Pulled Chicken BBQ Recipe

Updated on May 14, 2015

My Original Recipe for Pulled Chicken BBQ

Pulled chicken BBQ is one of my favorite homemade dishes. I started making it as a healthier version of other barbecue recipes and it stuck as a family favorite. The best part is that it's easy to make and if you make a double batch, it's even more delicious the second day.

I have included my original recipe for the barbecue sauce, as well as a slow cooker version of the chicken barbecue. This recipe is great for lunch, dinner, potluck gatherings and an easy make-ahead dish for parties.
