Who’s ready for a delicious, easy dinner recipe? If you’re not…um…quit reading? 🙂 I found these Crock-Pot BBQ Chicken Sandwiches months ago, and I have since made them my own with a few modifications. They have quickly become one of my go-to dinner options. Read on for the recipe!
There are only a few ingredients in this recipe: chicken breasts, garlic powder, vinegar, brown sugar, and BBQ sauce. I always use Sweet Baby Ray’s Barbecue Sauce because I can find it anywhere, it’s inexpensive, and most importantly, it’s DELICIOUS. They have several varieties, but the original is definitely the best.
Another “ingredient” I use is a Reynolds Slow Cooker liner. These can be found by the Ziploc bags at the grocery store, and they make cleaning up the Crock-Pot a cinch! No more scrubbing and scraping and taking up half of your dishwasher after each Crock-Pot meal! They’re awesome, and I would totally add them to your routine when using your slow cooker.
Once you’ve assembled your ingredients, toss everything but the chicken in your lined slow cooker. Mix the ingredients together well, add in your chicken breasts, and coat them with the sauce.
Cook the chicken on low for 4-6 hours until it is thoroughly cooked and can be easily shredded with a fork.
Once your chicken is shredded, you can serve it a number of different ways. My favorite is to spoon it onto some lightly toasted buns and serve it with my simple homemade baked fries.
I know this meal is a hit because Louis always asks for seconds when I make it! Three chicken breasts usually make enough meat for about six to eight sandwiches, depending on how much chicken you put on each one. It’s great because it is so easy to make, and it typically lasts us for two meals!
I hope you enjoy these sandwiches as much as we do! Feel free to pin or print the recipe below, and let me know if you give it a try!
