Health Highlights
You're going to love this shredded chicken with homemade BBQ sauce.


1 medium/large bird Whole Chicken
2 tbsp Ghee
1/2 medium White onion (minced)
3 clove(s) Garlic
1 1/2 cup Apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup Tomato sauce, canned (or crushed tomatoes)
2 tbsp Tomato paste, canned
3 tbsp Honey
2 tsp Salt
2 tsp Black pepper
1 tsp Tabasco sauce (or hot sauce)


1. Rinse the chicken and pat it dry. 

2. Place the chicken in the slow cooker and sprinkle with 1 tsp salt and 1 tsp pepper. Cook on HIGH for 3 hours or LOW for 5 hours.

3. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, melt the ghee over medium heat. Add the minced onion and cook for 4-5 minutes or until softened.

4. Add the rest of the ingredients: garlic, apple cider vinegar, tomato sauce, tomato paste, honey and remaining salt and black pepper, and Tabasco. Stir well and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer over low heat.

5. Simmer the sauce until the volume has reduced by a quarter to a third. It should be slightly thickened but not pasty.

6. When the chicken has cooled a bit shred all the meat and unite it with the tangy, savoury sauce. Store in the fridge for up to 3 days, or store in your freezer and heat again with the crock pot.
