Shredded Chicken Sandwiches

1 Tbs. butter
1 onion, diced
1 stalk celery, chopped
1 cup chicken broth
3 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1 Tbs. cornstarch
1/2 cup milk
salt and pepper to taste.

Melt butter in a saucepan and sauté onions, celery and 1 Tsp. chicken broth. Continue to sauté for 5 minutes. Add chicken and remaining broth. ( At this time you could add this mixture to a slow cooker and cook until chicken is very tender.) Otherwise, simmer on stove until chicken is tender.

Remove chicken from pan (or slow cooker) and allow to cool until it is easily handled.

Shred chicken, return to pan (slow cooker) and bring to a simmer. Combine cornstarch and milk in a small bowl. Slowly add to chicken mixture, simmering 5 minutes. Continue to simmer and shred chicken until mixture has thickened but still moist, approximately 8-10 minutes. Season with salt an pepper.

You may also add a half cup of barbeque sauce or another sauce of your choice.
