Slow Cooked Shredded Barbecued Chicken Recipe
  • Spray lining of slow cooker with non stick cooking spray. Layer 2/3 of onion slices and all garlic slices in bottom. Layer the split chicken breasts and top with additional onion slices (separate them, if preferred).
  • In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients and pour over chicken. Lift the breasts to allow some of the sauce to escape to the bottom of the slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 7 hours.
  • Shred chicken. Return chicken to slow cooker to reheat.
  • Serve on bun.

    *Add more ketchup, if you prefer a thicker sauce.
