Pulled Chicken Sandwiches


It was hot here today.  The heat index was a sticky 103 degrees and needless to say I did not want to heat up my kitchen using the oven.  The answer?  My trusty ol' crockpot.  I wanted to make pulled chicken sandwiches and didn't want a barbeque type sauce, so I used a spice rub that I had made the other day for a different recipe.  While I may still tweak it a bit, it was good and all the family liked it.  I served it on the little Hawaiian rolls and topped it with some melted cheese.

Pulled Chicken Sandwiches

3 Tbsp brown sugar
2 Tbsp salt
1 Tbsp paprika
1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper
1/4 tsp dry mustard
1/8 tsp cinnamon
4 Chicken breasts
1 Cup chicken broth
Rolls
Shredded cheddar cheese

Mix all of the spice ingredients together in a small bowl to make the rub.  Sprinkle 2-3 tablespoons of the rub over 4 chicken breasts, and rub in.  Put the chicken broth in the crockpot, followed by the chicken breasts.  Sprinkle about another 1-2 tablespoons of the rub into the crockpot.

Cook on high for 2 hours, or low for 4 hours.  Each crockpot cooks differently, so check the chicken periodically to gauge how much more time is needed.  Don't remove the lid until you think the chicken is done, because this will cause the cooking temperature to drop.  When the chicken is done, remove from the crockpot and shred with a fork.

Remove most of the chicken broth from the crockpot.  Put the shredded chicken back into the crockpot and add enough of the chicken broth back to make it your desired consistency.  Place some of the shredded chicken on a roll, and top with shredded cheese.  Put the rolls on a plate under the oven broiler for a few minutes until the cheese is melted.  Serve with your favorite sides and enjoy.

Tip: This rub will make more than you need, it saves well and can be used for other recipes.
