1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, uncooked

2 cups apple juice (or apple cider)

1 (at least 16 oz) bottle of BBQ sauce

1 onion, sliced and sauteed (optional)

Toast, burger buns, rolls...just your favorite kind of bread

 

In your slow cooker, add in your chicken, apple juice (or cider) and entire bottle of BBQ sauce.  Cook on low 6 to 8 hours or on high 3 to 4 hours.  When dinner is ready, remove chicken and some sauce from slow cooker into a bowl, shred up with two forks (add in a little more of your sauce if needed).  Serve shredded chicken with sauteed onions (optional) on top of your favorite bread (we used a whole wheat loaf from our bakery.

Done!  See how simple that was?  The chicken was super tender and moist and very flavorful.  The apple juice really adds a little sweetness without being too over-powering.  I put my chicken in there straight from the fridge but you could add them in frozen if you like (just make sure you have them in there at least 8 hours on low, 4 on high).
