Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken!

So I told y'all the other day how much I adore crock-pot meals. I mean, pouring your ingredients in a slow cooker & letting it simmer all day to come home to a great home cooked meal that needed no supervision? Perfection. Last night was the very first NFL regular season game (Giants vs. Cowboys- I detest them BOTH but I had a player from my fantasy team playing so I was all ears) and I knew some BBQ was in order. I had a bunch of errands to run all day, so I just threw everything in the slow cooker, came home & shredded the chicken, poured a glass of wine, & by kick-off our dinner was ready to go! 
I had the pleasure of serving my baby brother & 2 of his friends who gobbled these up right away. This recipe is ALWAYS a crowd pleaser and super great for game day. They made sandwiches out of their chicken, but if you're like me & you're not eating bread just skip the bun and eat it by itself- still tastes fantastic. I did have an issue finding BBQ sauce at the grocery store that didn't contain any high fructose corn syrup (you don't want that stuff- it's nasty!) but finally found a brand "Stubb's" I believe that was all good ingredients and tasted pretty fantastic!

Ingredients: (Serves about 6)
1 (12 oz.) bottle of BBQ sauce of your choice
1 packet of dry Italian dressing mix
1 C. water
1/4 C. corn starch
2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts

Step 1: Pour BBQ sauce, dressing mix, water, corn starch, and Worcestershire sauce into crock and whisk together until combined.
Step 2: Add chicken breasts to crock. Make sure there is enough liquid to cover chicken, you may need to add more water if there isn't enough liquid.
Step 3: Cover and cook on high for 3-3 1/2 hours or low for 6-7 hours.

Step 4: Pull chicken breasts out and shred with 2 forks and return to the crock when shredded, turn heat to low (if you had it on high heat) and cook another 30 minutes.
