Crock Pot Shredded BBQ Chicken

Good evening friends!  I hope you are having a good week so far.  We are busy here tying up loose ends with our official home school year.  I just wanted to stop by and share this super easy and SUPER yummy recipe.  Both of my children even loved it.  On his way to bed tonight, my little boy was asking if I would save some for him to have another sandwich tomorrow!  That never happens with my picky little man.  :)

I found the original recipe here on Pinterest.  True to me, I didn't follow the recipe given.  Here's my recipe.

3 large chicken breasts with rib meat
1 can of cherry flavored soda
3/4 bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce
1 clove of garlic, minced  (DeeGee, if you are reading this, you will be impressed to know I used the real thing!)  ;)
1/2 cup of brown sugar

Combine all ingredients in the crock pot, and cook on low for three hours until chicken is done and just starts to comes apart easily with a fork.

Remove the breasts and shred.  It is very easy to do with two forks.

Oh my stars!  I have never made chicken this moist in my
crock pot!
Return shredded chicken to the crock pot to keep it warm until you are ready to use it.  At this point, I added in a little more BBQ sauce.

Be prepared to do the happy dance when you take the first bite!

I hope you get to try it!  Thank you Pinterest for creating happiness in my kitchen!  ;)

Until we meet again, may you be blessed!
