recipe: looking: crockpot shredded chicken

columbusgardenerSeptember 16, 2007

A co worker of mine always made a shredded chicken sandwich for our 1st pot luck of the school year. She fell ill over the summer and has been getting back her health and will not be able to attend. I would like to try and make it, but I cannot find a recipe and her daughter tells me everything she cooked was in her head.

what she did tell me is its chicken, broth, salt & pepper and two rolls of RITZ crackers (crushed) and kept heated in a roater or crockpot...

Anyone have any ideas??

Did it have a creamed soup as an ingredient?

Pulled Chicken Sandwiches (Crock Pot) Recipe
A personal take on a recipe from the "Slow Cooker Bible" and based on recipes typical of North Carolina styled BBQ. The sauce is tangy and flavorful but not spicy as the amount of hot sauce is just enough to balance the sweetness of the ketchup. Certainly mild enough to serve to kids. It you want more zing, add more tabasco or a chopped chipotle pepper en adobo. (If your crock pot is large enough, this easily doubles and the leftovers can be frozen.)
4 servings
6¼ hours 10 min prep
1 medium onion, thinly sliced or 1/2 large onion, thinly sliced
3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 tablespoons molasses
1 tablespoon yellow mustard
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
1 pinch salt

Cut the onion in half and slice into thin half rings. Line the bottom of the crock pot with the onions.
Trim the chicken breasts and place on top of the bed of onions.
Mix all of the sauce ingredients together and pour on top of the chicken covering completely. (I make the sauce the night before so that it is a simple dump and run in the morning.)
Cook for 6 hours on low setting. The sauce thickens and turns into a dark rich brown during cooking. At the same time the onions dissolve into the sauce.
When the chicken is falling apart tender, take two forks and shred the chicken.
Serve on top of split buns. I like mine toasted so they hold up better to the weight of the shredded chicken.
Suggested sides include baked beans, corn on the cob, coleslaw or cucumber salad.
