shredded bbq chicken

Here is another one of our favorite recipes. And it’s a true no-brainer! Enjoy.

Simply put chicken breasts into a crockpot with about an inch of water, and pour your favorite barbeque sauce over it. Cook on low 6-8 hours, or until done. Remove the chicken from the pot, and place into a large bowl. Using two forks, pull the cooked chicken apart until it’s nicely shredded. Pour more BBQ sauce over and mix it all up well.

Good by itself, or served on bread. Try it with this homemade BBQ sauce recipe!

    A lot of times we’ll take the leftover meat from a fryer chicken dinner and simply add BBQ sauce to it. Serve it over egg noodles. YUM! LOVE BBQ chicken!!!

    Just a heads up for anyone who is thinking about trying this one!
    Two words–TRY IT!

    My family had the privilege of trying it a few days ago, at Kendras. My kids are now begging for me to make it, so I will be dusting off my crock pot in the morning! Now I need to get the delish BBQ recipe.:o)
    Thanks Kendra!

    can you recommend another way to cook it? I don’t have a crock pot right now? thanks.

    You could also boil the chicken (breasts) until tender, shred it into a pot and cover it with bbq sauce, then cook over low, stirring, until heated through. It won’t be *quite* as tender or flavorful, but it’ll still be good. You might also try it in a dutch oven, if you have one.
