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 :)
