Don’t these sandwiches look delicious?!?! And just wait until you see how simple they are to make! Andrew isn’t a big citrus person, so I wasn’t sure what he would think but he loved them! I loved that they cooked all day in my slow cooker and were ready and waiting on us after our busy day. The perfect weeknight dinner!
This recipe makes 4 sandwiches.
1 to 1 1/2 pounds of chicken breasts (frozen or defrosted, either way)
1 cup Orange Marmalade (found on the Jelly/Jam aisle)
1 1/2 cups of your favorite BBQ sauce
Chopped green onions to garnish (optional)
Orange zest to garnish (optional)
In your slow cooker, layer the first 3 ingredients. Stir the marmalade and BBQ sauce together and make sure it’s all over your chicken inside the slow cooker. Cover and cook on low 7 to 8 hours or on high 3 to 4 hours.
When you’re ready to serve, remove the lid and shred the chicken right inside the slow cooker using two forks.
Top burger buns with the chicken mixture and garnish.
So simple and yet so full of flavor!
The perfect weeknight supper!
