Barbecue Pulled Chicken Sandwiches

Sharing is caring!

Barbecue Pulled Chicken
Tim Riggins went to jail last night. My little heart just couldn’t take it.

Wait, what?!

Yes, that’s right. I have just recently gotten into Friday Night Lights. For someone who is usually obnoxiously punctual, I am rather late to this party. But now that I’m there, I don’t ever want to leave.

Don’t leave me, Tim Riggins. Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose.

Oh, and Shane from The Walking Dead died last night, too (finally). Yes, we are also late to that party. Go figure.

Other things that happened last night: Boyfriend raided the refrigerator, pulled out some things that really needed to be used up, and made some awesome Barbecue Pulled Chicken Sandwiches in the crock pot. This was amazing for two reasons:

Reason A: I was starving.

Reason B: It gave me something to post today, and I didn’t even have to come up with the recipe myself.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I win all the prizes for finding myself a man who can cook.

So I now present you with a stupid-easy recipe, made entirely with items you probably already have in your kitchen.

High fives all-around, y’all.

Barbecue Pulled Chicken Sandwiches
Yield: Enough for a small army (probably 6-8 people)
  • 3 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1¼ cups barbecue sauce (use your favorite!)
  • ¾ cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  1. Place chicken in a slow cooker. Whisk together remaining ingredients and pour over chicken. Cook on high for 2½-4 hours, or on low for 6-8 hours.
  2. Remove chicken from slow cooker and shred in a large bowl (I usually use two forks to do this). Add as much of the sauce as you like to the shredded chicken, stirring to combine. Serve with any leftover sauce, barbecue sauce, shredded cheddar cheese, and/or pickles, if you are so inclined.

I just wanted to leave you a note that I continually come back to this recipe and thought you should know that it is my family's fave!

Thank you for that comment! My husband (the creator) will be so proud to know that. :-)

That is AWESOME. Can he come and give Aaron some lessons, please?! I think this post is a sign, as I just discovered that pulled chicken existed yesterday (a pulled meat recipe that doesn't take SIX HOURS? Booyah!) and now... here's a gorgeously glossy recipe on one of my favourite blogs. Yes! Double thumbs up.

Haha!! You're gonna loooove this recipe. I can feel it. I bet even Aaron could handle it. ;-)

Shopping. Ugh. By the way. What kind of bourbon do I want?

I bought Jim Beam, but Evan Williams is usually a little cheaper and will do. (As in, Alex will take it off your hands when you're done with it.)

Seriously, I wonder if he can do anything with Daddy? Daddy claims that I am intimidating in the kitchen, which could be partially true. Then and again, at least you have some comfort that if what happened to Daddy ever happened to you, at least you could have something to eat. I have a feeling I'll have to live on Sweet Sue and Jiffy cornbread (help me!!). Meanwhile, this looks yummy. I'd have to fix some sweet potato fries to go along with this.

Really, you just better hope he goes first.

And of COURSE he bought sweet 'tater tots to go with. I mean, duh.
