BBQ Crockpot Chicken

This chicken dish turns out nicely - and is like a saucy barbecued chicken. It's easy to throw together in the morning, and the chicken falls of the bone by the time it's done. I also made a broccoli salad - sort of like the one at Claim Jumper, but with a few variations. Then, since both dishes were sweet, we needed something not sweet with them, so I made turnip greens.

2-3 pounds chicken pieces (I used 3 chicken breasts)
1 can whole-berry cranberry sauce
1 c diced celery
1/2 c diced onion
1 t salt
1/2 t pepper
1 c barbecue sauce (I used Bullseye)

Place chicken pieces in crockpot. Combine remaining ingredients and pour over chicken. Cook on low 7-8 hours.
