This sandwich paired with some lightened up coleslaw just screams summer to me. I am planning on doubling this recipe and taking it to some picnics this summer along with some homemade hamburger buns (which I swear by these days!) I'll be sharing those recipes with you all soon!
Makes about 6 regular sized sandwiches or 10-12 sliders
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast
1 medium onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 15-ounce can tomato sauce
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup cider vinegar
5 tbsp molasses
1/4 cup tomato paste
1/2 tsp liquid smoke
1/4 tsp black pepper
Place all ingredients in a slow cooker set to low. Cook for 5-7 hours. Remove chicken from slow cooker and shred on a plate with two forks. Return shredded chicken to slow cooker and stir to combine. Serve on hamburger buns.
