BBQ Shredded Chicken Sandwiches

This recipe is so easy, I don't know if it even qualifies as a recipe. But it is one of our favorite simple meals, and I would feel selfish not sharing it. We came home from our vacation to an empty fridge and between unpacking, laundry and vacuuming 2 tons of sand out of the car I knew I wouldn't have time to go shopping for dinner. Que my all time favorite no-fuss meal that requires only a few ingredients and the slow cooker does all the work for you. The best part is that it tastes so good everyone will think you slaved away in the kitchen! My kids were even more excited about this than the alternative of ordering in pizza, and that's saying a lot!


3 Chicken breasts
1 cup barbecue sauce
1/2 cup chicken broth
6 buns or rolls
sliced Monterey Jack cheese

Place the chicken breasts in the crockpot and pour on broth and 3/4 cup barbecue sauce. Cook on low for 5-6 hours, shredding during the last hour and adding more sauce if necessary. Slice open bread or sub rolls and broil for 1-2 minutes, or until just lightly toasted then spoon on shredded chicken. Drizzle with remaining barbecue sauce and top with cheese slices. Broil for another minute or two, until cheese is melted.
