BBQ Pulled Chicken


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.


Serving suggestions: 

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!
