What’s better than having a lazy Sunday at home while your dinner cooks for you in a crock pot? It doesn’t get much better than that. I personally love the “set it and forget it” mentality of cooking.
This pulled BBQ chicken recipe is one that I keep in my rotation because it tastes delicious and requires very little hands on time. You can either eat it alone, or on a potato bun alongside cabbage slaw. Here is the recipe for my simple purple cabbage slaw recipe.
- 2 lbs. of chicken breast
- 1 yellow onion – diced
- 2 cups of BBQ sauce
- 1 cup of Italian dressing
- 1/2 tsp. of salt
- 1/4 tsp. of pepper
Place 2 lbs. of chicken breast in the bottom of the crock pot.
Dice one large yellow onion and place it on top of the chicken
Add 2 cups of BBQ sauce atop the chicken and onion mixture. You can use any BBQ sauce that your heart desires.
Add one cup of Italian dressing. I like using my homemade Italian recipe.
Add the salt and pepper.
Turn the crock pot on low and cook for four and a half hours. Check half way through and give a stir.
With two forks, gently pull the chicken apart. Stir the entire mixture and serve alongside purple cabbage slaw or atop a potato bun.
