Description: Root Beer + BBQ Sauce + Chicken = Our go-to recipe in the summer!

2.5 lb  Boneless/Skinless Chicken Breast
1.5 C  BBQ Sauce (we love Sweet Baby Ray's)
1 C  Root Beer (I used Barq's)

Instructions: Spray slow cooker with cooking spray.

Season chicken breasts on both sides with salt and pepper, and place inside slow cooker. Pour in barbecue sauce and root beer; spread around. Cover and cook on High heat setting 2 hours.

Remove chicken from slow cooker, and use two forks to shred. Place chicken back in slow cooker on Warm heat setting; simmer 30 minutes. Serve on burger buns, as desired.

Other Tips:
For more flavor, add shredded cheese on top of your sandwiches.
Choose your favorite barbecue sauce for desired flavor.
