Slow Cooker Pulled BBQ Chicken

Who knew a zucchini could add so much to barbecue pulled chicken!


This is probably my favorite pulled meat sandwich recipe - I love the addition of zucchini!

What you need:
  • 1 1/2 cups BBQ sauce
  • 1 cup grated zucchini, raw and peeled
  • 1/4 cup vegetable or chicken broth
  • 2 tbsp. oat bran (if you cannot find this, you can use oats)
  • 4 skinless, half chicken breasts (2 lb.)
  • 6 hamburger buns or English muffins
  1. Preheat slow cooker to desired setting. In slow cooker, mix BBQ sauce with zucchini, broth and oat bran.
  2. Add chicken and toss. Cover. Cook 5 hours on low or 2 1/2 hours on high. For best results, do not uncover during cooking.
  3. Remove chicken and shred using 2 forks. Toss with BBQ sauce. Serve on buns or muffins.
