Pulled Chicken BBQ Sandwiches

So, turns out that BBQ chicken I had in the crockpot yesterday.....well, it is absolutely, positively DELICIOUS!!!! I told you I'd share the recipe if it was worthy, so here ya go!!

After a couple pictures to make you drool all over your keyboard........

Alright, here's the recipe:

Pulled Chicken BBQ Sandwiches

Ingredients: (the original recipe called for 6 frozen breasts, but there's only 2 of us, and Hudson, who ate a tiny bit, so I halved it. I used fresh chicken, too.)

3 raw boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Half of a 12oz bottle barbecue sauce
1/4 cup Italian dressing
1/8 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce


Place chicken in crockpot. I realize that's a brand, and it's actually called a "slow-cooker", but I call them all crockpots. 

Mix last 4 ingredients together, then pour over chicken.

Let cook on low for about 4 hours, then shred chicken. Mine fell apart and shredded beautifully!!

Cook for another hour or so, then drop to warm for another hour or so. 

I started mine earlier in the morning, so I kept it on low for a couple hours, 'cause we weren't ready to eat it. It didn't get dry and was super moist, tender, and flavorful. I stirred it occasionally, to redistribute the juices and sauce.

We had sandwiches, but this could easily be put in a salad, or served alone. It had a ton of flavor and was very moist.  It was so easy, and I might just make it a weekly dinner!! Depending on what kind of BBQ sauce and dressing you use, you can make this even more healthy than it already is. I used Sweet Baby Ray's Original BBQ Sauce (my favorite), Fat-free Italian dressing, and low-sodium Worcestershire sauce.

YUM YUM!!! Hope you like it!!

Have a wonderful weekend!!!!!
