Slow Cooker Pulled Chicken Recipe

Slow cooker pulled chicken was made in my new Hamilton Beach slow cooker as part of a collaboration with the Hamilton Beach Corporation. In exchange for writing this post, I received a free slow cooker, but I received no additional compensation. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

You and I both know that preparing fresh meals from scratch every day can be hard work, not to mention stressful. Especially when there are lots of family commitments keeping you busy and away from the house. Heck, some families even find it tough to schedule a time to eat meals together around the dinner table. That’s where slow cookers come into the picture, to take the stress and mess out of preparing dinner. That’s what it did for me in the case of this slow cooker pulled chicken recipe.

Hamilton Beach has sparked a movement to get people back around the dinner table and to be able to enjoy all of the flavors of fall comfort foods, too. I’m pretty confident that using a slow cooker to help with the meal prep is a great way to do it.

I can’t even explain how much I love my slow cooker! Truth is, I never really thought I’d get into using it as much as I have. I mean, it’s sort of bulky and and hard to find a place to store in my tiny kitchen, but now that I’ve saved so much time making easy meals with it, I don’t mind moving things around in my kitchen to make room for it. It’s like my little miracle worker!

The Hamilton Beach 6-Quart Set ‘n Forget Programmable Slow Cooker has been in my apartment for the past month, and it’s been used to make some awesome meals.

There are so many great features to this slow cooker!  Just click here to visit the Hamilton Beach website to learn about what this model has to offer.

My favorite slow cooker recipes to date have been the Slow Cooker Meatball Sandwiches, Slow Cooker Italian Chicken, and Slow Cooker BBQ Sticky Rice. That is, until I made this slow cooker pulled chicken. I used the pulled chicken to put into sandwich buns. I don’t know if it’s because the I used the probe thermometer to make sure that I wasn’t overcooking my chicken, or if it was the sweet smoky combo of the sauce, but this slow cooker pulled chicken really did knock my socks off.

I thought the probe thermometer might just be a fun gadget that didn’t serve much purpose. I was happily surprised to find out how accurate it really is! All I had to do was insert the probe through the hole in the lid and down into the thickest part of the chicken breast. Then I closed and clamped the lid and programmed the slow cooker to tell me when the chicken reached 163 degrees.

FOOD FACT: 165 is the safe cooking temperature for poultry, but due to carryover cooking, I under cook foods by 2-3 degrees.

Slow Cooker Pulled Chicken Recipe on ItsYummi.com

After the timer went off, I opened the gasket sealed lid of the cooker and inserted my manual food thermometer into the same place the probe had been.  Wah-lah… 163 degrees popped up.  Color me impressed!  I put the lid back on and cooked the chicken for another 30 minutes on high to make the chicken easier to pull apart.

If I had wanted to serve BBQ chicken breasts for dinner, the buzzer would have meant that dinner was ready to serve. FYI, cooking 2 pounds of chicken breasts on high took 90 minutes. When the food reaches the proper internal temperature, the cooker switches to a “keep warm” setting. Perfect for when I have to run out of the house unexpectedly.

I’m giving serious consideration to roasting a small turkey or ham in it for Thanksgiving. I totally trust it to cook my dinner to easy peasy, safe food perfection.

Slow Cooker Pulled Chicken Recipe

Prep Time 10 min Cook Time 4 hr Serves 8

Boneless skinless chicken breast is slow cooked with a smoky and sweet barbeque sauce until it's tender and juicy, then piled high onto whole wheat buns for an easy, healthy and delicious weeknight dinner!

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast (approx. 2 large breasts)
  • 2 medium yellow or white onions, peeled and diced

For the BBQ Sauce

  • 3 cups organic ketchup
  • 3/4 cup light or dark brown sugar
  • 3 ounces (1/3 liquid cup) cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 Tablespoons molasses
  • 3 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 Tablespoons yellow mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon liquid smoke
  • 3/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 2 teaspoons sea or Kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked chipotle powder
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder

Directions

  1. Prepare BBQ Sauce

  2. Place all ingredients into a medium sized saucepan over medium heat; stir to combine.
  3. Bring contents to a simmer and cook until sauce thickens and becomes darker in color, about 10-15 minutes.
  4. When refrigerated in a well covered container, the sauce will store well for up to 2 months.
  5. For Pulled Chicken

  6. Place chicken breasts and diced onion into the bottom of a 6-quart slow cooker. Cover with sauce and stir to coat.
  7. Using manufacturer's instructions to operate the slow cooker, cook on high for 3--4 hours or on low for 6-7 hours. Chicken is done when meat thermometer inserted into thickest part of the breast reaches at least 163 degrees F. and chicken is starting to break apart on its own.
  8. After chicken has cooked, carefully remove breasts from cooker and transfer to a cutting board. Use two forks to pull the chicken apart and into shredded pieces. Return shredded chicken to slow cooker and stir into the BBQ sauce. Allow chicken to cook on low for another 15 minutes.
  9. Serving Suggestion Serve on buns, wrapped in flour tortillas, over rice, or on top of a garden salad.

    Hi Becca!
    I like this recipe for pulled chicken. I am always making pulled pork instead. One quick question… if I can’t find chipotle powder, what can I use? I would like to make this next week and freeze a batch for an easy weekday meal.

    • comment-avatar
      Chef Becca January 2, 2015 (4:11 pm)

      Hi Analida! If you can’t find chipotle powder, just use chili powder. They’re virtually the same, except that chili powder is a little less spicy and doesn’t have the smoky undertones. Use a little cumin with it and I think you’ll be happy with the result. 🙂

    Your BBQ sauce sounds delicious — at least once a week I use my slow cooker to make shredded chicken, usually for chicken tacos. Although, I think I might need a new crockpot – mine is over 10 years old and has 3 settings, low/high/off. I think I need to get one with more bells and whistles!

      Thanks, April! I had my last slow cooker for a very long time, and truthfully, until I tried this one from Hamilton Beach, I thought all slow cookers were alike. That is not the case! This one cooks so much more efficiently!

    I would make a beef stew, which would be especially good as the weather is getting cooler.

      That beef stew idea is genius, Dave! Will you please bring a batch to my house? 🙂

    I’d probably make chili first. Perfect season for it!

      Chef Becca October 10, 2014 (9:30 am)

      It’s absolutely the perfect season for chili, Bernadette. In a slow cooker is the ultra easy way to do it, too!

    The Pulled Chicken recipe was a great success. My son asked to put it into the rotation. I followed the recipe exactly and it was perfect.

    Yes to chicken recipes! Beef and pork are so expensive right now.

    Chef Bec! This sandwich looks delicious…like it needs to jump off my computer screen and into my lap right this very instant. In fact, could you just make 2 of them jump into my lap? I’ll need a 2nd one since the 1st will be gone in a matter of seconds. What you believe that I actually don’t own a slow cooker? Yup, ours broke last year…and I haven’t replaced it. But if you keep posting deliciousness like this, you may make me have to go get a new one!

      Chef Becca October 9, 2014 (8:07 am)

      Thanks, Dave! As I was putting this pulled chicken recipe together into sandwiches, I had to ration myself little pieces, just to be sure that there would be enough left over for a late night snack. In other news, NO slow cooker in your house?? I want to cry for you! I wish you the very best of luck in the giveaway, because if anyone could put a slow cooker like this to great use, it would be you! 🙂

    Your chicken recipe sounds great. I made oatmeal in my crock pot before. I could always use another crock pot too.

    Hi Becca- Would you believe that off all the ingredients, I did not have ketchup? Ran out got some and it is now in my old slow cooker. Smells divine already. I just found your site this week and this is my 2nd recipe. I tried your vegetarian minestrone soup. Even my picky one, loved it. Thank you for all the work that you put into this. It is greatly appreciated.

      Chef Becca October 8, 2014 (12:59 pm)

      Your sweet comment has made my heart VERY happy today, Olga. Thank you so much! I hope you love the pulled chicken as much as I did. Oh, and I wish I had known that you needed ketchup, because I have 3 giant bottles of it in my pantry. Every time I go to Sam’s Club I somehow forget that I already have a bottle and I end up buying another one! LOL

    “Woo to the Hoo” indeed!!! What a giveaway!!! I have a mini slow cooker – but other than making fondue in it, we haven’t experimented that much with it – this chicken recipe is inspiration for to to start – but what would be more inspiration is that slow cooker – can I bribe you with chocolate manicotti to pick me?? 😉

    • comment-avatar
      Chef Becca October 8, 2014 (1:00 pm)

      You just stopped me dead in my tracks with 2 simple little words, Shashi… CHOCOLATE. MANICOTTI. Oh em gee. I think you’re on to something… however, I cannot fudge the system, so we’ll just pray extra hard for you to win that amazing slow cooker, m’kay? 🙂

        Shashi October 8, 2014 (1:03 pm)

        I’m having a major chocolate craving – and you had to mention fudge…
        BTW, i did make dairy free chocolate manicotti and topped them with chocolate coconut sauce – plates were licked that night in my house!

        • comment-avatar
          Chef Becca October 8, 2014 (1:11 pm)

          Oops…Sorry about the chocolate reference. I tend to eat, sleep, and breathe the stuff. 😉
          Unfortunately, I can’t share your joy in the other indulgence, because I have a severe allergy to coconut products. There’ll be no plate licking for me in that regard, which is fine, because I really don’t think I want anything but fudge now, too. I’m off to find a can of condensed milk from the back of my pantry! 🙂 #BePreparedAtAllTimes

    I like to make soups and stews in my slowcooker, so I would make taco soup or beef stew.

    Wow Becca, this sounds delicious. Going to try it, on a stove top though. I don’t have a slow cooker. Mi know, hey, I’m from NY remember! Hahaha.

      Chef Becca October 8, 2014 (8:11 am)

      Hahaha, Carolann! I know…you Italian girls need to stove top cook everything. 😉 This recipe will work just fine over there, too <3

    I would make chicken tacos first – they are so easy, and always a huge hit in our house!

      Chicken tacos sounds like an awesome slow cooker dinner, Tammi!

    How ever did you discover I’ve been looking at these programmable beauties? My current slow cooker has been a loyal and faithful subject with its low/high temperature switch, but I require convenience! I would have to make my Chunky Southwestern Turkey Chili! Woohoo 🙂

    • comment-avatar
      Chef Becca October 8, 2014 (8:10 am)

      Woohoo, Deb! I was hoping that there would be someone in the market for an extra special slow cooker like this one. Good luck… and I definitely need your chili recipe in my life!

    I would make seafood chowder with shrimp and crabmeat. It is so creamy and rich.

      Seafood chowder sounds like a fantastic meal for the slow cooker, Natalie!
