This recipe is from the book, ‘Not Your Mother’s Slow Cooker Recipes for Two.’ It makes a delicious pulled chicken! I’ve doubled the recipe so that the recipe below serves 4. You can easily double this on your own to serve 8, if you’d like. The leftovers are delicious! We usually serve this on a sandwich bun with cole slaw on top. We’ve also used the leftovers to make homemade BBQ chicken pizza or nachos, which were both also delicious.

Ingredients

  • 1 large onion, chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs

  • 1 cup ketchup

  • 4 TBS apple cider vinegar

  • 4 TBS brown sugar

  • 2 TBS olive oil

  • 3 TSP Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 1/2 TSP chili powder

  • 1/2 TSP salt

  • 4 hamburger rolls

Directions

  • Sprinkle the onion and garlic over the bottom of the slow cooker and arrange the chicken thighs on top.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the ketchup, cider vinegar, brown sugar, oil, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder and salt; pour over the thighs. Cover and cook on low in a slow cooker for 6 hours, until the chicken is fork-tender and pulls apart easily.
  • Remove the chicken from the slow cooker. With two forks, pull apart the meat into shredded chunks; return to the slow cooker and stir to combine. Cover and leave on the WARM setting until ready to eat. Serve spooned onto warmed hamburger buns and top with cole slaw, if desired.

Total Cost of meal

  • 8 chicken thighs (approx. 2 lb) = $4 
    4 rolls = $1 
    Onion, garlic = $0.50 
    Cole slaw to top the sandwiches = $1 
    Spices, ketchup, vinegar, brown sugar = $1.25
