BBQ Chicken


This is an awesome low-fat shredded bbq chicken recipe. It comes from Hungry Girl's 1-2-3 : The Easiest, Most Delicious, Guilt-Free Recipes on the Planet. AWESOME BOOK!

We decided to serve these as wraps.... we used some flax tortillas. I ate the left overs as a lettuce wrap (since I doubled the recipe), and that was SUPER yum! I love my slow cooker!

Slow Cookin' BBQ Chicken

1 cup canned tomato sauce
1/2 cup ketchup
2 Tbsp plus 2 tsp brown sugar (not packed)
2 Tbsp plus 2 tsp cider vinegar
2 tsp garlic powder (I used fresh garlic)
1 1/2 pounds raw boneless skinless lean chicken breasts, halved

Place all ingredients except chicken in the crock pot. Stir until mixed. Add chicken and coat well in sauce.

Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours or on low for 7-8 hours, until chicken is fully cooked.

Remove chicken and place in a bowl. Shred each piece using two forks. Put back in crockpot and mix back in sauce.

*This was a new favourite in our house... I think it'd be great served over a salad in the summer months.
