I modified Shredded Barbecue Chicken & came up with this version! I love the sweet & spicy taste, plus the simmering time makes the house smell delicious!

Loved the taste of this. Made for freezer tag. I followed the recipe as written other then I didn't add the red pepper flakes. I also tripled the recipe. We ate some when I first cooked it and froze the rest. When I was ready to eat again, I pulled the mixture and let it thaw in the fridge. I then heated in the microwave and served. It was even better warmed up and the flavors really went through the chicken. Very good chicken bbq.

This turned out sweet and delicious! I loved it and will definitely make this recipe again! I modified the recipe slightly by shredding pre-cooked leftovers from a chicken I roasted. I also substituted regular brown sugar for Splenda and chili powder for the red pepper flakes. Instead of using all ketchup I used half ketchup (Heinz) and half barbeque sauce (Cattlemen's Master's Reserve Memphis Sweet BBQ Sauce).
