Zesty Italian Barbecue Pulled Chicken Sliders

2-3 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts2 12 ounce bottles barbecue sauce (use your favorite)
1/4  cup brown sugar
1/2 Homemade Zesty Italian Salad Dressing (recipe to follow)
slider rolls
dill pickle slices
shredded Monterey jack cheese

Place chicken in crock pot, pour over barbecue sauce, Italian dressing and brown sugar.  Mix together well. Cook 3-4 hours on high.  Stirring occasionally.  Once chicken is cooked, you can use 2 large forks to pull chicken apart.  Allow to cook another 1/2 hour -1 hour to let the chicken absorb the sauce and let the sauce thicken.  Assemble sliders.

To assemble sliders:
Slice open slider rolls (we used 2 per person).   Put 2 heaping tablespoons of pulled chicken on each slider.  Add a tablespoon of cheese, then top with a pickle slice.
