    I set out to make this yesterday..only to get home from the store to realize I didn’t have any chicken! So I decided to try it with a pound of ground chuck and pork sausage then call it sloppy joes. My hubby LOVED it. He says it tastes just like a Mcrib. He is in love!! Thanks :-)

      I’m guessing you are talking about in the crock pot after cooking. We had juices left in the crock pot. You could use some of the liquid if you shred your chicken and want it juicier. Some readers put the shredded chicken on a bun or roll. Hope this helps. :)

    Recipe calls for 4 to 6 chicken breasts. So it would depend if they each want a whole chicken breast. If you are feeding 11 and some are men, for sure I would double it. You may need to do it in 2 separate crock pots with that much chicken.

    It is just my husband and I and seldom use our Crock Pot but would like to try this one, therefore, I would only use 2 chicken breast. Would I cut the ingredients in half? And how long should I cook them? Thanks!

      You can cut the rest of the recipe in half when using 2 chicken breast, or you could also leave the recipe as is. It may not take as long to cook, so keep an eye on it and check for doneness.
