shredded bbq chicken sandwiches

frozen chicken tenders (about 10)
bbq sauce (we love "Bulls Eye" Original)
small sweet onion
rolls or biscuits
mozzarella cheese (optional)

Add frozen chicken tenders to the bottom of your slow cooker.  Give onion a rough chop and sprinkle it over the chicken in the pot.  Pour 1/2 bottle of  bbq sauce over the chicken & onions. Make sure to cover the tenders the best you can. Cover slow cooker and cook on low for 4 hours.  At hour 3, open the lid and shred the chicken with 2 forks inside the slow cooker.  Place the lid back and cook for the additional hour. 

Slice rolls and assemble sandwiches (I used Pillsbury Grands Biscuits) .  Add cheese (I used slices of string cheese which melted so perfectly).

serves 4

Such a easy & great meal. The left over shredded chicken can be used in a recipe for another night. For example, I like to make bbq chicken pizza.
