We are just a week away from Memorial Day. It is the annual holiday that typically signals the beginning of summer.  Swimming pools open, picnics in the park, BBQ dinners on the patio and lots of fun in the sun!  A couple of weeks ago I was thinking about BBQ when Laurie at Simply Scratch posted a Barbecue Pulled Chicken Sandwich recipe.  It seems Laurie bought a new crock pot and discovered how wonderfully it cooks meat to be shredded.  I had chicken in the freezer, some homemade BBQ sauce in the frig, a crock pot and an unopened canned of Chipotle peppers in adobe sauce.  Perfect!  Now, just in time for your Memorial Day foodfests, ready … set … go!  You are gonna love how easy and delicious this is.

 

 

 

 

 

I always use chicken breasts, but your favorite pieces of chicken will work wonderfully in this recipe.  Trim off any excess fat from the boneless-skinless chicken and arrange them in the bottom of your slow cooker.

Combine homemade or store-bought barbecue sauce with minced garlic, minced Chipotle (they are HOT, use according to your personal taste.)  I use one, you may want to use more than one.

Pour the sauce over the chicken and cook on high for 3 to 4 hours or until the chicken is fully cooked and falling apart.

Once the chicken is well cooked, turn off the heat to the slow cooker, remove the chicken and shred.

This chicken will be moist and easily pulls apart between two forks. Once shredded return the chicken back to the pot and let cool down slightly.  As this cools the sauce will thicken around the chicken.  Serve on your favorite hoagie or multi-grain bun.

Just in case you like the idea of shredding the chicken but aren’t in the mood for BBQ — check out this recipe for an amazing Chicken Enchilada Casserole.

Have a blessed week and happy cooking!

  1. Nice site, due to health, I’m on a vegan diet right now, but I may be able to use some of your salads or alter some of your recipes. Maybe you could make a new selection for vegans, or put in how to alter some of your present recipes to make them vegan friendly. For example you can use tofu for most chicken recipes. Your blog looks good though and has a lot of variety. Linda

I'd love to hear from you ~ Comments welcome!
