How To Make Delicious Slow Cooker Pulled BBQ Chicken

These are ideal for larger gatherings and parties. You can make a great big pot of them and serve a ton of people. Most people like chicken, so you can rest assured that they are going to get eaten. Even if you have some leftover, you can freeze it and save it for later. This will hold in your ice box for a quite some time. I will freeze smaller portions so that I can take out just enough for one or two when I want a sandwich for lunch. Check out what they are saying about this recipe over at Cravings Of A Lunatic:

“I love pulled chicken. It’s so easy to make and it’s absolutely and utterly delicious.”

With just a few simple ingredients, you can be on your way to a tasty treat!



4 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1 sweet onion, diced or cut into large chunks

½ cup Domino brown sugar

¼ cup Wish Bone Italian dressing

1 cup Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce, divided in half (1/2 for cooking, ½ for finishing)

2 teaspoons minced garlic

2 tablespoons honey

1 teaspoon smoked paprika

1 teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon pepper



Place chicken in slow cooker.

Toss cut up onions over top of the chicken.

Combine brown sugar, Italian dressing and ½ of the BBQ sauce together in a medium size bowl. Whisk until smooth. Add garlic, honey, and spices. Whisk until combined. Pour over chicken and onions.

Place lid on slow cooker. Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours, or until chicken is tender enough to pull apart with forks.

Use forks to shred the chicken, or use a hand mixer with beaters to shred the meat. This technique works beautifully for shredding pulled meats.

Add remaining sauce to the slow cooker with the meat, and cook just until it heats up. I usually heat it all up in a cast iron pan for a few minutes to really bring it all together and save time. You do whatever works for you. Once it’s hot and well combined you’re good to go. Time to chow down.

Place on slider buns or hamburger buns. Eat it plain or with a slaw. Your choice.

Serve with a big old Pulled BBQ Chicken loving smile!






Quick Tip: Serve on your favorite hoagie roll.
