The best BBQ Sandwich of your life

Happy Monday, readers!

 Wait.That's an oxymoron. Especially when it's the Monday after a long weekend. Hopefully this quick and easy meal makes up for it!

I made this BBQ chicken on the 4th of July to share, and completely forgot to take a picture of the finished project...so I had to pull a stock photo of  a BBQ sandwich. Just trust me, it looked something like the below ;)

You will need:

  • One Medium Onion, cut into rings
  • Your Favorite BBQ Sauce
  • Protein! (We use Chicken, Pork is great too)
  • Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Salt/Pepper/Red Pepper Flakes
  • Brown Sugar

Start by slicing your onion into rings, and layer in the bottom of a crockpot. (Don't forget to save these after, they make a delicious topping to the sandwich!)

Season your chicken with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes, and then layer on top of the onions. (Dear Lord almighty raw chicken is disgusting)

After your chicken is cooked, drain all but 1 cup of the liquid, and shred your protein with 2 forks. Return to the crockpot, add extra BBQ sauce, and make that delicious sandwich, baby!

This is one of my favorite quick crockpot meals, and it is SO good! Let me know if you give it a try for your next family cookout ;)

Until Next Time,
