Recipe: Crockpot BBQ Chicken Sandwiches

This terrific Crockpot BBQ Chicken is perfect for hectic days or for watching the big game.... 2 ingredients... yes... you read that right... TWO ingredients....AND no work involved... repeat no work involved.... okay... you will need to spend about 5 minutes shredding the chicken... if that is how you want to serve it....
Another truly great thing about this recipe... make it for one or two or a whole bunch of people...
I shred it.. and serve it on rolls with coleslaw... a side of oven fries.. and you're done... TADA!
You can use any BBQ sauce of your choosing... I make mine.. it's easy.. I keep it in a mason jar in the fridge...  try mine.. make it when you have time and plan this Crockpot BBQ Chicken recipe later in the week...
If you use a commercially made BBQ sauce use a good one.. don't skimp... it will make all the difference in this dish.
Coleslaw can also be store bought or homemade... here is a great Coleslaw recipe.
I made 2 average size boneless chicken breasts and we got 4 generous sandwiches from it.  I used about 3 cups of BBQ sauce. 
The amounts really don't matter... you coat the bottom of the pot and put a generous amount of BBQ sauce on the chicken... after cooking ... you take the chicken out.. shred it with a fork and put it back in the pot... add more BBQ if you need to if the chicken is dry... and cook on low for as little as  1/2 hour or as much as 4 hours... to let the flavor blend into the chicken a bit more.

Sometimes the chicken will really release a lot of water.. especially if your making a large pot.... and it makes the BBQ sauce thin... so I then dump out all or most of it.. and add fresh BBQ sauce.
Have extra BBQ sauce to serve with.. we like to put some on the bun before putting the chicken on it.
Try it.. it's easy AND delicious!

Recipe:  Crockpot BBQ Chicken Sandwiches
All you need:
Boneless skinless chicken breasts *See TIPS
BBQ sauce *See TIPS
All you have to do:
Pour enough BBQ sauce into the bottom of the crockpot to coat it well.
Put the chicken breasts in... pour more BBQ sauce on top of the chicken to cover them.
Cook on high for 3-4 hours and 6-7 hours on low.  Remove the chicken and shred it with a fork... return it back to the pot and mix with the sauce... add more sauce if needed and cook on low for 1/2 - 1 hour.... I've done for as long as 4 hours... it allows the flavors to be absorbed.
