2 large chicken breasts (or more depending on how many people you are cooking for, this amount made enough for 3 people with a little leftover)
1 bottle Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce
2 tbsp white vinegar
Fresh sliced bread
Brown Sugar & Crushed Red Pepper to taste, PLEASE be careful when doing this. If you enjoy more sweet BBQ then add about 1tbsp of brown sugar, but NO more, you don’t want overly sweet BBQ. If you enjoy more spicy BBQ then add crushed red pepper but no more than half a tbsp. If you taste it once it’s cooked and decide it needs more spice then you can add more. Just remember you can always add more but you can never take it away. If you like both (like I do) then simply add a few shakes of crushed red pepper and half a tbsp of brown sugar.
Slice the chicken breast horizontally as shown below. This helps the chicken cook faster, cook more evenly, and helps it shred easier when in the crock pot.
Place the chicken in the crock pot on high, along with the entire bottle of Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce, vinegar, and your optional crushed red pepper and brown sugar. Allow the chicken to cook for 5 hours on high heat. Take a fork and a knife and shred the chicken apart inside the crock pot. Serve on a freshly sliced bun and enjoy!
Any type of flour tortilla, I used whole wheat pocket pita’s
Shredded mozzarella or any type of shredded cheese you have available
I added a little bit of chopped onion on mine as well
Preheat over to 400 degrees. Take a baking sheet and place the pita on it. Top the pita with the leftover BBQ chicken and chopped onions. Sprinkle your desired amount of cheese on top of the chicken. Heat in the oven for 15 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
This BBQ chicken is a full proof recipe and your husband/boyfriend will love that you prepared some savory BBQ. I like to pair the BBQ with mashed potatoes and usually some type of vegetable such as corn or coleslaw. On top of that the BBQ pizza that I decided to make with the little bit of leftovers was absolutely delicious! Equally as delicious as the original meal. I don’t know about you guys but I get tired of eating the same type of food as leftovers and like to try to make something different with it and this pizza was an absolute slam dunk!
Comment below, I would love to hear your feedback and/or modifications you made to the recipe.
