Meet the Sullivans: Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken Sandwiches

Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken Sandwiches

Honestly, I'm not even sure if I can justifiably call this a "recipe" because it's ingredients list only includes barbecue sauce, chicken and dinner rolls, but we liked it and IT WAS SO EASY, so easy in fact that I am not even going to include a printer-friendly version for you because I know you're all smart enough to remember it on your own. It's making a repeat appearance again this week on our menu, which rarely ever happens --that's how much we liked it.
 Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken Sandwiches

1 pound boneless skinless chicken thighs
1/2 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 bottle of Jack Daniel's barbecue sauce (or whatever your favorite BBQ sauce is)
Hawaiian sweet rolls or dinner rolls for serving

Place frozen chicken breasts and thighs in the slow cooker. Cover the chicken with barbecue sauce using almost the entire bottle. I left a little in the bottle to mix in with the chicken after it had cooked so it would be really moist. Cook on low for about 8 hours or on high for about 4. When I came home from work it was all done. I transferred the chicken to a bowl, added a little extra barbecue sauce and used two forks to pull the chicken apart. It pulled apart really easily. 

Serve on rolls with a side salad, or carrots or sweet potato fries, or whatever you like! Enjoy :)
