Number of Servings: 4


    1 medium onion, thinly sliced or 1/2 large onion, thinly sliced
    3 boneless skinless chicken breast

    1/2 cup ketchup
    1/2 cup barbecue sauce
    2 tablespoons cider vinegar
    2 tablespoons molasses
    1 tablespoon yellow mustard
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    1 teaspoon onion powder
    1/4 teaspoon cumin
    1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
    1 pinch salt


Cut the onion in half and slice into thin half rings.
Line the bottom of the crock pot with the onions.
Trim the chicken breasts and place on top of the bed of onions. Mix all of the sauce ingredients together and pour on top of the chicken covering completely. (I make the sauce the night before so that it is a simple dump and run in the morning.)
Cook for 6 hours on low setting. The sauce thickens and turns into a dark rich brown during cooking. At the same time the onions dissolve into the sauce. When the chicken is falling apart tender, take two forks and shred the chicken.
Serve on top of split buns. I like mine toasted so they hold up better to the weight of the shredded chicken. Suggested sides include baked beans, corn on the cob, coleslaw or cucumber salad.
