  • 15 ounces - tomato sauce
  • 3/4 cups - cider vinegar
  • 1 - small onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cups - packed brown sugar, plus 2 tablespoons
  • 3 tablespoons - molasses
  • 1/2 teaspoons - salt
  • 1/2 teaspoons - black pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds - boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 1/2 pounds - boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 tablespoons - cornstarch
  • 12 - hamburger buns
  • - jarred sliced mild jalapeno peppers, optional
  • Directions:

    Whisk together tomato sauce, vinegar, onion, brown sugar, molasses, salt and pepper in slow cooker insert. Add chicken breasts and thighs. Cover and cook on HIGH for 6 hours or on LOW for 8 hours.
    Uncover and remove chicken from sauce to a bowl. Pour sauce into a medium pot. In a small bowl, blend cornstarch and 1 tablespoon cold water. Stir into sauce in pot. Bring to a boil; boil 1 minute until thickened. (Or to avoid dirtying another pan, simply leave sauce in crockpot, add the cornstarch and water blend, and let simmer for a few minutes to thicken).
    Meanwhile, with 2 forks, roughly shred chicken. Pour sauce over chicken and gently stir to combine. Spoon shredded chicken mixture onto rolls and top with sliced jalapenos, if desired.
