So my DH invited guests over for bbq w/ a 2 hours notice. We ran out of propane, so I had to think out of the box. I always do my pulled pork or chicken sandwiches in the crockpot, so I was honestly wondering how this would turn out. I made exactly as directed except I cooked a little of 2 lbs of chicken, so I adjusted ingredients accordingly. I didn't have any liquid smoke, so I used up a bit of bottled chipotle bbq sauce I had on hand. I also thinly sliced the onion & let them simmer in with the chicken breasts along with a splash of apple cider vinegar. This was so good & it turned out so well... Nothing was left. The guys stuffed themselves silly & were raving. This sauce is a perfect blend of sweet/spicy. Thank you for a very easy & quick way to make these. This recipe is a keeper!
