Pulled Barbecue Chicken

Pulled Barbecue Chicken Sandwich on plate with green salad

Our Pulled Barbecue Chicken is easy to make. Simply throw the ingredients together, walk away, and voila your main course is waiting for you when you are ready to eat. Good for a family meal or potluck. We like to put in on buns for sandwiches, and use the leftovers for MORE sandwiches and salads.

This recipe makes for less stress at dinner time with the main course already prepared.


2-3 lb Chicken
1 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
1/4 cup Brown Sugar
1 cup Barbecue Sauce (I used Famous Dave’s Rich & Sassy)
1/4 cup Olive Oil
1-2 cloves Minced Garlic
1 tbsp Dijon Mustard
3 tbsp White Wine Vinegar
1/2 tsp Thyme
1/2 tsp Basil
1/2 tsp Oregano
1/2 tsp Onion Powder
1/4 tsp Black Pepper
1 tsp Salt


Lightly salt the chicken breasts and put them in the crockpot. Mix all of the other ingredients together in a separate bowl until well blended then pour over chicken (to save time you can easily substitute 1/4 cup pre-made Italian dressing for all ingredients starting with Olive Oil and beyond). Cook for 3-4 hours. Optional: Remove chicken from crockpot and shred, then return to crockpot for 10-15 minutes. Enjoy!
