Awesome Easy BBQ Pulled Chicken

Last summer I discovered this recipe on McCormick's website:
it's delicious for bbq pulled chicken - I made it 3 times the first week!
I can never find the packets of "McCormicks Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Pork Seasoning" - so instead i use a BBQ Pork Rub (a lot of it) and then also add additional sprinkles of just regular "BBQ Spice" like Grill Mates.

NOTE: you can also skip the whole "bbq sauce" making part and just pour one full bottle of your fav bbq sauce overtop of the chicken. that works too - but this sauce is pretty tasty so try it once! 
Slow Cookers BBQ Pulled Chicken:

Makes 8 servings.
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 5 hours on LOW or 2 1/2 hours on HIGH
2 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 package McCormick® Slow Cookers BBQ Pulled Pork Seasoning
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup water

1. Place chicken in slow cooker.

2. Mix Seasoning, ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar and water until blended. Pour over chicken. Cover.

3. Cook 5 hours on LOW or 2 1/2 hours on HIGH. Remove chicken from slow cooker.

4. Shred chicken using 2 forks. Return chicken to slow cooker; mix and heat with sauce before serving. Serve on sandwich rolls, if desired.

Test Kitchen Tip: Substitute 3 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs for chicken breasts. Cook 4 hours on HIGH.

Slow Cooker Tip: For best results, do not remove cover during cooking.
