Slow Cooker Peach BBQ Chicken

The Peach BBQ Sauce recipe makes about 3 cups of sauce so you’ll have plenty left over for another recipe. The sauce takes just 15 minutes to prepare and once it’s made, you just have to toss it in the slow cooker with a few chicken breasts and you’re just 6 easy hours from a satisfying, family-friendly meal.

  • 2 Tbsp. avocado oil mayonnaise (such as Primal Kitchen Mayo)
  • 2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar

  8. Combine all slaw ingredients in a medium bowl and toss well to coat. Serve with shredded chicken.
