Pulled Chicken Sammies


Get out the slow cooker!

I decided to go lazy tonight with something that was absolutely delicious, and absolutely easy for dinner.  My 3 year old is gobbling it up while watching Coraline, and my husband… Well he’s not home yet so he hasn’t gotten to try it.   We love pulled pork in this house; we rarely ever make it but we love it!   We had seasoned pork chops for dinner last night though and I really don’t want to eat a pig two days in a row so I decided to try a homemade sauce and chicken in the slow cooker to make a variation of the pork.

Pulled chicken Sammies

pulled chicken sammies

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 2 tbsp mustard
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp worchestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • cayenne and hot chilli powder to preference
  • couple splashes hot sauce

throw it all in the slow cooker and cook for 6 hrs on low.  I put them on 4 hrs on high, but that was because after preparing everything I forgot to turn the darn thing on.

After the cooking time is done they easily pull apart with forks.  At this point if you want them really saucy you can make another batch of the sauce, put it with the recently pulled chicken and cook another 30 minutes, if you prefer it less saucy, you’re done.
