3.     Cover, and cook on “low” for 8 hours.
4.     Shred chicken and return to slow cooker to mix with remaining BBQ sauce.

I really don't recommend making this ahead of time.  If you want any easy fix though, here is a simple mix......just add cabbage and mayonnaise!  


Make-Ahead Biscuits
  • 4 cups flour
  • 2 Tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 3/4 cup milk


 1.     Mix dry ingredients together. Add in the butter and mix until crumbly. (If you have one, you can use a KitchenAid or food processor to save time and effort). Add in the milk and mix until a ball forms.
2.     Roll out onto a floured surface and cut into biscuits.
3.     To Freeze: Freeze on a cookie sheet for 1-2 hours. Then remove and place in a airtight freezer bag.
4.     To Bake: Pull the desired number of biscuits out and let thaw for 30 minutes to an hour. Bake at 450 degrees for 8-12 minutes. You can bake them straight from the freezer but they won’t rise much.
