Sweet BBQ Pulled Chicken

4-5 lbs. chicken parts, bone-in
2 bottles 18 oz. Sweet Baby Rays Sweet Vidalia Onion BBQ Sauce
6-8 oz. can tomato sauce
3 bay leaves
1-2 bulbs of garlic
1 medium onion
3 T. honey
1-2 T. Dry Minced Onion
2 tsp. Basil
1 tsp. Cumin

In 4.5 qt. crockpot, place bone-in chicken (I use a mixture of white and dark meat) - roughly 4-5 lbs. Add in 4-5 cloves garlic, 2 bay leaves, 1/4 medium onion (optional). Cover with water.

Cook on low for 8-10 hours or til meat starts to fall off the bone. Remove meat from water, remove all bones, shred the meat with 2 forks (or your hands if you prefer). Stir in 18 oz. bottle of Sweet Baby Ray's Sweet Vidalia Onion BBQ sauce, 1 can tomato sauce, 3 T. honey, 1 tsp. cumin, 1 T. dry minced onion (use 2 T. if you like a stronger onion flavor), and 2 tsp. basil. Add additional BBQ sauce if desired. (I often add an extra 1/2 bottle).

Serve on bread or toasted hoagie buns.
Servings: 10-12

For chicken stock:
Return bones to crockpot, add 3-4 cloves garlic, 1/4 medium onion, and veggies you like (celery, carrot, peppers, potatoes, etc.), 2 tsp. salt, and cook on low for 6-8 hours or til veggies cook apart.
