Crockpot BBQ Pulled Chicken

Sometimes you just have to use your good old fashioned crockpot to get a recipe just right. I love being gone all day and coming home to the smell of a home cooked meal. This one is perfect for those who want a BBQ inspired dish without having to actually barbecue.

I’ve said it before and I’ll keep saying it, chicken thighs have so much more flavor than chicken breasts. Can you make this with chicken breasts? Sure. I don’t recommend it though.

How adorable is this crockpot!? I’m tempted to buy it but I already have 2! How many crockpots is too many? Asking for a friend….

This is great on a bun or some traditional bread. Coleslaw would make it even better, I just didn’t happen to have any when I made it last.

As always you’ll find the macros for this chicken below and in MyFitnessPal! Just search Stay Fit Mom, followed by the recipe name. I hope you love it!
