Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Chicken Sandwiches

Serves: 8

This slow cooker chicken is so easy to make - everything just goes into the crock pot without any special prep. It's fall-apart tender, juicy and delicious. Serve as is or in buns with the best coconut coleslaw and dill pickle chips.

Dovetailing tip: Double recipe so you will have enough leftover (2 cups) to make Quesadillas for Meal 4.

Yield: 8 (if used in sandwiches)
Prep Time:
Cook Time:
Total Time:


3 pounds (about 5-6 count) boneless, skinless chicken breasts or 4 pounds bone in thighs
1 1/2 cups favorite barbecue sauce
1/2 medium onion, grated (with juice)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
8 rolls or hamburger buns
prepared coleslaw


Stir together all sauce ingredients in a 5-6 qt slow cooker.

Add chicken and turn to coat. Cover and cook on high 3 to 4 hours or on low for 6-7 hours. Chicken is done when cooked through and easy to shred.

Remove chicken to a cutting board and shred each breast using two forks. Place shredded chicken back in the crock pot and stir to coat with the sauce.

Serve on rolls or buns, topped with coleslaw.
