  • 4 lbs. skinless boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 c. water
  • 1/2 c. cider vinegar
  • 1/2 c. packed brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce

  1. Combine all ingredients (except barbecue sauce) in a slow cooker and cook over low heat until meat is tender and shreds easily. *I used a Nesco Cooker on the slow cook setting.
  2. If you are using barbecue sauce, mix in desired amount.
  3. Serve with your favorite sandwich rolls and sides.
