I took our BBQ Crock pot chicken recipe and turned it into shredded BBQ chicken. This is a super easy recipe and a great way to stretch your dollar by shredding the chicken and serving it on a bun. I was able to turn 3 chicken breasts into enough to feed my family for 2 nights! This is a great recipe when you are feeding a large crowd. The chicken goes further and tastes great on a bun. In fact you can easily double this recipe and serve it as the whole breast the first night and use the leftovers to shred to mix up the leftovers a bit for your family and serve it the second night on a bun.
