Spray the insert of a crock pot lightly with Pam. Lay the raw chicken breasts in the bottom of the liner in a single layer, overlapping the edges if necessary to make them all fit. Sprinkle with salt and black pepper. Season to taste with garlic powder, lemon pepper, and all-purpose seasoning. Pour the two bottles of barbecue sauce over the top and cover. Turn heat to high and cook for 4 ½ to 5 hours until chicken is totally done and fall-apart tender. Using two forks, shred the chicken in the sauce. Serve hot on hamburger or slider buns.
