Crockpot Pulled BBQ Chicken

Now that fall is here and football season has started it is time to whip out that crockpot and get these game day easy meals ready. If you don’t have a crockpot, I’m not quite sure why not because you NEED ONE! Mama you’re too busy to be standing over the stove let the crockpot do all the work some nights! 


This pulled barbecue chicken is a super easy and tasty meal that you can make into many things I personally love grabbing some Hawaiian rolls and making sliders. Yum! Feel free to make this recipe your own!

Let’s get started! 


Prep Time  

5 minutes  

Cook Time  

6 hours  


  1. 2-3 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast

  2. 2 bottles Barbeque Sauce

  3. 1 whole yellow onion

  4. Desired Seasoning

  5. Crock Pot Liner- Let me tell you these little bags are life savers! It makes storing leftovers super easy and makes cleaning your crockpot a breeze.



  1. Chop onion as desired. I opted to cut my onion in to small pieces so my son would not notice them when eating.

  2. Clean chicken. You should clean your meat well before cooking.

  3. Add onion and chicken breast to crockpot

  4. Season. I used Trader Joe’s 21 seasoning salute,  garlic powder, black pepper, and a small amount of seasoning salt

  5. Add in BBQ sauce. The BBQ sauce you choose is completely up to you. I used the Sweet Baby Rays Sweet and Spicy sauce to give my chicken a little more flavor.

  6. Cook on medium for 6 hours. When cooking with your crockpot the longer your cook time the more tender your meat will be. I’ve found that cooking chicken at 6 hours gives it the perfect tenderness to easily shred.

  7. When there’s about 30 minutes left use two forks or even spoons and gently shred chicken. Cover and let finish cooking.

    TIP: If your sauce is very liquid you may add in cornstarch to thicken.

Serve and Enjoy!
