Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Chicken Buns


Don’t be fooled by the lack of ‘sauce’ on these slow cooker BBQ Pulled Chicken Buns, they still pack a BIG flavor, and the kids love them because they aren’t spicy.  Toss the ingredients in the slow cooker in the morning, and with some raw veggies or potato chips on the side you’ll have an easy tasty meal at dinner time.

Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Chicken



1/2 cup ketchup
1/3 cup light brown sugar
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 bottle (12 oz) non-alcoholic beer
2 lbs boneless, skinless, chicken breasts
6 hamburger buns


Spray slow cooker crock with cooking spray.  Put ketchup, sugar, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and spices into crock.  Add beer and stir until combined.

Place chicken in crock, cover and cook on Low for 6 to 8 hours or on High for 4 hours.  There will still be a lot of liquid in the crock.  Shred chicken.
