Crockpot Pulled Chicken

This recipe is long overdue for an appearance on the here. I think I made it the first time about a year ago. Hubby and I had a can of chipotles in the fridge that we had opened for another recipe so I set out to find something to use them up. Since that first time, we’ve made this recipe probably 8-9 times. Everyone who has had this chicken loves it. And I love how easy it is to make – gotta love the crockpot doing all the hard work!

Be warned, if you’re a spice wimp like me, this might be a smidge on the spicey side for you. For everyone else, it’ll be amazing though. That’s the chipotles for you!

Crockpot Pulled Chicken

Yield: 8-10

Ingredients:

1 (14 oz.) can tomato sauce

3 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp plus 2 tsp. sweet or smoked paprika
2 Tbsp tomato paste
2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
3 tsp dry mustard
1 Tbsp chili powder
1 tsp salt
3 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs and breasts, trimmed of fat

Transfer the chicken to a cutting board and shred with a fork. Return the chicken to the sauce, stir well and serve.

    This looks so good. Should I be reading this, as hungry as I am at this moment? Thanks for adding another “wicked awesome” recipe to the round up. (I had to bring my accent back for a sec…ha!)

    Yea it was good, but just looked kinda funny. I’m definitely going to make it again with chicken that has skin on it.
