What you should make for dinner tomorrow night

I had playgroup at my house today and, as usual, I was totally unprepared to serve lunch to three of the most wonderful people/fellow moms you could ever hope to meet.  So, when I woke up at 4:30 this morning (WTF?), I began to mentally peruse the contents of my freezer, refrigerator, and pantry while still in bed.  I came up with a complete meal without having to go to the grocery!  Yay!!  I always have boneless skinless chicken in the freezer, so that was a no-brainer.  I live in Memphis, so I also always have a bottle of barbecue sauce in the fridge...I bought a head of red cabbage at the Easy Way the other day...sister schuberts and slider buns in the freezer...barbecue sammies!!  Relief.  Still couldn't go back to sleep, though.

By the way, I do sincerely apologize for the poor quality picture.  It was actually harder to get a picture of this meal than it was to make it.

Into your crock pot:
1 sliced up red onion
However many boneless skinless chicken breasts you need to feed your family
Cover with barbecue sauce and add about 1 1/2 cups beef or chicken stock. 

Set your crock pot on high for four hours or on low for eight hours.  Shred chicken and lift the chicken and onions out of the sauce.  Serve on buns with slaw and the sauce on the side.

1/2 of a red cabbage, thinly sliced
4 green onions, chopped
2 carrots, grated
Dressing: 1 part mayo and 1 part your favorite vinaigrette
Mix together and season to taste with salt and pepper.
