Pulled Chicken BBQ

Well – I tried another Hungry Girl recipe tonight and fell in love with it, as usual!!  This was for a pulled chicken bbq that is very very tasty!!!  It is done in the crock pot and is super easy!  And the best part is the nutritionals – each 1/2 cup serving is only 149 calories and 1 gram of fat.  That comes out to only 3 WW points!  YUMMY!!  Serve it on those yummy Orowheat sandwich thins for a low point bbq sandwich!!

Here’s the recipe:

1 1/2 lb. raw boneless skinless lean chicken breasts, halved
1 cup canned tomato sauce
1/2 cup ketchup
2 tbsp. plus 2 tsp. brown sugar (not packed)
2 tbsp. plus 2 tsp. cider vinegar
2 tsp. garlic powder
Optional: red pepper flakes, to taste

Place all ingredients except the chicken in the crock pot. Stir until mixed. Add chicken and coat well with the sauce.
Cover and cook on high for 3 - 4 hours OR on low for 7 - 8 hours, until chicken is fully cooked.
Remove all the chicken and place it in a bowl. Shred each piece using two forks -- one to hold the chicken in place and the other to scrape across the meat and shred it. Return the shredded chicken to the crock pot, and mix well with the sauce.
If you're serving a group, keep the crock pot on its lowest setting, so the chicken stays warm. If you like, season to taste with red pepper flakes. Eat up!
