During the winter months, I seriously love breaking out my slow cooker to make super-easy dinners for my family. While one of our go-to meals is chili, it can certainly become routine and boring, to say the least.

But in this recipe, I made a chicken-based chili and went nontraditional in the flavor department.

Rather than using the typical chili flavors, I made this recipe even tastier by adding my favorite barbecue sauce. This chili is lip-smacking good and even freezes well if you have any leftovers.

Serve it up for dinner or for an easy game day party dish.
