BBQ Pulled Chicken Sandwiches

printed from melskitchencafe.com

*Serves 6

1 small to medium yellow onion, thinly sliced into half moons

2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, fresh or frozen

1 cup ketchup

2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

2 tablespoons molasses

1 teaspoon onion powder

1 teaspoon cumin

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce

1/2 teaspoon salt

Whole wheat hamburger buns or rolls (I used this French Bread roll recipe, subbing whole wheat for the white flour)

Scatter the onions on the bottom of a slow cooker. Place chicken on top of the onions.

In a medium bowl, combine the ketchup, vinegar, mustard, molasses, onion powder, cumin, garlic powder, Tabasco and salt. Pour the sauce over the chicken. Cover the slow cooker and cook on low until the chicken is fork-tender and the sauce has thickened slightly, about 5-6 hours (add an additional hour if using frozen chicken breasts).

Remove the chicken from the slow cooker and shred the meat. Return it back to the slow cooker, mixing it with the sauce. Serve the chicken hot on whole wheat rolls, if desired.
