Slow Cooker Shredded Barbecue Chicken


A very simple and delicious recipe with only 2 ingredients, cooked in a slow cooker.  Great for parties or a weeknight dinner.

I was first introduced to this recipe when I was in college (what better place to have some easy recipes up your sleeve).  This recipe is perfect for a simple dinner, and it's also a crowd favorite at parties.  This is a great recipe for beginner cooks or anyone who doesn't have a lot of time to prepare dinner.  The ingredients are added to a slow cooker and can cook while away at work.  I don't know anyone who doesn't like this chicken it has pleased even the most picky eaters.


2-3 pounds boneless chicken
2 cups barbecue sauce

That's it.  Seriously, only 2 ingredients.

Place your thawed chicken in the bottom of a slow cooker.  Pour about 2 cups of your favorite barbecue sauce on top (enough to cover the chicken).

Turn the slow cooker to low and cook for about 5-8 hours until chicken is cooked.  Using 2 forks shred the chicken right in the cooker and mix well with the sauce.

Put the chicken on a bun and serve with sides of your choice.  It's great with slaw or Moroccan Raw Carrot Salad.

I like to make homemade buns and barbecue sauce, but this recipe works great with store bought (and it is that much simpler).

Make plenty, you can use much chicken as you like just make sure you use enough barbecue sauce to cover it, because people will go back for seconds.
