Pulled Chicken Sandwich

I never stop looking for easy, tasty meals that are ready when I come home for dinner after work.  This has to be my favorite pulled chicken recipe I've tried.  I put it in the slow cooker at night, then the fridge and just heated it at night, but if you are at home doing it during the day would be even easier.

It's not spicy, just flavorful!

Adapted from Alida's Kitchen

1 pound chicken breast, boneless, skinless
1 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons dijon mustard
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 teaspoons Sriracha sauce (or regular hot sauce), adjust to taste
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon ground cumin
4 whole wheat buns, toasted
1 cup broccoli slaw (optional, for topping)

Put raw chicken in a slowcooker.
Whisk the ketchup, mustard, vinegar, sugar, hot sauce, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika and cumin until combined. Pour over chicken and cover, cook on low for 6-8 hours.  Shred chicken with 2 forks.

Divide chicken evenly among buns and top with pickles or slaw, as desired. Serve immediately.

  1. Love pulled chicken. You can acheive a less glam result in just over and hour by boiling the chicken in a mix of: water, apple cider vinegar, jarred bbq sauce, hot sauce, an onion & garlic clove run thru food processor. Boil until cooked through, shred, return to boil, uncovered until sauce cooks down. :-) also love it on a baked potato.
