Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Chicken - a delicious and flavorful entree that is the perfect solution for a simple weeknight meal.
It's been a couple of years since I last shared my recipe for Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Chicken, so I decided today would be a great day to re-visit and take some fresh photos. I think one of my favorite things about this meal (aside from how yummy it is) is that it is REALLY easy to make, perfect for a busy weeknight. And, pulled chicken is a much healthier option, compared to pulled pork ... which is an added bonus!
Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Chicken
- 2 1/2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast
- 18 ounces of your favorite BBQ sauce (I use Stubb's Sweet Heat)
Step 1: Place the chicken into your slow cooker, and cover with approximately half of the BBQ sauce. Cook for 3-4 hours on the low setting.
Step 2: Remove the cooked chicken from the slow cooker and place on a platter or cutting board. Using 2 forks, gently shred the chicken apart to your desired texture.
Step 3: Add the shredded chicken back into the slow cooker with the original cooking liquid, along with the remainder of the BBQ sauce. Mix well and allow to sit for 10-15 minutes. Serve with your desired toppings and bun - I always go for a huge helping of coleslaw and a soft kaiser bun.
Hope you enjoy!
