Crock Pot Recipe 8

Pulled Chicken Sandwiches

*This recipe provides 8 servings.*


1) 2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
2) 3 cups thinly sliced onion
3) 1 cup ketchup
4) 1 teaspoon canola oil
5) 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
6) 2 tablespoons molasses
7) 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
8) 1 teaspoon ground cumin
9) 1 teaspoon onion powder
10) 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
11) 3/4 teaspoon hot sauce
12) 8 whole-wheat hamburger buns, toasted


1) Place onion in crock pot. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add half of chicken, cook approx. 4 mins. on each side, until golden brown. Place chicken in a single layer on top of onion. Repeat this procedure with remaining chicken.

2) Combine ketchup and the next 7 ingredients (through hot sauce); then pour over chicken. Cover and cook on low for 4 hours until chicken is tender and sauce is thick.

3) Remove chicken from crock pot. Shred chicken with 2 forks (more efficient for pulling apart), and stir into sauce. Spoon 3/4 cup chicken mixture onto bottom of each bun; then cover with bun tops!
