So, I bought chicken thighs last time I was at the store, wanting to do some Asian paper wrap chicken. But alas, at last minute I find out I don’t have the stuff to make it. So while I could improvise, my husband made a suggestion that sounded yummy! So, with the new bread I have made, this is a croc pot recipe that you can sit, and forget, and even use for other things if you so desire. And its another simple recipe!
Recipe calls for:
- Package of chicken thighs, boneless and skinless
- BBQ Sauce
- Croc Pot
The beauty of this is that you put the chicken in the croc pot with the BBQ sauce (no water!!) and let it cook all day on low! After 4-5 hours on low, you should be able to shred the chicken beautifully. I personally let it cook even longer after that so every bit of chicken gets that BBQ flavoring, and it helps the chicken absorb some of the liquid that develops with the long cooking time.
That’s it! However, we will be making a type of slaw to go on top of it in the sandwiches, which I use
- Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder, onion powder
And if I had them, Green onions as well. But I do. Ah well, can’t have perfection every time. I don’t cut it in the traditional “cole slaw” fashion. I just do a rough chop for everything and mix together. Home-style Cole slaw I guess you could say. My family has no complaints over it and it does amazing with BBQ chicken sandwiches! I make it about an hour before dinner that way it has a good hour or so to get nice and cold in the fridge, and get all those flavors married together.
We had this for dinner last night, and let me tell you, it was amazing! Were having it again tonight, but I had to break down and buy more bread for it. I’m all out of yeast so I can’t make anymore bread but we still have a lot of chicken and slaw left. So I’m going to be getting some onion flavored hamburger buns and we shall see what the family likes better. The meat on homemade bread, or onion flavored store bought bread.
So, if you try this, please comment on this post and tell me how you like it, and if you did something different, what did you do? Did it improve the sandwiches more? I’d love to hear !
