Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Chicken: fall-apart tender, juicy, sweet, so satisfying and so delicious. Serve the shredded chicken in buns as a sandwich, on a side of rice, mashed potatoes or on a slice of bread.

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless (skinless, trimmed of fat - about 3 lbs)
  • 1 cup BBQ sauce (I use Kraft Sweet Honey)
  • 1 small yellow onion - finely grated (with juice)
  • 2 tablespoons apple juice
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable or canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine salt

Instructions

  1. In a 5 or 6 qt slow cooker combine and stir sauce ingredients: 1 cup BBQ sauce, 1 small yellow onion (finely grated, with juice), 2 tbsp apple juice, 1 tbsp vegetable or canola oil, 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce, 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/4 tsp fine salt.
  2. Add 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (trimmed of fat – about 3 lbs) to slow cooker and turn to coat.
  3. Cover with lid and cook on high for 3-4 hours (or low 6-7 hours). (I did 3 hours). Chicken is ready when cooked through and easy to shred.
  4. Remove chicken to a cutting board and shred each breast using couple forks. Transfer shredded chicken back into crock pot and stir to coat with sauce.
  5. Serve in buns as a sandwich, on a side of rice, mashed potatoes or on a slice of bread.
