Crockpot Chicken Sandwiches

Need a low-maintenance summer dinner? Toss chicken in at the beginning of your shift and shred at dinner without worrying about call interruptions! Pair with the Strawberry Spinach Salad or the Watermelon Feta Salad.

Active Prep Time: 20 minutes

Makes 6-8 servings.

    • 1 pack of 4-5 chicken breasts
    • 1, 16oz container BBQ sauce 
    • 3 Tbsp BBQ seasoning
    • 6-8 whole grain sandwich rolls
    1. Place all ingredients in a crockpot.
