BBQ Pulled Chicken Recipe

BBQ Pulled Chicken Recipe

One of my priorities has been to eat healthier, which means cooking at home and knowing exactly what is going into each meal. I’ve found some recipes that were easy and delicious, and wanted to share it with you. I honestly love pulled pork, but found the BBQ Pulled Chicken recipe in Cuisine magazine’s Slow Cooker Menus and absolutely love this healthier alternative!

I try to do one slow cooker recipe on the weekends, which leaves plenty of room for leftovers. This BBQ pulled chicken recipe is also great for meal prepping!

One of my favorite dishes for summer is BBQ Pulled Chicken recipe. I love pulled pork, but this was a healthier option and I was able to toss coleslaw, too.

BBQ Pulled Chicken Recipe

Prep time for this recipe is about 30 minutes. On low setting in the crock pot, this BBQ Pulled Chicken recipe takes about 5 hours. On high setting, it’s as little as 3.5 hours. This crock pot recipe is perfect for a busy family weeknight!

  • 4 Chicken leg, bone-in
  • 1 tbsp Garlic powder
  • 1 tsp Kosher salt and dried thyme
  • 1 cup Onion
  • 1/3 cup Cider vinegar
  • 3 tbsp Olive oil

For the sauce:

  • 1 tbsp Honey
  • 1 cup Ketchup
  • 1 tbsp Mustard and fresh lemon juice, prepared yellow
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce and low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup Brown sugar, light
  • 6 Kaiser Rolls, toasted
  • 6 cups coleslaw mix

The recipe is so simple. Stir all the ingredients together, cover and cook in the crock pot, then remove the chicken and shred!

This recipe says it makes enough BBQ for 6 rolls. I found that 1 cup coleslaw per roll was way too much and tended to fall off. I would suggest cutting the coleslaw recipe in half. Also for those that are trying to cut the bread out, try wrapping up the BBQ pulled chicken in lettuce wraps. Enjoy!

  1. Yum! I probably should think about pulling out the slow cooker, except that even eating warm food can warm things up too much for me. Still, I’m always looking for a good BBQ sauce recipe. Thanks!

  2. Do you place the BBQ ingredients in as you’re cooking the chicken? Or do you wait to place it in after you have slow cooked the chicken?

    • Hi Jessica, so sorry this comment got lost. I put all these Ingredients in with the chicken:
      4 Chicken leg, bone-in
      1 tbsp Garlic powder
      1 tsp Kosher salt and dried thyme
      1 cup Onion
      1/3 cup Cider vinegar
      3 tbsp Olive oil

      I do the sauce separate.
