Crockpot Barbeque Chicken

At the end of August Patrick and I had some of our ol' pot luck friends over (hi Richard and Tim!). Since the summer weather was nearing the end I decided to serve one last summer hoo-rah meal with barbequed chicken sandwiches, slaw, and pineapple. 

And don't worry if these rations seems a little small, there was a decadent dessert to follow. Unfortunately we forgot to take a picture of the chocolate silk pie but I'll still post the recipe. It was amazing. I'll make it again soon so we can take pictures!

Crockpot Barbeque Chicken (adapted from here)
   from the stick a fork in it blog

4-6 pieces boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 bottle BBQ sauce (the blogger recommended Sweet Baby Ray's which I happened to have in the pantry so used that)
1/4 c vinegar
1 tsp. red pepper flakes
1/4 c brown sugar
1/2 - 1 tsp. garlic powder

Mix BBQ sauce with all ingredients listed under it. Place chicken in crockpot. Pour sauce over it and cook on LOW for 4-6 hours. 
I cooked the chicken breasts on low for 6-8 hours just because of work. Patrick leaves for work and gets home before me. So I prepare the crockpot and then he finishes the meal. For this particular dish I got everything ready and turned the crockpot on then when he got home he removed the chicken from the sauce, shredded it, and placed it back in the sauce.

We served the chicken with wheat hamburger buns, cole slaw, and freshly sliced pineapple. 
And for dessert? A delicious chocolate silk pie. Follow the link for the recipe or wait until we make it again and feature it on the blog!
