Wow! I am getting today’s post in just a little late in the day! Today was the first day of our garage sale and I was trying to work too so things were super busy. This recipe for Slow Cook Shredded BBQ Chicken is one I have made many times. Christine has been asking me to make it and I finally did last week. I love how easy this recipe is and I’ve always had great results.
To make it all you need is a 12 oz can of pop, 2 1/2 cups BBQ sauce and about 2 lbs of chicken.
Warm the barbecue sauce and then pour it into your slow cooker.
Add the can of pop and mix. I used Diet Dr. Pepper but I also made it with Diet Coke.
I cooked it on high for 5 1/2 hours and this is what it looked like.
Then, it was time to shred the chicken. I recently saw a tip from another blogger that they saw on Pinterest to use your Kitchen Aid mixer to shred your meat. So, I decided to try it. I dumped all of the chicken into the bowl.
And stirred it around a bit. Mine was a bit too shredded so next time I will mix it for even less time.
I returned the chicken to the sauce in the slow cooker and added some more barbecue sauce. I let the chicken soak up even more barbeque flavor in the slow cooker until we were ready to eat.
What’s your favorite way to make barbecue chicken?
