yummy in a crockpot meal... easy to put together the night before or in the AM and then cook while at work...
cook in crock on low or warm... (for at least 7 hours)
chicken breasts (I normally do at least a pound, sometimes 2 or 3 since they get devoured)
(mix sauce and taste, then add chicken to crock) 1 12 oz can tomato paste 2 tablespoons mollasses (or more to taste) big squirt of honey (more if you like it sweet, less if you like it not so sweet- like us..) onion powder garlic powder chili powder (other hot pepper powder to taste - I use a small amount of chipotle to give it smoky flavor without a lot of heat)
(you can vary spices and flavors to taste- sugar works as a sweetener too, and if you don't like the mollasses taste- leave it out or use less)
1.5 cups water (more if needed to cover chicken completely once the chicken is added to sauce.
put lid on and cook. Immediately before serving pull the chicken pieces out and shred- you can use a fork, or put on a plate and use a spoon- it will just squish apart with a wooden spoon if its been cooked long enough! add back enough sauce to make it mildly soupy... store rest of sauce to use as BBQ on side or to use with something else (I often freeze it and defrost to put on chicken ont he grill later)
