Who doesn’t like Crock Pot Pulled Chicken? This one is SOOOO easy! And it tastes even better for leftovers the next day! 🙂 We make this for football tailgating parties or like today, something easy to munch on all day when it’s raining outside and there is football on TV to watch. Add slider rolls, coleslaw or potato salad, and baked beans and you have a FEAST!!
Brown Sugar Bourbon Pulled Chicken via the handy Crock Pot!
This recipe makes enough for 4 (or 2 who enjoy leftovers).
2 frozen chicken breasts
1/2 bottle Kraft Original BBQ sauce (I use the LIGHT version so I won’t feel guilty about having a beer)
1/2 package McCormick Grill Mates Brown Sugar Bourbon (hence the name) marinade
Maker’s Mark Kentucky Bourbon (or your favorite bourbon whiskey)
Toss 1/4 bottle of BBQ sauce and the chicken breasts in a crock pot. Sprinkle the marinade over the exposed chicken and let cook under low heat for 4-6 hours. Use a fork to pull the chicken into shreds. Add the remaining BBQ sauce and 1 teaspoonful of bourbon and let the chicken soak it all up for another 1/2 hour or until the delicious smell forces you to serve it up.
See, I told you it was easy! 🙂
We love the Martin’s Potato Slider Rolls from Publix, but any type will do. If you prefer a deeper whiskey flavor, feel free to add more bourbon to taste. Make it yours. Enjoy!
