bbq chicken sandwiches

I stand firm by my beliefs that the crock pot is the world’s greatest invention. You’d have to be a real doofus to mess something up in there and better than that, it doesn’t heat your whole apartment up when it is a bajillion degrees outside. Consequently, we’ve been eating a lot of chicken tacos. This is mostly due to the fact that I’m a creature of habit but mostly lazy.

But then one day, I thought…hmmm how about I dump this here chicken into this here crock pot with a bottle of BBQ sauce. And this recipe was born.

Nope, that isn’t coleslaw because my boyfriend hates it, so I was forced into being creative. Instead, I made a chopped wedge salad and put that on top. I highly recommend this because it was really easy and tasty.

BBQ Chicken Sandwiches
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (thawed)
1 bottle BBQ sauce (this goes without saying that mine was organic)
Salt & Pepper for good measure
Brioche Buns (don’t be a loser)

Set the crock to high for one hour and then down to low for about 4-5 hours. Once that is done continue making the…

Chopped Wedge Salad
1 head romaine thinly sliced
5 plum tomatoes
5 slices of bacon
Blue Cheese
Heavy cream (we’re doing it up)

Chop all ingredients and throw into a mixing bowl. I used this recipe for the dressing and it was amazing. Toss with dressing. Toast your buns because it’s better that way. You can add more BBQ sauce or use the dressing on the buns, whatever floats your boat. Pile on some chicken and some of the salad. Ta freaking da!

    YUMM! And I am a DOOFUS, I’ve cooked something that tasted like ass in a crock-pot! In my defense i was cooking something i never really watched my exes mom cook, just kinda tried off vague memories – it was horrible!

    Any meal that can cook itself while you are working is a winner in my book. I had never thought about replacing coleslaw with salad before, but it looks good.

    I confess. I have no idea how to use a crock pot. Pinterest makes me want to know how and this does even more so, but nope don’t get ‘em.
