Easy Supper For Hot Summer Night

I made a crockpot chicken which is a great way to  cook a chicken and not have to turn on the oven in the summer heat.  The only thing k-ster and I don't like about it is that it stinks up the whole house like chicken, even with the windows open.  I'm thinking of doing it on the patio next time.

Once it cooled enough to take off all the meat, I chopped up some of it and mixed it with barbeque sauce.  I didn't heat it because I thought it might taste pretty good cold.  And it did. If that grosses you out, heat it before you put it on the buns.

I put it on one of these amazing rolls and then made a broccoli slaw to go with it.

(I get zero points for style here because I know nothing about how to present food for photos!)

It was one of those meals that taste good because they are cold and it's really hot out!

Broccoli Slaw:
(I use the Manual Food Processor for all of this except the carrots)
one head of broccoli, chopped 
1/2 can of pineapple, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
about a cup of dried cranberries
one container of plain, greek yogurt
about 2 T of mayonnaise
1/3 c. of sugar

Mix and enjoy!
