BBQ Chicken Sandwiches

I made these for a backyard BBQ with some friends and they were YUMMY! There are a lot of ingredients, but most of them I already had in my pantry and all of them combined make for some very flavorful BBQ chicken!

BBQ Chicken Sandwiches:
  • 4 lbs chicken breasts**
  • 12 rolls
  • 1 Tbsp canola oil
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 12 oz bottle of chili sauce
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp salt and pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Tabasco sauce (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp liquid smoke (optional)
Combine sauce ingredients together in a 4 qt. slow cooker.  Add chicken and stir to coat. Cook on low 7-8 hours. Remove chicken and pull apart. Stir back into sauce. Serve over rolls/buns.

**I used chicken breasts with bone and skin, cooked it in my slow cooker in 1 1/2 cups of chicken broth on low for 7-8 hours. Chicken with bone and skin comes out a lot more tender. When the chicken is falling off the bone, take it out and remove skin and bones (comes off very easily) and shred chicken. Discard the liquid in the slow cooker and combine the shredded chicken and sauce ingredients. Cook on low until warm.

I have made this recipe both ways and I like the second way better because the chicken is more tender.
