Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Chicken

Can you believe I’ve never done a slow cooker BBQ chicken sandwich recipe before? We love BBQ, but since we stopped eating pork about 9 years ago, we’ve pretty much gone without. Now, these are sweeter than the Southern pork sandwiches with vinegar base that we used to love, and eventually I will try to find a recipe just like that for chicken {I know there are plenty out there} but in the meantime this is really good!

Ok, so technically this isn’t pulled chicken. If you’re not sure what the difference is, it’ s my understanding that it’s meat from the butt of the chicken  (not any of the yucky parts- eew). I used pulled in the title because most people relate that word to the style of sandwich, be it pork or chicken; i.e. shredded BBQ.

Of course, I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts, which were shredded once cooked using two forks.

BBQ Chicken

4 to 6 chicken breasts

1 (12 oz) bottle of BBQ sauce

1/2 cup of Italian dressing

1/4 cup brown sugar

2 Tbsp. Worcestershire

In crock pot, place chicken breasts. Combine the remaining ingredients in a bowl and then pour over the chicken. Cook for 3 to 4 hours on high, or 6 to 8 hours on low. Shred chicken once cooked through and return to crock pot. Serve on lightly toasted whole wheat sandwich rolls.

It doesn’t get any easier than that! Enjoy 🙂
