- 4 large chicken breasts (about 4 pounds)
- 1 can low sodium chicken broth
- 1 1/2 cups BBQ sauce
- 1 tablespoon garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon onion powder
- 1 tablespoon paprika
- 1/2 tablespoon black pepper
- 1 teaspoon mustard powder
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1. Rub the spices onto the chicken and place in the crockpot. Note: if you use frozen chicken the spices will not stick as well, however, this recipe does work with frozen chicken as well as fresh.
2. Pour the can of chicken broth into the crockpot. If using frozen chicken, place on high for 4 hours. If using fresh, place on low for 6-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours.
3. Once the chicken is cooked through, shred the chicken with a fork.
4. Strain out the liquid from the crockpot. To do this, spoon out the chicken into a large bowl and dump out the broth. Then, transfer the chicken back into the crockpot.
5. Once drained, mix in the BBQ sauce and continue heating on low until sauce is warm if serving right away.
