Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Chicken

Sharing is caring!

This is a delicious, smoky, slow cooker dish that is easy to make, and it doesn’t require a BBQ grill or smoker. My husband and I love this dish and enjoy it on freshly baked or toasted onion rolls but really any bun is fine. I serve it with fries and sometimes coleslaw. Enjoy.


  • nonstick cooking spray
  • 3 large skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon seasoning salt, or to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon barbeque seasoning, or to taste
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 (18 ounce) bottle barbeque sauce
  • ¼ cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon mesquite-flavored liquid smoke (Optional)


Spray a slow cooker with nonstick spray.

Season chicken with smoked paprika, seasoning salt, barbecue seasoning, and pepper; place in the slow cooker.

Mix barbecue sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and liquid smoke together in a small bowl. Pour over chicken, making sure chicken is completely covered.

Cover and cook until meat can be shredded with a fork, about 6 hours on Low or 4 hours on High.

Remove chicken and pull. Return to the cooker and mix well with the barbecue sauce.

Let sit 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
