Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches in the Crock Pot

16 Aug

Ingredients:

Servings: 4-6

1 -2 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
1 (18 ounce) jar of your favorite barbecue sauce (I love K.C. Masterpiece!)
1 medium sweet onion,
 sliced 4 -6 hamburger buns

Directions: 

1. Remove all visible fat from the chicken and toss it in the crock pot.
2. Place the onion slices on top of the chicken.
3. Pour the barbecue sauce over top.
4. You may not need the entire jar, just enough to cover the chicken.
5. Cook it on LOW for 8 hours or until the chicken is nice and tender.
6. Shred the chicken with a fork and knife; scoop the mixture onto the bottom buns and top it with the top buns.
7. Or, if you’re like my dad, you might prefer leaving the breasts whole and eating it that way.
8. Voila!
9. An easy weeknight meal that doesn’t heat up your kitchen in the summertime!
10. I love this with potato chips and a carrot and raisin salad.

Crockpot Chicken Tacos

13 Aug

Crockpot Chicken Tacos
Serves: ~12 people

1 envelope Taco Seasoning (I use Old El Paso Reduced Sodium)
6 pieces Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
1 16-ounce jar Salsa (I switch between brands, but Newman’s Own is my favorite)

Dump everything into a crock pot and give it a little stir to blend the seasoning with the salsa. You do not need to add any water to the taco seasoning. Cook on high for 4 to 6 hours or on low for 6 to 8 hours. When done, the chicken should shred easily when stirred with a fork.

For tacos, serve the chicken with soft flour tortillas, guacamole, lettuce, shredded cheese and/or sour cream. This is very versatile and can be used for enchiladas, nachos, tostadas, quesadillas, etc.
