Apple Barbeque Chicken, Slow Cooker

I wanted something different besides barbeque chicken sandwiches with bottled barbeque sauce. When I came across this I was intrigued and it turned out amazing. Sweet, vinegar-y, moist, and tender. A great sandwich for a busy week night or any night really!

Apple Barbeque Chicken, Slow Cooker
Recipe Adapted From:

4 Chicken Breasts
1 large Onion
2 Tablespoons Salt
1 Tablespoon Pepper
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

Cooking Liquid
3 cups Fresh Apple Juice, its in the fridge section
1/2 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
1 1/2 Tablespoons Sea Salt
1 Tablespoon Pepper
3/4 cup Ketchup
1 Tablespoon Molasses
3 teaspoons Worcestershire Sauce
7 Garlic Cloves
3 Tablespoons Dijon Mustard
3 Tablespoons Honey

BBQ Sauce
3 cups strained cooking liquid
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
3/4 cup Ketchup

1. Sprinkle the chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Slice the onion and place the rings on the bottom of the slow cooker and set the chicken on top. 
2. In a medium bowl combine all of the cooking liquid ingredients and stir until combined. Pour on top of the chicken. Cook on low for 8-9 hours.
3. Remove the chicken from the slow cooker and shred.
4. Using a couple slices of bread soak up the grease on top of the cooking liquid and throw away the bread. Strain the liquid and transfer 3 cups to a saucepan. Add the brown sugar and ketchup. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook for about 10 minutes until thickened. Combine the chicken and the sauce. Heat through and serve.
