slow cooker pulled chicken sandwiches
Oh, man, these sandwiches are good! I first posted them a few years ago, but I decided they needed an update post with some new pictures! It was the perfect excuse to make them again, and I had forgotten how delicious they are. The homemade barbecue sauce is sweet and tangy, and the chicken comes out juicy and super flavorful. I love that it’s so low key and easy, too. It just takes a minute to whisk the sauce together and spread it over the chicken, and then it cooks on its own all afternoon and is delicious by dinnertime. It’s the perfect hearty dinner for a busy night!
Slow Cooker Pulled Chicken Sandwiches
1 small to medium yellow onion, thinly sliced
2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast (I used 3 breasts)
1 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
2 tablespoons molasses
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
Scatter the onions in the bottom of the slow cooker. Place the chicken breasts on top. In a medium bowl or large measuring cup, whisk together the ketchup, vinegar, mustard, molasses, onion powder, cumin, garlic powder, Tabasco, and salt. Pour the sauce over the chicken, spreading to cover the chicken. Cook on low 5-6 hours. Shred the chicken with two forks and mix well with the sauce. Serve on rolls and enjoy!
