Easy Crock Pot Barbeque Pulled Chicken

Have you ever made your own barbecue sauce? I find it a fantastic alternative the most bottled sauces, which often contain high fructose corn syrup and/or preservatives. This recipe is extremely simple (and delicious!) despite the fact that you are making your sauce. Just mix together, throw into a crock pot, and wait. Crock pot meals are always fantastic because they won't heat up your kitchen like an oven, and they make your house smell amazing for hours.

1 can (8oz) tomato sauce
1/4 C honey
1/4 C apple cider vinegar
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp ground mustard
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 white onion, chopped
2 large chicken breasts

1. In a large bowl, mix together tomato sauce, honey, vinegar, garlic, cumin, ground mustard, and salt.
2. Put chicken in the crock pot. Scatter onion pieces on the top, and then pour the sauce on top of that.
3. Turn crock pot on low for 8 hours. (Or high for 4 hours, if you're short on time.)
4. Scoop the chicken out of the crock pot and into a bowl. Shred it with 2 forks. Return the shredded chicken back into the crock pot and stir into the sauce.
5. Serve meat in rolls, sandwich style, directly before serving.
