Crock Pot BBQ Pulled Chicken Sandwiches

Today, we're welcoming our very first guest poster! The fabulous Dana from This Silly Girl's Life is bringing us a fantastic recipe for slow cooker bbq pulled chicken sandwiches. The day Dana sent this recipe to me, I was in a pinch and needed something quick to prepare for my family and made this and can say: it is so tasty! I'll be posting my review of her recipe a little bit later. 

Here's what Dana has to say:
"I LOVE my slow cooker. What I like to do on my day off is assemble some dishes that I can throw in that bad baby and off to work I go! That is where this recipe for Crock Pot BBQ Pulled Chicken Sandwiches came in. These are finger lickin' good, literally ya'll! This is probably the easiest crock pot recipe I have ever made! This is another one going in the rotation ... trust me.

This recipe made 6 sandwiches for my hubby and I but that is only because we love to stuff our faces we have a healthy appetite. If you are more conservative with your portions, you will easily get 8 to 10 sammies out of this recipe. But, if you go a little over board like we do sometimes, I don't judge."

For the crock pot BBQ pulled chicken sandwiches

1                Whole Chicken

2-3tbsp       BBQ Rub (I used Bone Suckin' Sauce Seasoning & Rub*)

1/2-1 Cup    BBQ Sauce (I used Russell's sauce* from the restaurant in Chicago, I suggest using a thinner sauce to get a good even coating)

Hamburger Buns

*Anyonita says: For my UK friends, my review of this recipe will include alternatives for both Bone Suckin' Sauce Seasoning and Rub and Russell's BBQ sauce. 

All right, let's cook:

All you do is sprinkle the chicken with the seasoning and rub it all over. Under the skin even. To do this just separate the skin from the meat by placing your hand under the skin and gently push your hand around until the skin separates. 

Place it in your crock pot breast side down with nothing else, no liquid, nada. 

Cover, place on low heat and let it go to town. Ours cooked for about 9ish hours.  You will see it produces a lot of natural juice.

 Remove the chicken and save about 1/4 of the liquid. Discard the remaining liquid. 
Shred the chicken discarding the bones and skin. Place the shredded chicken back in the slow cooker on the "keep warm" setting. 
Pour the liquid over the meat and add the BBQ sauce little by little until it is sauced how you like it. Cover the pot. Use this time to finish any sides you want with it. 
Place on hamburger buns and drizzle with more sauce if you'd like. This is so unbelievably tender you'll wonder why you never thought of it!
