Shredded BBQ Chicken in the Crock-Pot and Oven Baked French Fries

We eat a lot of chicken in our house.  A lot.
Most of the time I grill it, because I try to be all healthy like during the week, but sometimes I like to spice things up and that's when I break out the old crock-pot and BBQ sauce.  The crock-pot does the work for me, so when I get home in the evening all I have to do is shred the chicken and make the fries.  I found these whole wheat hamburger buns at Trader Joes and really liked them.  I just wish their store was closer than two hours away!! 

Break out your crock-pot and make this dinner soon ~ you won't be sorry! 


Crock-Pot Shredded BBQ Chicken

1.5 lbs boneless chicken breasts (or about 4 nice-sized ones)
1 18 oz bottle of barbecue sauce (I use Sweet Baby Ray's)
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup Italian dressing
2 Tbsp worcestershire sauce

Place the chicken in your crockpot.  In a bowl mix the BBQ sauce, brown sugar, Italian dressing and Worcestershire sauce together.  Pour over chicken and set on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 3-4. Once the chicken is fork tender go ahead and shred it up.  

Oven Baked French Fries

2-3 large baking potatoes
1 Tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper

Wash, dry and cut your raw potatoes into large pieces, steak fry size.  Place cut potatoes into a large bowl.  Add olive oil and toss to coat. Cover a baking sheet with foil and place potatoes onto your lined baking sheet.  Sprinkle with salt and freshly ground pepper. Bake at 450 degrees for about 30 minutes or until fries are tender and lightly browned.
