Slow Cooker Pulled BBQ Chicken Sandwiches

Pin It
Chris and I were completely unprepared for the last snow day we had (since when does it snow in March?!), so we were rummaging through our freezer and pantry most of the day to find food that would hold us over until we could drive to the store.
Luckily I had some frozen chicken breasts on hand, and since I always have BBQ sauce stored away I decided to make Pulled BBQ Chicken Sandwiches. I didn't even thaw the meat--I just put it in the slow cooker along with some water and BBQ sauce and let it go. We served these on hamburger buns with shredded Cheddar cheese and sliced dill pickles. The pickles were a last minute thought of mine, and they were a delicious compliment to the chicken. I highly recommend adding them if you have some on hand. Enjoy!

Ingredients
  • 2 lbs. frozen boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups BBQ sauce, homemade or store-bought, divided
  • Hamburger buns
  • Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • Dill pickles, sliced thin
Place the frozen chicken breasts, water and 1 cup BBQ sauce in the slow cooker. Cook on high 5-6 hours or low 8-9 hours.

When the chicken is done, shred into pieces using two forks. Add the remaining cup of BBQ sauce and cook until heated through. Add additional BBQ sauce to reach your desired taste.
