HG Slow-Cookin' Pulled Chicken

1 1/2 lb. raw boneless skinless lean chicken breasts, halved
1 cup canned tomato sauce
1/2 cup ketchup
2 tbsp. plus 2 tsp. brown sugar (not packed)
2 tbsp. plus 2 tsp. cider vinegar
2 tsp. garlic powder
Optional: red pepper flakes, to taste

Place all ingredients except the chicken in the crock pot. Stir until mixed. Add chicken and coat well with the sauce.

Cover and cook on high for 3 - 4 hours OR on low for 7 - 8 hours, until chicken is fully cooked.

PER SERVING (1/2 cup): 149 calories, 1g fat, 462mg sodium, 10g carbs, <0.5g fiber, 9g sugars, 22.5g protein -- POINTS® value 3*

NOTE: I fixed this and it was so easy and very yummy! I toasted some wheat bread and had a sandwich.

Remove all the chicken and place it in a bowl. Shred each piece using two forks -- one to hold the chicken in place and the other to scrape across the meat and shred it. Return the shredded chicken to the crock pot, and mix well with the sauce.

If you're serving a group, keep the crock pot on its lowest setting, so the chicken stays warm. If you like, season to taste with red pepper flakes. Eat up!

Hey Girl! I am back...unpacked and have internet now. And needing some accountability again! I am 8 days away from my due date and have done pretty well overall with this pregnancy. But I think since I so close, it's just easy to be "whatever" about how much i eat and not really listen to my body's hunger cues. I am committing to journaling again. Can't say how consistent I will be after baby is born at first, but I will try. I will start my journaling tomorrow :-)
