  • Slow Cooker


  • 1 c. barbecue sauce use your favorite brand
  • 3 T. brown sugar
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 t. paprika
  • 6-8 chicken thighs and/or breasts boneless, skinless
  • 3 tomatoes medium - large
  • 1 green pepper
  • 4 eggs hard boiled
  • 1/2 pound bacon cooked and crumbled
  • 1 1/2 c. cheddar cheese shredded
  • 10 c. romaine lettuce chopped


  • In a slow cooker, mix barbecue sauce, brown sugar, garlic, and paprika together. Add chicken and coat it with the mixture. (Use a slow cooker liner or spray the cooker with cooking spray.) Cook on low for 4-5 hours. (Meat thermometer should read 165 degrees or higher.)
  • While chicken is cooking, chop the remaining ingredients.
  • Tip: For cooking large amounts of bacon, we LOVE to use our oven. We line a baking sheet with foil and turn the oven to 350 degrees. Works wonderfully well!
  • Remove the chicken from the slow cooker. Shred. Mix in some of the sauce.
  • Arrange the fixings on a platter. Let everyone "build" their own salad. Top with a dressing of your choice.
