Good Eatin' Friday- Better for You BBQ Chx Sandwhich

Joshua and I are some BBQ lovin' fools! OMG!!! and Joshua can make some of the BEST BBQ you have ever put in your mouth.... Every 4th of July he fires up the smoker and we have one heck of a feast. The other day, we were passing by one of our fav BBQ spots and with watering mouths, we just kept going.....

The Smoking Pig, Pendelton SC
However this did inspire me. Joshua has now started his own contest prep but he's about 25 weeks out and has about double the amount of time that I have. Two of his 8 meals are boring chicken and he's been having a hard time choking it down, so I got creative with the crockpot and doctored his chicken up a bit. He loves it now of course!!!!

 Below I've added a few things for you guys that we can't have right now but trust me, are so good. Again modify this recipe to your diet and taste but try to keep it clean and with-in your calorie/carb/protein range.

Better for You BBQ Chicken Sandwiches
Crockpot BBQ Chx

*a 4oz serving of the BBQ Chx is 153 cal/ 22g protein/ 6g carbs

Kraft Light Original BBQ Sauce
*or your own choice

Ezekiel Sprouted Grain Buns 
*you can find these at Publix in the freezer section

How to make the chicken: Place 3 large boneless skinless chicken breast in a crockpot. Pour a bottle of Kraft Light BBQ Sauce all over the top. Turn on HIGH and set a timer for 3.5 hours. Once 3.5 hours have passed take the chicken out and shred it with two forks. Place all the chicken back in the crockpot with a little more BBQ sauce if you wish and cook on low for another 10 mins or so. You want the chx to soak up all that yummy BBQ flavor.

Toast your buns, build your sandwich & enjoy!!!

Some other ideas for your Crockpot BBQ Chicken:
  • On a whole grain pizza with veggies, low fat mozzarella and jalapeno's 
  • In a whole grain wrap
  • On romaine lettuce
  • On Arnold Multi Grain 100 calories thins
The possibilities are endless....

Have a Clean Eating weekend!

  1. Can I simply say what a relief to uncover somebody that truly knows what they are talking about over the internet.
    You actually know how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    A lot more people have to check this out and understand this
    side of the story. I was surprised that you are not more popular given that you definitely have
    the gift.
