Best "Baby Ray" Crockpot Barbecue

Okay, I seriously cannot believe I'm going to post about food right now, in light of my tumultuous tummy.  But I'll try to keep it short and sweet and the pics to a minimum. Ha.  Selah's birthday party was right around lunchtime, so we wanted to serve something that would be generally liked by all, and was fairly easy/inexpensive to make.  We love Sweet Baby Ray's barbecue sauce, so I just googled for a crockpot recipe for chicken that I could shred and use for sandwiches.  So the following is what I found.  And we LOVED how it turned out!!! (This is the link to the recipe I used.)

(This pic is from "The Comfort of Cooking," whose recipe also sounds good!)

4-6 chicken breasts (I used 6 per batch, and made two batches for a group of about 25)

1 bottle Sweet Baby Ray's barbecue sauce (We used original)

1/4 cup vinegar (I used Apple Cider vinegar and didn't quite use the full 1/4 cup, only since I knew we'd be doubling it and I was afraid of it potentially being too strong!)

1 tsp. red pepper flakes (I probably used about 1/2 tsp. for each batch, same reason as above)

1/4 c. brown sugar (definitely used all of this!) :)

1 tsp. garlic powder

Mix all ingredients except chicken.  Place chicken in the crockpot, and pour the sauce on top.  Cook on low 4-6 hrs. (We did about 6 hrs.)

This is where the website stops, but after the chicken and sauce cooled we shredded it in a large foil pan.  Then we poured the remaining sauce in the crockpot on top of it, covered it with saran wrap, and let it sit in the fridge all night.  It was SUPER moist, and made awesome sandwiches on those little Hawaiian rolls or Hawaiian buns.  We definitely added it to our dinner rotation and entertaining ideas lists!  To round out the party meal we served watermelon, (pink!:), chips, and puppy chow.  Yum.  Hope this adds another easy meal to your list! :)

P.S. (In searching for a picture I stumbled upon the Pioneer Woman's recipe, which I'm quite sure is good too!)
