Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken Sandwiches


Super easy BBQ chicken sandwiches that are tasty and budget friendly. Some coleslaw, garlic corn, and a pickle go great with these sandwiches. Or to save time, a bag of chips.

Total Time:

6 sandwiches


  • 4 large bone-in chicken breast halves, skin removed, trimmed of fat

  • 1 (18 ounce) bottle barbeque sauce

  • 1 ½ (16 ounce) packages (4-pack) whole wheat hamburger buns, split


  1. Place chicken in a slow cooker and pour barbecue sauce over top.

  2. Cover and cook on Low until chicken is tender and can easily be pulled apart with a fork.

  3. Remove chicken breasts from the slow cooker. Separate meat and bones; discard bones. Shred chicken with a fork.

  4. Place chicken on buns with some extra sauce from the slow cooker.

Cook's Notes:

Williamson Bros® Bar-B-Q sauce is my favorite. If you want a spicier BBQ, add a little cayenne to give it a kick.

For the folks that don't like wheat bread, try these with potato buns or even plain white Sunbeam® bread is delicious.
