Recipe Tuesday-BBQ Pulled Chicken

I have to say, this recipe was so easy and delicious, I will be using it with slight variations frequently.

I started with preparing the sauce.  Combine one 15 oz can of tomato sauce, one 4 oz can green chillies, 3T cider vinegar, 2T honey, 1T sweet or smoked paprika, 1T tomato paste, 1T Worcestershire sauce, 2t dry mustard (I used 2T honey mustard), 1t chili powder, and 1/2t salt in the bottom of your crock pot and stir well.

Then add 2 1/2 lbs. skinless, boneless chicken thighs.

Then add 1 medium onion chopped and 1 clove garlic minced.
Stir well.  Cook on low until chicken can be pulled apart, in my case 3 1/2 hours.

Transfer chicken to cutting board and shred with a fork.

Transfer sauce to blender or food processor and puree.

Then return shredded chicken and sauce to crock pot, stir well and heat on warm until ready to serve.

Absolutely YUMMY!
