After a long, busy week of work, going to school, and running kids back and forth between their schools and sports, the last thing I want to do is be in the kitchen on the weekends!

One of my family favorite recipes is Slow-Cooking Pulled Chicken!  No… I said chicken, not pork! While my kids are getting ready in the morning for basketball, soccer, or dance, I am in the kitchen loading up my crock pot! Having a crock pot is a life saver for a big family on the go, especially one that is health conscious. Today lots of families hit a fast food chain after a long day of sports or outdoor activities; we on the other hand, come home to a homemade meal that is ready to serve our hungry troops!

Ingredients:

2 -3 lbs raw boneless skinless lean chicken breasts

½ white onion - finely chopped

1 cup canned tomato sauce

1/2 cup ketchup

3 tbsp brown sugar - not packed

3 tbsp Bragg’s apple cider vinegar

2 tsp fresh garlic

Optional: instead of adding tomato sauce, brown sugar, and ketchup, use your favorite BBQ sauce!

Directions:

Place all ingredients except the chicken in the crock pot. Stir until mixed. Add chicken and coat well with the sauce.

Cover and cook on high for 3 - 4 hours OR on low for 7 - 8 hours, until chicken is fully cooked. Shred chicken using two forks.

Serve on whole wheat rolls with your favorite salad in the summer or cup of hot soup in the winter
