Peach Barbeque Chicken

Peach Barbeque Chicken

Peach barbeque chicken has become a favorite quick weeknight meal for my family. The crockpot is a lifesaver when I am working during the week. I can throw all the ingredients in before I leave, and dinner is made when I get home.

I use frozen chicken thighs or breasts. Depending on what I have available in the freezer or fresh. I have also used apricot jam and orange marmalade in a pinch.  I discovered Duke’s barbeque sauce, which I use most often. However, as a mama knows, add whatever you have on hand!

A slow cooker can be a lifesaver for homemakers at any stage of life. Busyness comes in all forms or just times when you want a good meal but don’t have the energy to spend the time preparing it. I keep two sizes of slow cookers and use both regularly. Visit my recommendations for quick meal preparation.


Peachy Barbeque Chicken


  • 2 Pounds Chicken thighs (approximately 6)
  • 1/2 Cup Peach preserves or jam
  • 1/2 Cup BBQ sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Place chicken breast in slow cooker crockpot. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • In small bowl, combine peach preserves and barbecue sauce.
  • Pour all peach barbecue glaze all over the chicken. Cook on low heat for 4 hours or until temperature reaches 165 degrees.
  • Shred chicken with forks and enjoy!

Steamed broccoli or brussel sprouts is what I add as a vegetable. Rice or potatoes goes well with the peach barbeque chicken. Try my skillet bread if you have a little more time. This recipe is perfect for the busy mom. I call this made from scratch at its best when the week turns to chaos. I know I can get a good hearty meal on the table with little preparation and time in the kitchen.

A good barbeque dish in Florida is worth its weight in gold. I love this one because I don’t have to fire up the grill and sweat my entire daily water intake while cooking it. Enjoy!
