Can you ever have too many slow cooker recipes? I don’t think so. I love coming home at the end of the day to dinner all ready in the crockpot, just waiting to be devoured by my hungry family. Slow cooker recipes are a life saver when you’re too busy to mess with dinner prep. Just throw a little of this and a little of that in the pot and you’re good to go. Just don’t forget to plug it in—yeah that’s happened to me before, if I’m being honest. More than once.
If you’re looking for a tasty new slow cooker recipe to try, then these Slow Cooker Peach BBQ Chicken Sandwiches from TK member Marie are perfect to try out. The chicken slowly simmers in a rich sauce of barbecue sauce (I used my own homemade sauce), sticky sweet peach preserves, onions, and garlic. Then top it all off with creamy coleslaw, some fresh sliced avocado, and you’ve got yourself one tasty sandwich.
You’ll need: chicken breasts, spicy barbecue sauce, peach preserves, onion, garlic, bread, butter, coleslaw, and avocado.
Place the onion, garlic, and barbecue sauce in your slow cooker.
Get a nice scoopful of the peach preserves.
Add the preserves, give it a good stir, then place the chicken on top. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours.
When chicken is done, remove it from the slow cooker along with some of the sauce, and use a fork to shred the chicken.
Toast your bread with a little butter. I used Hawaiian rolls but your favorite bread will work.
Now assemble your sandwich. Place some of the chicken on your bread.
Top with the coleslaw and sliced avocado.
Top with another slice of bread, stand back, and enjoy your handiwork.
Now dig in! And try not to drool too much.
