  1. Place the chicken breasts into the bottom of a slow cooker. In a bowl, stir together the ketchup, mustard, lemon juice, garlic powder, maple syrup, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder, cayenne pepper, and hot sauce until the mixture is well blended.
  2. Pour the sauce over the chicken, set the cooker to Low, and cook for 6 hours. Shred the chicken with two forks, and cook for 30 more minutes. Serve the chicken and sauce spooned into the sandwich rolls.


  • Cook's Note
  • For best results, after 6 hours of cooking, make another batch of the BBQ sauce, pour over shredded chicken and stir; cook another 1/2 hour until finished.
  • Easy Cleanup
  • Try using a liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.

This really was quite tasty...I rolled up the shredded chicken in warm flour loved it! Serve along with a crisp green salad and dinner is on!

The sauce I didn't think have a real BBQ flavor. I ended up adding almost a bottle of Head Country BBQ sauce. The one thing i did like is how it gave it spice. I would make it again, it was stil...

Very good recipe. My husband and 13 yr old son loved it. Had ingredients on hand and was very easy and good. Did cut back on the syrup due to other reviews stating was too sweet. Was worried tha...

AWESOME! This could not be easier to make. Perfect for days when you're going to be out most of the day. Just throw in the crock pot and forget about it for hours. The sauce is on the sweet side...
