BBQ Chicken Pulled Sandwiches

It took me YEARS (literally YEARS) to even entertain eating barbeque anything.  I didn't like the taste of it or anything.  Then I started working in a banquet kitchen that used Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce, and that was it--I was undone.  I cannot get enough of that BBQ sauce!!!  It's sweet and tangy but not too smoky--delicious!!!  Anyway, it was the night-before-the-grocery-store and all I had was some chicken and BBQ sauce.  The rest is history!

{With just two of us, it's kinda pointless to buy hamburger buns}

{Just mix 1 bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce and chicken in a crockpot}

{It was very runny after cooking, but shredding the chicken and letting the mixture cool thickened the sauce up.  If you can't wait for the BBQ goodness, then thicken with cornstarch or roux}

BBQ Chicken Pulled Sandwiches

Makes 4 servings

8 chicken thighs, bone-in and skinless
20 oz of your favorite BBQ sauce (Sweet Baby Ray's is a great one to try!)
  1. Place chicken in a crockpot.
  2. Pour BBQ sauce on top, lifting chicken to make sure they are bathed in BBQ goodness!
  3. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
  4. Turn crockpot off and allow to cool for about 1 hour.
  5. Shred chicken and stir.
  6. Serve on bread or buns.
You can do the same method with pork to get pulled pork sandwiches.  Grilling the chicken or pork beforehand to get a bit more smoky flavor--extra flavor bonus!
