Every summer our butcher shop makes heaps of their own BBQ sauce. We, of course, head down and buy a giant vat of sauce and cook with it all summer long – and sometimes into the winter. So, I’m always looking for new ways to use it up.
We all know how great pulled pork is, but Christopher and I had never tried pulled chicken before tonight. It’s not nearly as moist as pork (I’m sure using chicken thighs instead of breasts would solve that problem), but slathered with sauce and topped with onions, it was quite good. We’ll definitely make this again!
1lb. Chicken breasts
1 Onion, cut into half rounds
1 1/2C. BBQ Sauce
Salt, pepper and granulated garlic
Buns of your choice
Slice onion and add to empty crock pot. Place chicken on top and season with salt, pepper and granulated garlic (to taste).
Add 1C. of BBQ sauce and stir to combine. Set slow cooker to 6-hours (med-high). Cover and do not peek!
After 6 hours, drain out most of the extra liquid, shred chicken with 2 forks and add in the other 1/2C. BBQ sauce. Keep warm in crock pot until ready to use.
