- 1 15oz can of your favorite sloppy joe sauce
- 1 small onion cut into small slices
- 1/4 cup chopped jalapeno peppers (optional)
- Your favorite slider or hamburger bun
- (I added mayo and a pickle to my slider since it reminded me of a BBQ sandwich. Both are totally optional!)
- Spray slow cooker with cooking spray. Place all ingredients in slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours, or until chicken is done.
- 30 minutes before finished cooking, remove the chicken and shred with a fork. Put shredded chicken back in slow cooker and let simmer.
