Awesome Pulled Chicken in your Slow Cooker Tonight

Apple BBQ Pulled Chicken Sandwiches with Apple Slaw (Serves 4)

It's Tuesday and we are just getting in to the week.  The slow cooker is your friend when you don't have hours to spend in the kitchen.
This dish is on the menu for our pumpkin patch weekend.  I'll set up the slow cooker in the morning and the house will smell amazing when we return.  
This sandwich is delicious when you side it with sweet potato fries.  Store bought or I like to make my own.  Simply wash and slice thinly sweet potatoes.  Place on a baking sheet gently sprayed with cooking spray, and drizzle olive oil over the sweet slices.  Sprinkle with sea salt and pop into the oven
at 350 for 20-30 minutes or until tender and golden brown.  Turn halfway through.  I can't wait! 

Place the following in the slow cooker and cook on low for 6-8 hours.  Shred the chicken with 2 forks. Serve on buns and top with Apple Slaw.  
1 lb. boneless skinless chicken thighs or breasts, 2 large apples, peeled and cut into small pieces, small sliced onion, 4 slices cooked and crumbled bacon, 1 cup BBQ sauce. 

~Apple Slaw~
Slaw - 2 apples, julienned, 2 cups cabbage finely shredded, 1 carrot, julienned, 2 green onions, sliced thin (optional)

~Creamy Maple Dijon Dressing~
3 tablespoons Greek yogurt, 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar, 2 teaspoons maple syrup, 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard, salt and pepper to taste (can add small clove minced garlic if desired)
Mix the apples, cabbage, carrot and green onion and toss in the mixture of the yogurt, cider vinegar, maple syrup, Dijon mustard, garlic, salt and pepper.

Happy Tuesday!
