Slow Cooker Barbecue Chicken

Makes 8 Servings

24 oz. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
3/4 cup barbecue sauce
1/4 cup reduced-fat Italian dressing
2 tbsp packed brown sugar
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp cornstarch
2 tbsp low-sodium chicken broth

1.  Put chicken in slow cooker.  In a bowl, combine barbecue sauce, dressing, brown sugar and Worcestershire sauce.  Pour over chicken.  Cover and cook on low for 5 hours. 

2.  Remove chicken to a cutting board and shred with 2 forks.  In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and chicken broth.  Stir into sauce in slow cooker, cover and cook until sauce is thickened and heated through, 5 to 10 minutes.  Return chicken to cooker, stir, cover and continue cooking on low for 45 minutes.  Serve chicken on whole-grain buns, over brown rice or with baked potatoes if you like.

You can freeze the leftovers or use them for Barbecue Chicken Quesadillas
