Crockpot BBQ Pulled Chicken

Hello everyone!  I have been doing some maintenance on my blog and found that, by far, the most popular posts are about crockpot recipes.  Makes sense.  People are busy and want easy-to-make dishes that are ready and waiting at dinner time.  So, I'll share another one.  Bonus, this one is not only delicious, but low-fat, too!  Woo-hoo!  Plus, it's really easy.  With just a few ingredients, you'll make something the whole family will love.


2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 cup BBQ sauce (I love Sweet Baby Ray's)
1 cup chicken broth
1 small onion, quartered
1 stalk celery, quartered
salt/pepper to taste (or seasoned salt)

Season the chicken with salt/pepper.  Put it in the crockpot.

Place celery and onion on top of the chicken.  Whisk BBQ sauce and broth together well and pour on top of chicken.

Place the lid on the crockpot and cook on high for 3 1/2 hours.  (I have not tried this on low, but you could probably cook it on low for 6-7 hours)

After 3 1/2 hours on high, remove the chicken to a plate and shred with two forks.

Discard the onion and celery (or eat it if you'd like).  Then, place the shredded chicken back into the sauce in the crockpot and stir well.

Let sit a few minutes before serving on buns.

This is even better the next day!  And you will be surprised how much meat you get from 2 chicken breasts!

My family gave me the thumbs up on this one.  My son says when everyone is quiet at the table it means the food is good (too busy eating to talk).  Tonight, only the sound of napkins wiping mouths.  It's a keeper!
