Introduction

Just to clarify, we love using a crock pot for a variety of recipes but we also enjoy a barbecue sandwich thatís done and on the table in a little over an hour! And we know many of you donít own a crock pot either. This chicken come together so easily and is very tender and extremely flavorful. Weíre making ours skinny by using chicken without skin, tossing the coleslaw with a low calorie and fat dressing and using a 100 calorie sandwich thin for the bun. If youíre not looking to feed a crowd just cut this recipe in half. One thing we know for sure, itís really, really delicious...

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Place chicken breasts in a roasting pan or rectangular Pyrex baking dish. Arrange sliced onions over the chicken, then pour the barbecue sauce over top, reserving 1 cup for later. †Cover the baking dish/pan tightly with foil and place in the oven. Cook chicken for 1 hour, remove foil and cook for about 10 minutes longer until chicken is fork tender.
2. In the meantime, prepare the coleslaw-In a large bowl add the cabbage, carrots and scallions. In a small bowl mix together the dressing ingredients. Refrigerate the coleslaw and dressing separately until ready to serve. Donít toss until serving so the coleslaw remains crisp and crunchy, not soggy.
3. Remove the chicken to a plate or cutting board. Using two forks, pull the chicken breasts apart to shred the meat. Place the shredded chicken back in the pan, add the reserved 1 cup barbecue sauce and toss the chicken well to thoroughly coat it in the sauce remaining in the†pan.
4. Serve the pulled chicken warm. Place on the bottom of each sandwich thin Ĺ cup barbecue shredded chicken. Add onion, ĺ cup slaw and top with sandwich thin.
5. If you have any leftovers, the shredded chicken freezes great.
