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!

    I just picked up some country style ribs, and I’m planning on making my own bbq sauce for them. This might be a contender!

    Is there a substitute you can suggest for molasses? I have the rest of the ingredients at home!

      I don’t know that there’s an exact substitute for molasses… I would mix some honey with some dark brown sugar if you have those on hand.

    Can this be canned for long term storage? If so, do you have the directions?
