This shredded chicken has a sweet ‘n tangy taste reminiscent of sloppy joes, but it’s WAY leaner and less sugary than your average joe!

Prep: 15 minutes       Cook: 3 – 4 hours on high or 7 – 8 hours on low

Ingredients:
2 1/2 cups canned crushed tomatoes
1/4 cup tomato paste
2 tbsp. red wine vinegar
2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp. honey
1 tbsp. molasses
1 1/2 lbs. raw boneless skinless chicken breasts, halved
1/2 tsp. each salt and black pepper
2 cups chopped onions
2 cups chopped red bell peppers
