After living in the south for many years I find that we like sweet and smokey BBQ chicken more than ever. With both Rick and I being type 2 diabetic we needed it to be Sugar Free also… The bonus with making it in the crock pot is that the breasts just fall apart and it becomes shredded without too much hassle.
I used boneless skinless breasts in this recipe so that it could be used as an Energizing meal if you wanted to make buns from my Sprouted Wheat Dough. You could also use Simple Soda Bread as a bun (bake it in a twinkie pan or microwave it in the top of a butter dish) and pile on the sweet and smokey bbq chicken.
I made up some Broccoli Slaw from The Coers Family to go along with this which is amazing as part of a sandwich or as a wrap!! Adding this makes this a satisfying meal for those following Trim Healthy Mama.

I found this recipe in a Fix-It and Forget-It cookbook that I inherited from my parents, it has so many lower fat and lighter meals in it. I’m sure I will be converting many more to fit within my trim and healthy lifestyle.
