Any Summer day can be made better with some barbeque chicken, especially a crazy busy Summer day.
I have been a little lax in the cooking department this Summer. We have been ultra busy and all of the sudden the end of the day is there and then BAM my kids start saying they are hungry and before I know it that sneaky little devil dinnertime has snuck on up me.
On the days where I anticipate the impending need for evening nourishment, I bring out the slow cooker and start making dinner before the crazy descends.
Some slow cooker Barbeque Chicken seemed the perfect answer for a busy Summer day.
These little sliders are so scrumptious.
Plus they were very little trouble to whip out.
Cook the chicken slowly and all day long with little to no supervision.
Then shred it up. Soak it up in some sauce. Serve on a roll. Slather in more sauce.
And now it is eating time.
Another Slow Cooker Saturday success. Woot! Woot!
Slow Cooker Shredded Barbeque Sauce
adapted from America's Test Kitchen
3 chicken breasts
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 cups brown sugar barbeque sauce (your favorite brand)
Mix the chili powder, paprika, brown sugar, salt, cayenne pepper, and pepper in a small bowl. Rub the mixture evenly over the chicken and then put the chicken in the slow cooker. Pour 1/2 cup of the barbeque sauce over the chicken. Cook on low for 4-6 hours until chicken is done.
Take the chicken out and shred and set aside. Skim the fat off the leftover liquid. Mix 1 cup of the liquid with the 1 cup of barbeque sauce. Toss the chicken with the mixture.
Serve on slider rolls.
