get at restaurants. Plus, they have about 5 to 10 grams of fiber per bagel!
Anyway, we also had a side of grilled asparagus (even though they are not really in season right now… just wanted to eat the little stalks!).
