BBQ Chicken Sandwiches in the Slow Cooker

I could have called this 3-point BBQ Chicken, because I was literally tossing things into the slow cooker from across the kitchen.  No stirring.  No mixing.  No thawing took place.

We were in a hurry to get out the door at 7:25am.  I grabbed a bag of frozen chicken breasts and dumped them in the slow cooker.  Then I tossed other ingredients in, based on the Pulled Pork recipe.  I didn’t stir or mix, just turned the pot on and let it cook.

We came in that evening to wonderful smells, so much better than if I’d just used bottled BBQ sauce.  I quickly shredded the meat and served it on buns.  This was the meal we tried out popcorn as a side dish.  It had been a crazy, busy day and popcorn was the fastest thing I could think of.  I’m pretty sure I threw some apples and/or carrots on the table too.  Some nights you’ve just got to get everyone fed.  Can I get an amen?

Here’s what you’ll need.  No ingredient photo this time, because I was in such a hurry when I made it. [Read more…]
