War Eagle Barbecue Chicken Sandwich

In the South, everyone associates "War Eagle!" with fans of the Auburn Tigers. Now these sandwiches could also be known as "Roll Tide! Barbecue Chicken Sandwich", "How"Bout Them Dawgs! Barbecue Chicken Sandwich", or even "Hail to the Redskins! Barbecue Chicken Sandwich". What ever is your favorite team that you root for, you could name this sandwich.
The key to preparing the chicken is to slow cook the chicken breasts in the crock pot .

No Charge Ringtone from Flycell

1 & 1/2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast ( usually 3 large chicken breasts)
1/4 Vidalia onion
Bottle of your favorite barbecue sauce (or make your own - Step 5)
Kosher Salt
Coarse ground black pepper
Old Bay seasoning

1. Slice the 1/4 of the Vidalia onion and place 1/2 of the onion slicings in bottom of crockpot.
2. Rinse the chicken breasts, pat them dry, and remove all visible fat from the chicken breasts. Toss them into the crockpot.
3. Season the chicken breasts with Kosher salt, coarse ground black pepper, and Old Bay seasoning.
4. Place the remaining onion slices on top of the chicken breasts.
5. Pour bottle of your favorite barbecue sauce over the chicken breasts.
***If adventurous, then here is one way to create your own barbecue sauce to pour over the chicken breasts. Mix ketchup and yellow mustard in a ratio 5/8 ketchup to 3/8 mustard in a bowl. Add a little bit of Soy sauce, some lime juice, and some Italian dressing. Add some Louisiana hot sauce and a bit of Lawry's Steak & Chop Marinade. Mix all together. Stir in some salt, pepper, Old Bay seasoning. The quantity in bowl should be enough to cover chicken breasts in crockpot** *
6. Cook on Low for about 8 hours in crockpot or until chicken is nice and tender.
7. After about 4 hours, shred chicken with fork and knife in crockpot.
8. Mix shredded chicken and sauce in crockpot periodically last 4 hours.
9. Scoop mixture with slotted spoon when ready to serve onto bottom buns and top with bread and butter pickle. Place top bun on sandwich.

Meal Suggestion:

Serve Minted Potato and Pea Salad as a side. Quench the family's thirst with Almost Toomer's Corner Lemonade.
