Well, today’s weather is not warm for sure.. we woke up with snow on the cars and frost on the windshields.
In hope that this is the last cold weather day, I have a recipe for you that is one of our family’s favorite go to dinner recipes during the spring & summertime!
A few years, ago I was looking for a healthier alternative to pulled pork so I decided to give pulled chicken a try. It was hands down delicious and we decided to add it to our weekly menu. It is so easy to throw together and if you need something to bring to a BBQ you won’t be disappointed!
I have tried this recipe a couple of ways… in the crock-pot and on the stove. I enjoy the crock-pot version better but if you are in a time crunch the stove is definitely faster.
BBQ Pulled Chicken
1 1/2 lbs of chicken breast
1 jar of your favorite BBQ sauce
Take out your crock-pot and start the timer to 4 hours on high. Place enough water in the crock-pot to cover the bottom. Mix some about 1/3 cup of BBQ with the chicken and then place the chicken in the crock-pot. Drizzle about 1/4 cup more BBQ sauce on top of the chicken. Close the lid and let it cook! After the 4 hours is up or whenever you are ready, pull & shred the chicken using 2 forks. If the chicken looks dry add more of the BBQ sauce.
I love my bbq chicken served on a bun or a piece of whole grain toast open faced with cole slaw & a pickle! It is also great over a salad or just on a plate as is!
