Crockpot BBQ pulled chicken

Classes start this week which means a few things for this blog and me. One, I start cooking for just myself which can be quite boring. Two, I lose my sous chef and best vegetable chopper ever (my most hated part of cooking). But I will persevere and keep making simple, healthy, and delicious meals… even if I am the only one getting to taste the results!

Shredded chicken

This recipe is one of my favorite because it is so simple and I don’t mind eating it for days in a row (cooking for one means a lot of leftovers).

The great part about this crockpot recipe is you can put the chicken in frozen and it comes out just as delicious. No more worrying about pulling the chicken out the night before!

If you’re feeling fancy you can make your own BBQ sauce, or maybe chop up some onion and garlic to add a little extra flavor.

Shredded chicken sandwich

I like to make open face sandwiches with the shredded chicken and melted cheese, but it is just as good on top of a salad, with a side of cornbread or simply by itself. Don’t be afraid to experiment.

No nutrition info on this one, it is too dependent on the type of sauce you use and how it is served. It isn’t the healthiest meal, but its great for those days you want something filling and homemade yet don’t want to cook.

Crockpot BBQ pulled chicken

  • Chicken breasts
  • BBQ sauce (homemade or store bought)
  • Toppings: cheese, lettuce, bacon, bread, etc.

Spray a crockpot with nonstick spray. Place chicken breasts in crockpot and pour in BBQ sauce until majority of chicken is covered. Cook on low for 7-8 hours or high 3-4 hours. About an hour before chicken is done, take chicken out and shred with two forks. Return to crockpot for last hour of cooking. Enjoy with toppings of your choice!
