If you didn't already know, I grew up in the south. I love BBQ, grits, Cheerwine, and lots of Southern delicacies. Now that I live in New England, the BBQ here is just not the same. My favorite is when the meat is sweet, yet tangy at the same time. There's nothing like bringing the south to the north and making your taste buds happy.
I like to use my crockpot all year round and create all sorts of delicious meals for my family. Since I'm a stay-at-home mom, I don't always have all the time in the world to make elaborate meals. The crockpot is such a time saver! What would I do without it?
If you're a BBQ lover, I have the best recipe for you. It's so easy and will instantly become a family favorite.
1 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce
2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup zesty Italian dressing
1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
Mix together in a bowl and pour on top of chicken breasts in the crockpot. Cook on high for 3-4 hours. Once time is up, you can shred the meat and put it back in the crockpot to soak up the remaining sauce for about 10 minutes. Don't spend time shredding the chicken with a fork, it's time consuming and your hands will end up hurting. To speed up the process, shred the meat in an electric mixer. It'll be done in a few seconds.
You'll be left with delicious and tender shredded chicken that will have the most amazing flavor. Feel free to top the sandwiches with coleslaw and anything else you like. I tend to like mine on the plain side with just a little more BBQ sauce on top. Pair the sandwich with baked beans and chips for the ultimate meal that's not only delicious but easy too!
