Introduction

This is a Spark 'Editor's Choice' recipe that I modified for the crockpot, and shredded to make sandwiches with. It's very good. I like it because it's not a traditional bbq type sauce.

Ingredients

    3 lb. chicken parts (breast, drumstick, and thigh), skin and fat removed ( I used frozen chicken breasts)


    1 large onion, thinly sliced


    3 tablespoon vinegar


    3 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce


    2 tablespoon brown sugar


    black pepper to taste


    1 tablespoon hot pepper flakes


    1 tablespoon chili powder


    1 cup chicken stock or broth, skim fat from top

    Optional* 12 Hamburger buns-these aren't figured into the nutritional info.


    Note* if you don't like things too hot/spicy reduce the chili powder and red pepper flakes to 1/2.

Directions

This recipe makes about 12, 2/3 cup servings (that's a heaping sandwich if you're using a bun)


1. Add chicken in crockpot and arrange onions over the top.

2. Mix together vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, pepper, hot pepper flakes, chili powder, and stock.

3. Pour over the chicken and cook on low for 6-8 hours. Before serving use 2 forks to shred the chicken.


Note* if your sauce is too soupy simply spoon it into a sauce pan and add some cornstarch, bring it to a boil and either pour it back over your shredded chicken and mix it in, or serve it on the side.


You can serve this as a 'pulled chicken sandwich' or you can just serve it on a plate with veggies. It's yummy either way!

    I used cider vinegar, and the suggestion to halve the spices, and it turned out delicious! The sauce was quite liquid, but once I shredded the chicken, it didn't need any thickening. - 3/20/13

    Just stuck this in the crock pot. Went to the store to get the things I didn't have and missed the Worcestershire Sauce...I thought I had some but it was Teryaki...so It may be awful but we are going to try it with that instead. I'll edit, and let you know how it turns out! LOL - 7/8/12

  • I am making this right now and it smells awesome. Like chili. It would probably be good with black beans in it...yummmm. Will make again. - 4/28/12

    I didn't enjoy this recipe at all. It tasted like regular beef gravy like you put over mashed potatoes! I had to add BBQ sauce to make it taste even decent not to mention tons of corn starch. Would not recommend at all. Family didn't like it either. - 11/17/11
