BBQ Slow Cooker Pulled Chicken
Tender, flavour-filled, melt in the mouth BBQ pulled chicken, made in the slow cooker with no effort at all!
Servings: 8 people
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 4 large chicken breasts - about 750g
- 1 tsp ground pepper
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1 cup BBQ Sauce - about 240 ml
Pour the oil into the slow cooker pot use a pastry brush or piece of scrunched up kitchen paper to oil it to help stop the chicken sticking.
1 tbsp olive oil
Cut the chicken breasts into 2 or 3 pieces length wise and add to the slow cooker pot.
4 large chicken breasts
Add the salt and pepper and toss the chicken in it.
1 tsp ground pepper, 1 tsp sea salt
Pour over the BBQ sauce and give everything a quick stir to coat the chicken.
1 cup BBQ Sauce
Put the lid on the slow cooker and cook for 3–4 hours on high, or 5–6 hours on low.
This shredded chicken is perfect for bulk cooking. Once cooked, remove from the cooker and let the chicken cool before packing into air tight boxes.
Fridge – BBQ pulled chicken will keep in the fridge for up to 4 days.
Freezer – You can keep this slow cooker BBQ pulled chicken in the freezer for 4–6 months. Beyond this, you may lose some texture and flavour. Allow frozen pulled chicken to defrost on the counter top for a few hours, or in the fridge overnight.
Reheating – Reheat to piping hot before serving. I nearly always do this in the microwave. You can also reheat in a small sauce pan on the hob, stirring well (add a little water if necessary), or in a tightly covered oven poof dish in a medium oven for 15–20 minutes. You may need to adjust the time for larger quantities.
