Labor Day dinner

Well, yesterday was Labor Day. Like that matters in the Restaurant world, so I was home alone with the kids. Since we are planning on returning to Canada in about a year and a half, we've yet to buy ourselves a grill, or barbecue, as the Canadian folk like to say. Any way since we don't have a grill, I decided to make the crock pot BBQ chicken recipe, I was lucky enough to discover on Baby Center's cooking board. I cooked up the chicken, shredded it and we had homemade BBQ Chicken Sammies, with jazzed up Bush's baked beans and deviled eggs. Mr.B really enjoyed dinner and hubby was glad to have leftovers when he returned home last night. The chicken is always so tender and flavorful, this is truly on of the best BBC cooking board finds.

Slow-Cooker BBQ Chicken

3-4 chicken breasts (can be frozen)
2 C ketchup
4 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp vinegar
1/2 tsp garlic powder

Mix all ingredients (except chicken) in crock-pot. Add the chicken, coating each piece in sauce. Cook on high 4 hours. Remove chicken and shred/pull with forks. Return to pot and stir in sauce to coat. Serve on buns.

Cindy's notes: I add 1/2C of our favorite BBQ sauce to the slow cooker as well.

**Leftovers can be frozen and re-heated for sandwiches, or used to make BBQ chicken pizza (put on a pizza crust, top with favorite cheeses, onions, etc.) or used to make BBQ chicken burritos (put on tortillas, add re fried beans, cheeses, etc.)
