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.

Pulled Chicken Sandwich

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.




  1. It may be 6am west coast time, but I’m ready to fire up the ol’ Hulu and watch FNL and TWD! Now that I’ve cylced my way through Grey’s, I’m in serious need of a new obsession. Gimme obsessiiioooooon! Hats off to you for snagging a man who can cook. They say the way to a man’s heart is through his belly, but…uh…the way to my heart is through my belly, too. 😉 Must crock pot barbecue the shhhh out of chicken!

    1. Seriously, you’d love FNL for sure, probably TWD (although sometimes I have to shut my eyes when it gets a little gory). And i’m with you on that belly-heart connection.

  2. We’re always a season (or maybe 3) behind on shows, which sucks because the internet has no sympathy for us and spoilers abound. I guess that’s our punishment for being late. And lame. Also? Nom nom nom.

    1. Yep. I already know what happens in pretty much every show I watch EVER. Except the Bachelor/ette. Because that’s the only thing I get obsessive about when it is actually on the TV.

      Lame. Whoops.

    1. Oh, and yes! Get thee a slow cooker! Post haste! (You could totally do this on the stove, too, I just like being able to walk away and forget about the slow cooker and not have to babysit the stove.)

  3. So jealous that your manfriend cooks, and cooks well (I mean, my dear Elliott, you make really good grilled cheese!). Also I don’t watch either of those shows so I have no idea what you’re talking about, but I am slowly catching up on Revenge and I’M SHOCKED BY ALL THE DRAMA.

    1. I mean, grilled cheese is pretty darn important… 😉

      YES. I watched Revenge over the summer and HOLY DRAMA. Makes your head just spin right round! Also, that dude. SHOOT! What’s his name?? The friend one. With the floppy hair in season 1. Crap. Anyway, love him.

  4. 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.

      1. I originally was thinking sweet tater fries, but now I’m thinking bourbon baked beans. I didn’t know they made sweet tater tots. Daddy would go wild. Shipping tomorrow for all of this.

  5. Hahaha umm can we trade?? Mine is a pretty good dishwasher but I could definitely use an extra cook 🙂 AND these look fabulous. I want this for dinner tonight.

  6. 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.

  7. 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!
