CROCKPOT BARBECUED CHICKEN – Melinda B, Odessa
1 chicken cut up (I used 12 drumsticks) skin removed
1 cup ketchup
3/4 cup brown sugar
3 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
Place chicken in a crockpot. Mix other ingredients in a bowl and pour over chicken. Cook 4 hours on high or 8 on low (when I make this it does not take this long at all! I had it in one morning at 8 am on low and by noon it was well cooked )….maybe crockpots vary in hotness !
