Slow Cooker Bourbon Pulled Chicken

Friday, February 2, 2018
Slow cooker bourbon pulled chicken with hot sauce is a terrific crowd-pleaser.

I make chicken in the slow cooker often, however, this one is always a big hit because of the sauce in it.

It's perfect for a potluck, events and is delicious even when prepared ahead of time for the big game parties.

The best thing about my slow cooker is everything that's cooked is falls apart tender.

The chicken in hot sauce is the perfect buffalo hot sauce sandwich! You can use this also over rice, pasta, baked potatoes and tortilla shells for an over the top taco!

  1. I love buffalo chicken...this sounds so easy...I need to use my crockpot more often.

  2. I also love meat falling apart.It can be so tender:) This is what I call a sandwich:))

  3. The slow cooker was one of the appliances we left behind when moving from Denver to DC earlier this year. But, I don't miss it. I've got a couple of heavy pots that can simmer on the stove or in the oven forever. The look and sound of your pulled chicken has me wanting to go out to breadfast (it's 8 am here) even though I never eat breakfast.

  4. Claudia, this is just the thing for football fever folks, be sure to add to the football group at CES, they will love it - it sounds like a feel good, slap-your-mama sammie that I know is going in my line-up this season, along with many of your tail-gating foods... have a happy Sunday...

  5. You had me with comparing the flavor to wings. Perfect recipe to make for when I am rooting for my Steelers. Bookmarking this for game day.

  6. I am sitting here looking at slow cooker recipes trying to come up with a good one and you hand me this. I see this recipe in my future.
