As soon as I saw this recipe from Lissaloo at One Step At A Time, I knew I had to make it. It was far too simple not to make it, it only has 2 ingredients and it's made in a crockpot! It takes quite a bit of time to cook so you need to plan ahead, but it can be done over night and ready for lunch the next day.
It was delicious and made a ton! I made this with 4 chicken breasts because I wanted leftovers and we ended up eating it for a couple days afterwards. I would allot 1/2 a breast per person per meal next time. This was clearly enough for 8 people to have sandwiches! And that's the beauty of this recipe, it can feed a lot or a little without much effort.
We ate ours on homemade hamburger buns and when I ran out we ate them on toasted sesame seed buns, with potato salad and pickles. Yum!
- 4 frozen chicken breasts (boneless skinless)
- 1- 18 oz. bottle bbq sauce (or more if desired)
Put chicken in crockpot and cover with bbq sauce. Cook on low for several hours. I cooked mine about 10 hours, Lissaloo lets hers cook for 12, overnight. Just cook until tender and shreddable otherwise it will be dry. 8 hours should be enough, but I let mine go longer because my low setting doesn't work very well.
Take chicken out of pot and let cool just a bit before shredding. With two forks pull chicken apart and return back to crockpot to simmer for a couple more hours.
Sandwich between two pieces of bread or a bun and enjoy!
NOTE: Your chicken will only be as good as your sauce so use your favorite BBQ sauce. If you like it peppery add pepper or sweet, add a little honey. But be cautious when adding salt the sauce is ually loaded with it.
Lissaloo uses 1-2 bottles of sauce per 5 breasts. Adjust accordingly.
