Crock Pot Apricot Chicken Sandwiches
Why I Love This Recipe
Ingredients You'll Need
1 medium onion
1/2 cup Smucker's Low Sugar Apricot Preserves
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup barbecue sauce
2 Tbsp Heinz Apple Cider Vinegar
1 Tbsp Heinz Worcestershire Sauce
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
2 pound uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breast
2 Tbsp water
1 Tbsp cornstarch
1/2 Tbsp ginger root, or ginger from tube
1/2 tsp table salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
6 Wonder Light White Hamburger Bun(s)
1. Combine inions, preserves, brown sugar, bbq sauce, vinegar, worcestershire sauce and pepper flakes in a small bowl. Place chicken in 5-quart crock-pot. Pour apricot mixture over the chicken. Cover; cook on low for about 5 hours.
2. Transfer chicken to cutting board; cool slightly. Shred chicken in coarse shreds using 2 forks.
3. Blend water, cornstarch, ginger, salt & pepper until smooth. Whisk cornstarch mixture into cooking liquid. Cook, uncovered, on high 15to 20 minutes, or until thickened. Return shredded chicken to crock; mix well. Serve on buns
Buns are included in points value. I used ginger from the tube instead of fresh. It's just way easier! The ginger actually MAKES the recipe, I think. This recipe was doubled. The version I have is cut in half. You can double it to make more. It would then serve 12. This was sssoooo good. We all loved it! Perfect for fall. I made it all the night before & just put the crock on in the morning. Again, easier! Enjoy!
