What's up Wednesday--BBQ chicken (crock pot)

Mother's Day was a very good day.  Church was great.  I had to teach the lesson in young women's, but it went well.  We had yummy left over homemade pizza for lunch, and then I relaxed with some really cute boys (see above picture :) and took a nice long nap while everyone else made dinner.  I think we need to do that more often, not just once a year :)  So, Ben and the kids cooked dinner.  They made BBQ chicken which was appropriate for Mother's Day because it is my amazing mother-in-law's recipe, and it is so good!  No picture of the actual dinner, so take my word for it--it is super yummy, very easy, and you will definitely want to make it this week!  We serve it over rice.

Crock Pot BBQ Chicken

3/4 cup ketchup
2 Tbl. brown sugar
1 1/2 tes salt
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup chopped onion or 1 Tbl dehydrated dry onion
2-3 Tbl. vinegar
1 Tbl. chili powder (I never put this much in, I put in a little less, adjust to how much heat you like, this is really more sweet than spicy which is how I like anything)
1 Tbl. Worcestershire sauce

Mix all the above ingredients well.  

Place 3-4 large boneless,skinless chicken breasts in the crock pot and cover with sauce.  Cook on low 6-8 hours or high for about 4.  It is done when you can shred the chicken easily.  Take the chicken out and shred then put back into the sauce and stir.  Serve over rice.
