This simple BBQ pulled chicken cooks entirely in the crockpot and hungry game-day guests won’t believe that it comes together with only 2 ingredients!
Hi. My name is Sarah and I freaking love my crockpot.
Hello, easy-peasy barbecue pulled chicken. I like you too.
Oh, you like all these things too? Yay! Let’s be friends.
Because we’re all friends here, I’m shoving TWO things in ‘yo face today. The first one is pretty obvious → THIS CHICKEN. (you’re welcome)
#2. The giveaway. I teamed up with several amazing bloggers and we’re all giving away a $200 Amazon giftcard! All the deets are at the end of this post, so keep reading.
For now? We’re gonna talk ’bout the pulled chicken. And my crazy-obsessive love for my crockpot and barbecue sauce. Get comfy.
I feel almost guilty to call this pulled chicken a recipe, simply because it is SO DANG EASY. Two ingredients! Crockpot! I’m sorry, but you know I’m a sucker for the simple.
Seriously though, your crockpot literally does ALL the elbow grease, back-breaking work for game-day with these pulled chicken sammies. Ha.
Did you hear that? I think it’s me squealing a little bit over here….
Go to the great effort to throw some chicken breasts and barbecue sauce into the labor-saver (i.e. crockpot) and then let ‘er cook low and slow….
….4-6 hours later…that gorgeous chicken should be perfectly tender and your house should smell more or less amazing. Shred up that chicken while it’s still hot and then back into the crockpot it goes for about 1 more hour. At this point, you may choose to add more barbecue sauce to your pulled chicken, depending on how thick/liquidy you like it.
P.S. You may use whatever brand of barbecue sauce you like, but can I just say that homemade is so. darn. amazing? This is the only BBQ sauce I use! It’s spoon-in-the-jar worthy.
The sauce. The melt-in-your-mouth-tender chicken. The bread. GAH. Sogood.
Jazz up your personal sandwich with ALL the works your heart desires. I’m so boring and I usually just pile on the extra BBQ sauce onto mine…..
Like a lot. Hey, I like my sauce ok?
Now this is a sandwich. I am obsessed.
Your game-day guests will be obsessed. And you will feel like a crockpot-BOSS!
Yeah, you’re gonna want to invest in a napkin or 20. Things are ‘fixin to get deliciously-messy. 😉
2-Ingredient Slow-Cooker BBQ Pulled Chicken
- 3 lbs chicken breasts
- 2 to 2-1/2 cups barbecue sauce*
- Buns for serving
Place chicken breasts in a 3-qt slow-cooker. Pour 2 cups barbecue sauce over top. Cover and cook on low 4-6 hours or until chicken registers 165F.
Transfer hot chicken to a large cutting board. Using two forks, shred chicken. Transfer shredded chicken back to slow-cooker and if desired, pour an additional 1/2 cup barbecue sauce over top. Cover and continue cooking chicken on low 1 hour to let the flavors meld together.
Serve pulled chicken in warmed and split buns.
Recipe Notes*Feel free to use your favorite kind of barbecue sauce. **As the recipe calls for, you may use an additional 1/2 cup barbecue sauce after shredding the chicken to give it more flavor. This is optional.
