Crock Pot BBQ Pulled Chicken

on March 25, 2012

One of my favorite things about the spring is throwing BBQ chicken on the grill.  I found a great BBQ chicken recipe from Eat Well that is perfect for those days when grilling is out of the question but you still want to have that taste of spring.  Since it is done in the crock pot, it makes the perfect weekend meal and require little preparation.  The chicken is pulled and made into sandwiches which will help cut down on the messiness of traditional BBQ chicken at the kitchen table with your little ones as well!
