BBQ Chicken in a Pot (WW recipe)

This is fab-U-lous!

Toss all these ingredients into a crock pot:

6 - 6oz chicken breast, skinless and boneless
1 1/2 c. slice onion
1/2 of a lemon, sliced
1 - 18oz BBQ sauce of your choice (Trader Joe's natural BBQ sauce is excellent in this recipe!)
1 c. diet soda (or sometimes i just throw in a whole can.)

Cook all day on low till done.
You can remove some of the juices to a pan on the stovetop and reduce liquid to make gravy.

6 servings = 4 pts each (~200 calories each)

Note: i've tried frozen chicken in this recipe to save a little money, but for some reason it just doesn't come out as tasty--it's really dry. Goes to prove that no amount of carbonation can fix frozen meat! :o) When it's made with fresh chicken, you'll want to keep a good eye on it after about 4 - 5 hours, because the chicken gets so tender that you will have a hard time picking it out of the crock pot without it falling apart. :o) When life hands you shredded chicken in a pot, just make BBQ Chicken tacos!! :o)
