Slow Cooker BBQ Shredded Chicken

This last Super Bowl Sunday I prepared these yummy Slow Cooker BBQ Shredded Chicken Sandwiches topped with a Avocado and Tomatillo Slaw. They were definitely the hit of the show! I am so excited to share this recipe with you so let's get started!

Crock Pot BBQ Shredded Chicken

Ingredients List:
4 larger chicken breast
1 1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/2 cup water
1 TBS vegetable oil
1 TBS whole grain mustard
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp all spice
1/8 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (or to taste)
2 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
3 lemon slices
BBQ sauce makes 2 1/2 cups.

Mix all ingredients (excluding the chicken) in a bowl. Add chicken breast to the slow cooker and pour your desired amount of BBQ sauce over the chicken and then add lemon slices.  If you want a bolder flavor add more and for a mild flavor add less BBQ sauce. Cook on high for 4 hours.

You can shred the chicken right in your slow cooker. The chicken is so tender all you need is a butter knife and fork. Mix the chicken with the sauce and get ready to make your sandwich.
