Slow Cooker Cheesy BBQ Chicken Bacon Sandwiches

Wow it's been so long since I posted in my food blog...does anyone even read it anymore??? ;-)

This is a SUPER easy but crazy delicious meal I've made a couple of times already. It is now in our rotation. This recipe was found through Pinterest...if you want to see what else we're cooking in my house, go check me out!

Slow Cooker Cheesy BBQ Chicken Bacon SandwichesIngredients:
4 chicken breasts (I like leftovers so I used 6 breasts)
1 (16-20 oz) bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce (my favorite is Sweet Baby Ray's, I usually use I think 18 or 20oz)
1 lb bacon strips, fully cooked
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (I don't measure my cheese. We are a cheese-aholic family!)
6-8 large onion rolls/buns

Spray slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray (honestly, I forgot to do this the second time I made it and it made no difference). Place chicken breasts in the slow cooker and pour bottle of BBQ sauce on top of them. Cook on low for about 6-7 hours or high for 3-4 hours. Shred chicken and set aside.
Set oven at 425 degrees. Split onion rolls in half and lay on a large baking sheet covered in foil.

Put some shredded BBQ chicken on the top of half of the bun.
Place 2-3 strips of bacon on top of the chicken and top with a handful of shredded cheese.
Put the baking sheet in the oven and bake for 3-4 minutes (until the cheese is melted and the edges of the bun are golden.
Top with the other half of the bun and enjoy!  YUMMY!
