Shredded Chicken

A friend brought this to us when we were remodeling the kitchen. She got the recipe from her sister and adapted it a bit...now I've changed it. Sometimes I wonder if we have gone full circle and it is now back to the original!

I have never served this to anyone and not had them ask for the recipe! It's just that good. Since we're all so busy in the evenings it's nice to have some recipes that work for the whole family and everyone can scoop their dinner out of the crockpot when they get home. Another bonus of this recipe is that the end product freezes well. So, if you have any left at the end of the evening, you have a meal for another time.

1/4 c firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 c mustard
2 T. ketchup
2 t cider vinegar
2 T hot pepper sauce
red pepper flakes
1 t black pepper
1 t crushed red pepper
2 t liquid smoke
3 lb bag of boneless skinless chicken breasts

Throw all the above in the crockpot and cook for 8 hours or so on low. Shred the chicken.
Serve on buns with shredded cabbage.

Tip: It's a great idea to have this the same week as the fish tacos (see..post) so all the cabbage gets eaten!
