  1. Congratulations on Creating With the Starts! I was so excited for you when the participant list came out. 😉 So many talented bloggers out there.

    Thanks for sharing this quick and easy recipe (the best kind!). I am trying it tomorrow and wanted to let you know it was featured yesterday on my weekend reflections!

    1. There are SO many talented bloggers in the competition! How’d the chicken turn out?

  2. Did you thaw the chicken first? Or just throw it into the crock pot frozen? I hope it’s the latter, that would make this recipe shoot to the top of my list of things to try! Thank you! 🙂

  3. I did make the bbq pulled chicken I had everything beside the chicken broth didnt know i need it to after i got home from shopping. It was so good i think when i do it next i may keep it in for longer the 4 hrs and may do less chicken since it made so much but we have left overs

    1. Hi Linda,

      There is no broth in this recipe, just the three ingredients. 🙂 We always have a lot of leftovers when it’s just the five of us too. But it barely goes around when we have small group or family over!
