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!
Place all ingredients into a medium sized saucepan over medium heat; stir to combine.
Bring contents to a simmer and cook until sauce thickens and becomes darker in color, about 10-15 minutes.
When refrigerated in a well covered container, the sauce will store well for up to 2 months.
Prepare Slow Cooker Pulled Chicken
Place chicken breasts and diced onion into the bottom of a 6-quart slow cooker. Cover with sauce and stir to coat.
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.
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.
Serving Suggestion Serve on buns, wrapped in flour tortillas, over rice, or on top of a garden salad.
