Slow Cooker Shredded BBQ Chicken

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

I love the slow cooker. I love how the simplest of recipes take little effort and yet taste so good.  This Slow Cooker Shredded BBQ Chicken recipe is one of those. My kids have very busy after school schedules, sports, scouts and other activities.  There are evenings that it’s impossible to have the time to cook as I am too busy being Mum’s taxi.  On these nights we have leftovers, where I make a double batch of dinner the night before, something quick and easy like eggs on toast or a slow cooker dinner.

Slow Cooker Shredded BBQ Chicken

Simply place chicken breasts into the slow cooker, then mix remaining ingredients into a jug, then pour over chicken and cook for 8 hours.  The chicken is very easy to shred after cooking all day.  I poured all the sauce over the shredded chicken, giving it plenty of flavours.


I served it on bread rolls with lettuce and cheese as a quick dinner.


There is so much leftover enough for the kids to have it on a roll for lunch the next day in their school lunch boxes.  I squeezed out some of the juice and put it in one of the compartments of the lunchbox so the kids can then spoon it onto the bun at lunchtime.  This lunchbox is available here.


And then I made BBQ Chicken pizzas for dinner the next night.  You could possibly halve the recipe, but I love the convenience that it can feed us for a few meals!
