DIRECTIONS

For BBQ sauce: Mix all ingredients together and set aside.

For sloppy joes: Heat oil in a large skillet. Add chicken, Summit County, and salt and saute until chicken is cooked through. Transfer to slow cooker and add reserved BBQ sauce and all remaining ingredients (except buns and optional garnish). Cook on high for 3 to 4 hours; it's done when most of the liquid is absorbed. Adjust seasoning to taste then serve over buns with optional garnish on the side.
