Crock-Pot Cheesy BBQ Chicken Sandwich

Dinner couldn't be any easier than this...it's seriously as easy as 1-2-3. I couldn't believe that it took so little effort and tasted so divine! I love it when dinner is as easy as putting 2 ingredient in a pan and waiting for it to cook and then "WALAA" you have a gourmet meal (well as gourmet as a sandwich can be)! Give it a try...you will love it and so will the man of the house, because it tastes like you worked hard on dinner all day long, when we all know that secretly you got to take a nap while dinner cooked all on its own. Enjoy a break from cooking dinner....yet eating like you have been cooking for hours.

Crock-Pot Cheesy BBQ Chicken Sandwich
6-8 boneless skinless chicken breast (about 1 1/2-2 lbs meat)
1 bottle of Famous Daves barbecue sauce
cooked bacon
sliced swiss or provolone cheese
buns ( I used buns from the deli that were a little "tough" on the outside but fresh and moist on the inside)

Brown chicken in frying pan with a small amount of oil, just until meat is browned on both sides (2-3 minutes each side...this helps the meat from falling apart while it cooks in the crock pot. You want the pieces to remain whole, not shredded). Place chicken in crock pot, cover with barbecue sauce. Cook on low/warm for 8 hours (mine actually cooked on warm, my low tends to be a little FAST as well as HOT when it comes to cooking). If your sauce becomes too thick while cooking, add a little water.
Before serving, cook bacon until crispy. Butter buns on the inside and place butter side down, into a frying pan, cook until browned. Place hot barbecue chicken in bun, add cooked bacon and sliced cheese. Serve hot. YUMMY...bet you don't get any complaints from dinner tonight!

Happy Cooking~
