Shredded chicken

Happy Labor day weekend
If you are looking for something to make for this Labor day weekend then this is the meal to make. It's quick, easy, and can feed a bunch of people without requiring a lot of time in the kitchen.

Shredded BBQ chicken
2 chicken breasts
1 can tomato paste
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup BBQ sauce
1 sliced onion
spices: 1 tsp. each cumin, smoked paprika, basil, oregano, garlic powder, chili flakes
dash salt and pepper

Combine everything in a crockpot and cook on high for 3 hours.
Once done shred chicken and serve
You can't have BBQ chicken without a nice crunchy slaw. This one is perfect with a seasonal summer twist with the addition of nectarines.

Summer nectarine slaw
1 bag shredded cabbage cole slaw mix
1 sliced red bell pepper
2 diced nectarines

1.5 tsp. garlic gold oil
1.5 tsp. sesame oil
1 TB. rice vinegar
1 TB. soy sauce
1 TB. raw honey
juice of 1 lime
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes

Mix dressing, cabbage, red pepper, and nectarines together. Let marinate for 1 hour or longer. If you would like a crunchy cole slaw I would suggest marinating for an hour. If you would like a soft more traditional cole slaw marinate for 2-3 hours.
Toss and serve.
Served with a side of creamy millet grits. This was an amazing summer dinner. The best part, it was so simple to create and would be perfect for a picnic or BBQ.
So many yummy things you can create with a bowl of shredded BBQ chicken.
Hmm what shall I create.
