Pulled Barbecued Chicken Sandwiches

Yield: 8 to 10 sandwiches Prep Time: 10 min Cook Time: 6 hrs Ingredients: 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts 1 cup barbecue sauce (a flavor you like) 1/3 cup Italian dressing (reduced-fat or fat-free okay) 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce 2 tablespoons cornstarch 2 tablespoons chicken broth additional barbecue sauce, if desired rolls, for serving as sandwiches bread and butter pickles, optional
Directions: 1. Place chicken in the slow cooker. In a medium bowl, whisk together the barbecue sauce, Italian dressing, sugar and Worcestershire sauce. Pour the sauce over the chicken. Cover and cook on low for 4 1/2 to 5 hours. 2. Remove the chicken to a cutting board. In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and chicken broth. Stir it into the sauce in the slow cooker. Cover and cook on high until the sauce is thickened and heated through (10 to 15 minutes). Meanwhile, use two forks to shred the chicken. Return the shredded chicken to the slow cooker and stir. Add additional barbecue sauce if more sauce is needed or desired. Cover and continue cooking on low for 45 minutes. Serve chicken piled onto rolls. Add pickles, if desired. Tips: *The brand of barbecue sauce that you use can make a big difference in the flavor of the chicken. I like Sweet Baby Ray's! Source: (Adapted slightly from All You)
