Slow Cooker Turkey BBQ

Slow Cooker Turkey BBQ
My friend and neighbor, Nicole Rodriguez, passed this super crock pot recipe on to me over 5 years ago. Since then, it has become a favorite any time of year. I have modified the original recipe to use a little less processed sugar and eliminated the highly processed Worcestershire sauce. You won’t even miss it! Don’t be intimidated by the long list, it comes together in less than 10 minutes.

    Recipe Notes

    I have made this with great success with chicken breast. My husband prefers to cut the chicken rather than shredding it before piling on a crusty roll.

    I have also made this with apricot preserves instead of apple butter when I can’t find a good quality apple butter.

    Serve in rolls with a side of steamed broccoli or other cruciferous veggie in the fall and winter and corn on the cob, green beans and baked beans in the summer.
