Tender Barbecued Chicken

Tender Barbecued Chicken

"'I'm a teacher and work most of the day, so slow-cooked meals are a great help,' relates Jacqueline Blanton from Gaffney, South Carolina. One of her family's favorites is this moist slow-simmered chicken. For an appealing look, choose a darker brown barbecue sauce."
