HG Slow-cookin' BBQ Chicken

This slow cooked BBQ chicken is delicious.  It really tastes like something out of a popular BBQ restaurant expect with a gazillion less calories and fat.  I like to serve this in a sandwich with pickles and onions with some slaw on the side.  Yummy!  This recipe is from the Hungry Girl recipe book.

HG Slow-cookin' BBQ Chicken

1 cup canned tomato sauce

1/2 cup ketchup
2 tbsp plus 2 tsp brown sugar (I used splenda brown sugar and cut a few more calories there)
2 tbsp plus 2 tsp cider vinegar
2 tsp garlic powder
1 1/2 lbs raw boneless skinless lean chicken breasts, halved
Optional: crushed red pepper

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

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

3.  Remove all of the chicken and place it in a bowl. Shred each piece using two forks--one to hold the chicken in place and the other to scrape across the meat and shred it. Return the shredded chicken to the crock pot, and mix well with the sauce.

If you're serving a group, keep the crock pot on its lowest setting, so the chicken stays warm. If you like, season to taste with crushed red pepper. Eat up!
