slow-cooker bbq chicken

i'll confess that i was a little skeptical of this recipe because the thought of adding italian dressing to my bbq just didn't seem right, but we all loved it, so give it a try!  Click here for a printable version.

24 oz. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
3/4 cup barbecue sauce
1/4 cup italian dressing
2 Tbsp. packed brown sugar
1 Tbsp. worcestershire sauce
2 Tbsp. cornstarch
2 Tbsp. chicken broth (i used water)**

put chicken in slow cooker. in a bowl, combine barbecue sauce, dressing, brown sugar, and worcestershire sauce. pour over chicken. cover and cook on low for 5 hours. remove chicken to a cutting board and shred with 2 forks. in a small bowl, mix cornstarch and chicken broth. stir into sauce in slow cooker, cover and cook until sauce is thickened and heated through, 5 to 10 minutes. return chicken to cooker, stir, cover and continue cooking on low for 45 minutes. serve chicken on whole-grain buns, over brown rice, or with baked potatoes...or my personal preference -- skip the starch and have a healthy helping of potato salad on the side. :-)
