This is super delicious and more like BBQ sloppy joes. I suppose you can shred it less to be more chunky bbq, but I really liked the sloppy joeness of it.

The coleslaw is good but not as good on the sammich.

Time: 6-8 crockpot hours and 10 minutes prep

Effort Level: Very little

Amount: 4-6 


You need: 

  • 1 onion – chopped
  • 1 small can tomato paste
  • 1 Tbl chili powder
  • 2 tsp canola oil
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 Tbl molasses
  • 24 oz of chicken breast
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 Tbl cider vinegar
  • 2 tsps Dijon  mustard

Do this:

  1. Add everything but the vinegar and mustard to the crockpot
  2. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or until chicken is fully cooked through
  3. Shred the chicken
  4. Add the vinegar and mustard
  5. Mix and serve with your favorite buns! We chose Hawaiian bread hamburger buns…Yum
