Pulled Chicken

After I made Aggie's Pulled Pork(delicious), I knew I wanted to make pulled chicken. I wanted an EASY recipe, so I came up with the following-

Ingredients
3 frozen chicken breasts
1/2 bottle bbq sauce
1/4 cup hot sauce
3 tablespoons brown sugar

Directions
Mix bbq sauce, hot sauce and brown sugar. Place frozen chicken breasts into crock pot and pour sauce on top. Cook on high for 3-4 hours (since you're cooking from frozen, you want to make sure you kill any bacteria). Remove chicken breasts to cutting board (chicken should be falling apart) and shred with two forks (or a fork and a knife).


Remove sauce to a separate bowl. Put shredded chicken back into crock pot. Add desired amount of sauce back in, stirring until pulled chicken has desired consistency (some people like it more saucy). Keep crock pot on low until you're ready to serve.


We had one of Josh's good friends over for dinner tonight, so I made Josh and his friend oven fries and pulled chicken sandwiches.


How is your week going? Mine has been busy but good! So far, week has gone like this:
*
Monday: Work, workout (run 4 miles/practice new body attack tracks- 1/2 hour), clean house
Tuesday: Work, workout (taught Body Attack), laundry/iron, real housewives of NJ (loving it)
Wednesday: Workout (Body Pump), work, errands, ??
*
I'm thinking about making some changes to the bloggy. Is there anything you want to see more of? Baking? Veggie dishes? Easy recipes? Weekly workout plans? Let me know ;)

Wow...that looks fabulous! I think you should just blog about whatever you want. It's fun to read a variety of things.

i found really good fake chicken at Whole Foods. I am totally loving the Housewives of NJ!

annie said...

That looks great! I was wondering what temperature you cooked it at? I saw that you put it low and I'm kinda iffy of cooking chicken at a low heat!

K from ksgoodeats said...

I used to LOVE those kind of sandwiches when I ate meat! They were messy but delicious :)

Whatever you choose to blog about, I'll be here!

Balance, Joy and Delicias! said...

Aggie said...

Ok, I love it. What a great healthy version!! I'm totally making this soon.

I love everything you blog about! You really inspire me to think out of the box when it comes to putting meals together...I've made many great plates while thinking of you! What would Erica do? lol!

Pearl said...

Krista said...

I've made pulled pork, but I bet pulled chicken is even better!!!

Lauren said...

Dinner looks like a true southern delight!

I love your blog, but if you are going to make some additons, I would love to see more of your breakfast ideas. I just love breakfast posts, probably because its my favorite meal of the day. :)

Maria said...

Josh would enjoy this. I will have to make it for him and something veg for me:) I love your blog, so don't change it too much:)
I am feeling ok. Still have icky tummy days, but not as bad. Maybe I am just getting used to it though:)
Still trying to figure it all out. Did you lose weight with your issues? I am struggling to keep weight on. Not fun! Have a good night! Thanks for always checkin in!

Esi said...

This chicken recipe looks wonderful and easy! If I can think of any additions I want to see, I will let you know :)

LK- Healthy Delicious said...

I love pulle pork, but never heard of pulled chicken. this looks awesome!

I Run for Fun said...

I must try this recipe. Your pics look gorgeous...my mouth is watering!

Evelyn Fisher said...

Oh my goodness, BBQ is one of the few things I miss about eating meat. Especially since I'm originally from eastern north carolina (where the good stuff originated, believe me, its even on Food Network). Sounds like a busy week, hope you're at least taking some time to enjoy it.

wholefoodswholeme said...

wish i had a crockpot! i've never really had "pulled" anything, feel like i'm probably missig out ;)

Dawn said...

Oh that looks good! I would have put those delish fries right on my sammie and some extra sauce.

amanda said...

you make pulled chicken, something i don't love, look delicious.

desires! i enjoy the recipes. but do what makes you happy. that is what blogging is all about.

GreenDogWine said...

you know i love your easy recipes - those are my fav :)

Erin of Care to Eat said...

Cha-cha-cha-cha changes! I'm down for anything you say or do Erica! I personally love hearing about your life life..like, how you include tidbits about Josh and FRANK! What did you have in mind?
My week is going lovely thanks!
Fahhhhhhh bu lous!

chandra said...

Hey pretty!! How are you?? That pulled chicken looks amazing, I'm going to have to try it!!

elise said...

i guess this is just one of those dishes that cant really be vegetarian-ized...

the consistency of fake meats just isnt the same, and why ruin a good thing. yours looks great!

Yum Yucky said...

My hubby made something similar with left over chicken breast. But all he did was cut it up and slop a bunch of BBQ sauce on it. It looked really nasty and I refused to eat it.

Totally not thought out like your recipe. Yours looks great!

Bridget said...

MMmmm pulled chicken is one of my FAVORITES!!! I can't believe I haven't made it in so so long. Delicious!!! I love your recipes, but I like everything!

Heather McD (Heather Eats Almond Butter) said...

Mmm, I love any sort of meat in pulled form. :)

Sounds like you've been super busy Erica. Congrats to Josh on his graduation. I don't even think I knew he was getting his MBA. Exciting!

I love your blog, but I would like to hear more details about your workouts.

Have a good Thursday and enjoy The Office. :)

Sabrina said...

Thanks for the idea, I was just thinking "What should I make for dinner tonight?" I am going to go home at lunch and throw some chicken and sauce in the slow cooker. We love pulled anything!!

BTW I didn't know you could use frozen chicken in a slow cooker. I had heard that you shouldn't. Anyone know why?

Michelle @ Find Your Balance said...

I wonder if you could do this recipe with a cheaper cut of meat? My mom used to roast a whole chicken, serve the legs/thighs for dinner then tear the rest of the meat out with a fork to make chicken salad. Hmmm. I should try this!

You know Erica, you seem like someone who would really love the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. They just started a distance learning program, or you can go to NYC like lots of people do. Have you ever checked it out?

Erica said...

Sabrina/all- I did some research on the whole frozen foods in a slow cooker and they said at too low a temp, it could allow bacteria to grow? Not sure....but I'm going to adjust my suggestions to only cook on high! Just to be safe.

Melissa @ For the Love of Health said...

ooooh! That looks so good! Yummy!

I love your blog! I don't know what I would want more of or how you should change it :-)

The Blonde Duck said...

That's a great idea! I LOVE that! Ben won't eat pork and loves slow cooked meats.

lauren said...

the pulled chicken and oven fries look unreal. I am going to have to try that. wondering how you did you oven fries?

mtbcy said...

Looks so tasty- can't wait to give it a try! I love quick recipes that don't have too many ingredients :)

CaSaundraLeigh said...

How cool--my mom and I were just talking about pulled pork sandwiches and saying we wanted some! I never ever thought of pulled chicken which sounds even better! And this recipe looks super easy and fast--thanks for sharing! I think it would be cool if you could add more healthy baking since I am a bake-aholic and always looking for inspiration. Have a wonderful night.

burpandslurp said...

I LOVE pulled pork, but never tried it with chicken. interesting! I love your blog the way you have it, keep on with the great recipes! oh, and I'd like to know a bit more about YOU too! :-)

Holly said...

Oooh - I LOVE pulled pork and chicken! It's one of my faves, for sure. I need a crock pot so badly. (um yeah I just need to suck it up - I know they're super cheap!) :-)

I love your blog! I love all of your recipes, you always have such great ideas.

Elyse said...

Mm, I love shredded chicken!! Man oh man, seeing your BBQ posts is making me miss being an undergrad at UNC. It was so easy to get my hands on Carolina BBQ. Out in CA, the BBQ just isn't the same! Your chicken looks delish; can't wait to make it for myself!

Sweetie Pie said...

That chicken looks soooo good! I love almost anything involving barbecue sauce. I'm just getting caught up on my blog reading, and I have to say that you've been cookie making fool lately! They all looked totally delicious. YUM and YUM!!!

Have a great weekend!

burpandslurp said...

you used to live in falls church? how cool! that's so close from here!

kristisummer said...

this looks amazing and a great way to spice up boring chicken. thanks for the recipe.

Bec said...

your pulled chicken looks great i need a slow cooker or crock pot asap!

Sharon said...

Oh wow, that pulled chicken looks mighty scrumptious!

Kristin said...

I was just thinking that I wanted to try pulled chicken! Great that you posted this, I might try it out today since it's so rainy and dreary.

I would also like to see more about your workouts!

teresa said...
