Prep Time:15 minutes
Cook Time:2 hours
Total Time:2 hours 15 minutes
Crockpot BBQ Chicken
1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon ground paprika
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2/3 cup bbq sauce, divided
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
2 cups favorite slaw mix
1/4 medium red onion, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon pickle juice
1/2 tablespoon lime juice
salt, to taste
4 hamburger buns of choice
1/4 cup bbq sauce (or more to taste)
pickles, to taste
First, prepare your crockpot bbq chicken. Mix together chili powder, garlic powder, paprika, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Then, season both sides of your chicken breasts.
Spray the bottom of your crockpot with nonstick cooking spray and then add your chicken breasts.
Pour about 1/3 cup of bbq sauce on top of your chicken breasts (save the rest for later) and cover.
Let cook for around 2-3 hours on high for 4-6 hours on low.
Once the chicken has fully cooked, use 2 forks to shred.
Keep the liquid from the chicken and bbq sauce in the crockpot and add about 1/3 cup more bbq sauce and 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar. Mix sauce and shredded chicken until everything is coated.
Next, prepare slaw by mixing together all slaw ingredients.
Put together your bbq chicken sandwiches by placing a generous amount of slaw on the bottom of your bun and then about 1/4 lb. of the shredded chicken. Add about 1 tablespoon more of bbq sauce (or more, if desired), and a few pickles. Put the top on your chicken sandwich and enjoy!
