Slow Cooker Pulled Chicken Recipe

Pulled chicken in the slow cooker goes great on sandwiches or sliders. If you are looking for an easy slow cooker meal for football season, this recipe for pulled chicken is perfect for you. This recipe combines homemade BBQ sauce and boneless skinless chicken breasts in the slow cooker. What I did was serve the pulled chicken on toasted slider buns with bread and butter dill pickle chips. This recipe is so easy to prepare and it only takes about 4-5 hours to cook in the slow cooker. Enjoy.
