  1. Place chicken in a large pot with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook until chicken comes off the bone easily, about 3 hours. Make sauce while the chicken cooks.
  2. In a saucepan over medium heat, mix together the ketchup, mustard, brown sugar, garlic, honey, steak sauce, lemon juice, and liquid smoke. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a gentle boil, and simmer for about 10 minutes. Set aside to allow flavors to mingle.
  3. When the chicken is done, remove all meat from the bones, and chop or shred into small pieces. Place in a pan with the sauce, and cook for about 15 minutes to let the flavor of the sauce soak into the chicken. Spoon barbequed chicken onto buns, and top with coleslaw if you like.

I've never done BBQ chicken and was surprised at how good it was. I used 6 chicken breasts instead of whole chickens and cut the mustard to 1/2 cup, otherwise followed recipe exactly and it was...

I cut this recipe in half. Because I used chicken breasts (two cut in half), I was able to use my small crockpot to make this. This turned out well but it seemed to be missing something. Half a ...

This recipe is really yummy!! It gave new life to some leftover chicken breasts. Most importantly it was easy to make the sauce and re-heat the chicken. My picky 9 and 11 year old boys loved it!...

This is the kind of recipe that works really well with leftover chicken which is what I had. I also added pepper jack cheese to the sandwich and broiled for a few minutes. Hearty, quick and good...

My family really liked this in pita pockets. The coleslaw is a must. It really made it taste great. We loved it. I made the recipie for 10 and had enough to freeze for another quick meal.
