Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 Cup Chicken Broth
  • 1 Cup Quinoa, uncooked
  • 1 Cup Frozen corn kernels
  • 1 Cup Red Bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 Cup Hickory BBQ sauce + additional for drizzling (GF if needed)
  • 1/2 Cup Onion, diced
  • 2 tsp Fresh Garlic, minced
  • 1/2 Tbsp Cumin powder
  • 1/2 Tbsp Smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp Chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp Hickory Liquid smoke
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1/2 Pound Raw Chicken breast
  • Cilantro, for garnish
  • Green onion, for garnish
  • Cheddar cheese, for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  • Combine all ingredients up to the liquid smoke in the bottom of your crock pot and stir together until well mixed.
  • Nestle the chicken breasts into the mixture, so that the liquid covers them. Cook on HIGH heat for 2-3 hours, or until the broth is absorbed and the chicken is no longer pink inside.
  • Remove the chicken breasts and shred with two forks. Place the shredded chicken pack into the slow cooker and mix well.
  • Garnish with remaining BBQ sauce, cilantro, green onions and cheddar cheese (if desired).
  • DEVOUR!
