Slow-Cooker BBQ Chicken Sandwiches
Hey my busy divas, I know we're all looking for ways to do it all. To eat healthy, perform at our jobs, work out, and oh yeah, still have time for a jumpin' social life. Maybe some of us can do it all perfectly (not), but most likely you're a lot like me. We strive for perfection, but we fall a little short. Well, don't worry, because The Diva is here to help make your quest to do it all a little bit easier. With the economy in its current state, we're all trying to cut back, too. So here's a recipe based on a few simple, inexpensive ingredients I scooped up at Trader Joe's. It's healthy, a cinch to throw together, and as Kuzak admitted, "divalicious."
Domestic Diva's Quick Slow-Cooker BBQ Chicken Sandwiches
1 package organic chicken thighs, fat trimmed
1 bottle BBQ sauce
2 whole wheat buns
1 bottle ginger mango chutney (from TJs)
1 cup organic microgreens
In a crock pot or slow cooker, add the chicken. Cover with BBQ sauce. Simmer for approximately 5 hours, or until very tender. Shred the chicken with a fork.
Once the chicken is cooked, toast the buns. Spread with chutney, add a good helping of BBQ chicken and top with the microgreens. Enjoy!
