Recipe: Honey Mustard Pulled Chicken Sandwiches (slow-cooker)

Another slow-cooker recipe…what can I say, these are too easy.  I love cooking chicken breasts in the slow cooker because they always come out so juicy and flavorful.  I prefer the slow-cooker method compared to browning them on the stovetop or baking in the oven.


I found a honey mustard barbecue sauce a couple weeks ago at the grocery store so I decided to try it as a marinade.  We had some leftover hamburger rolls, so I used those to make pulled chicken sandwiches and they came out pretty tasty.  This makes about 4 servings (enough to fit on a roll with a little leftover).  Only thing is they’re messy, so it’s best to eat the sandwich with a fork :)  Here’s what I came up with for the recipe:


  • 3 frozen chicken breasts
  • 1 1/2 cups honey mustard barbecue sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey mustard
  • hamburger rolls (optional if you don’t want sandwiches)

Let’s Get Cooking!

  • Add chicken breasts, barbecue sauce and honey mustard to slow cooker.  Turn slow cooker on high for 4 hours.
  • At four hour mark, take chicken breasts out of slow cooker with tongs and put onto separate plate.  Use two forks to pull the chicken apart into small pieces. 
  • Add chicken pieces back into slow cooker and mix well with barbecue sauce mixture.  If mixture seems too thin or soupy, turn off slow-cooker and let it sit for 15 minutes to help thicken it up.
  • Serve on hamburger rolls or eat it alone – up to you :)



  1. Looks and sounds delicious! I make something very similar to this except for the sauce I use Heinz 57 and honey...then I add a sliced pineapple ring on top and they're great Hawaiian chicken sandwiches :) Chicken in the crock pot is so easy and delicious!

  2. This sounds delicious! An awesome spin on pork bbq.
