Crockpot Pulled Chicken Low-Calorie

 

This recipe is a favorite in my house. It gets gobbled up as soon as it’s dinner time. If you’ve ever had a pulled pork sandwich this is very similar, only it’s made with chicken rather than pork. The sauce doesn’t have a strong BBQ taste, but it is very good and great as a sandwich. You can also make this to put on salads or something else if you are trying to skip the bread.

 

Crockpot recipes are essential in our household because we have such a full schedule. The afternoons get crazy with sports and other activities. So, if I don’t plan ahead on those crazy days with a meal that’s ready to eat at dinner time, we end up either grabbing something on the go. If you have days like that as well, you know how expensive that can get very quickly.

This crockpot pulled chicken is an easy go to recipes for us. It really is as simple as tossing everything in the crockpot and not worrying about it until later on. When it’s time to eat, the chicken breasts need to get shredded up, which I do easily with two forks. The chicken is so soft at that point that it shreds very easily. Once the shredded chicken goes back in the sauce, it gets mixed together well. Then, it’s perfect to top on a sandwich bun.

 

Making homemade sauces, like this homemade BBQ, is simple and the flavors are just as good, if not better than the store bought versions. If you like different herbs and seasonings in your sauces, feel free to mix it up as BBQ sauces are very versatile. My air fryer fries are a perfect side dish.
