Oh, you're in for a treat today. When fall rolls around my slow cooker becomes a weekly occurrence. Yesterday's dinner plans quickly changed when I realized I had to show up for jury duty. To top it off the process took longer than expected and, yes, I was pick as a juror!

Anyway, during our hour lunch break I ran home and threw together a quick slow cooker dish. Hey there was no way I was going to want and cook after jury duty.  I knew I would be exhausted and have to catch up on work, blog, life, etc. Luckily I worked out at 6 a.m.

After a quick survey I decided on Pulled Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches. And no it's not just BBQ sauce and chicken in a slow cooker. People PLEASE don't do that. I have a much tastier and healthier way thanks to Against All Grain.

Pulled Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches
serves 6 [via Against All Grain]


1 pound chicken, skinless chicken breasts
1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs
3/4 cup diced yellow onion
1/2 cup + 2tbsp white vinegar
1/2 honey
1/4 cup Hunt's Recipe Ready "Pre-measure 2TBS" Paste Pouches [you'll need 2 pouches]
2 tbsp coconut amigos
1 1/2 tbsp all-natural liquid smoke
2 tsp minced garlic
2 tsp fish sauce
1 1/2 tsp chili powder
1 1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp paprika
1tsp Dijion mustard
3/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp pepper


Place all ingredients in a slow cooker and cook on high for 3 hours. Remove chicken and shred using two forks. Return chicken to slow cooker and continue cooking for 1 hour.

Meanwhile make sides and/or buns. If I don't have time I use mini rolls.

Yes, you read that correctly - pre-measured pouches. All our dreams have been answered. I don't know about you, but I've thrown away so many half used cans of tomato paste over the years.
