I am currently eliminating pork from our diet……shhhh don’t tell the kids or my husband. Alex’s one meal request this week was BBQ sandwiches and potato salad. Typically I make BBQ pork sandwiches but today I switched it up and made slow cooker BBQ chicken sandwiches. I also replaced the store-bought BBQ sauce with homemade BBQ sauce.
I crossed my fingers and served my family BBQ chicken sandwiches. I am happy to report that the BBQ switcheroo went great. Not one complaint and that is a rarity!
This is such an easy meal to make. I often make slow cooker BBQ for family gatherings because you can easily double or even triple the recipe. If I am preparing this for a large crowd I often make one pot regular and one spicy.
Here is what you need:
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, 2 cloves of garlic (minced), 1 1/4 cup ketchup (I use homemade ketchup), 2 tablespoons sucanat (you can use brown sugar), 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar, and 2 teaspoons Worcester sauce
Here is what you do:
Combine all ingredients except the chicken in a slow cooker and combine well. Ava did the mixing for me.
Add chicken, stir, and cook on high for 3-4 hours.
Remove lid and pull the chicken apart with two forks. It should shred easily.
Serve on toasted rolls or buns. Enjoy!
This dish is wonderful served with Red Skinned Potato Salad (with or without the bacon!).
