Recipe for 6
6 frozen, skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup Worcestershire Sauce
1 (12 oz) bottle BBQ sauce (pick your family’s favorite – we like smoky flavors and chutney)
1/2 cup onion, diced
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (IF you like it spicy and it goes well with your BBQ sauce).
Place the chicken breasts in the crock pot. Mix the brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, BBQ sauce, onion and soy sauce in a bowl and pour over the chicken. Add red pepper flakes about an hour before you plan to serve. Let the mixture cook for 6 and 1/2 hours on high or 5 hours on low, depending on your particular crock pot. Using two forks, gently shred the chicken breasts and let the sauce mix in thoroughly. There will be extra sauce, so put some aside to add to the chicken if sandwiches are being made.
You can use the leftover chicken (if there are leftovers) for salads, too. We like making homemade pizzas with the pulled chicken and sauce, a bit of cilantro and a generous topping of mozzarella cheese. YUM! Hope you enjoy our variation of Crock Pot Pulled Chicken!
