What’s more filling than a thick juicy pulled chicken burger? Not too much in my opinion. I have been making this for quite a while, though not that often, I don’t want to ruin a good, simple thing. How much easy is it? That’s just like the patty melt, you don’t want it too often, or it just wouldn’t be that good anymore.
I think this is a great meal for those days when you’re not sure what to make. Great for anytime of the year… who doesn’t want a burger in the burger, right? Plus the bonus is you aren’t standing over a hot stove or BBQ.
Slow Cooker Pulled Chicken Burger
Take some boneless, skinless chicken breast and put them in the bottom of your slow cooker. Add some diced onions for extra flavor. (I add onions to everything I made, slow cooker or not.)
Add a cup of BBQ to the top, it can be homemade BBQ sauce or store bought. Set to low for 8 hours, or high for 3-5 hours.
20 minutes or so before your ready to eat, take the chicken out, and shred it with forks, just pull it all apart into bit size pieces. Put it back into the slow cooker, stir it around with the BBQ sauce. Feel free to add more BBQ if you’d like.
I have, as I said before, made this quite a bit. I’ve used store bought BBQ sauces, and homemade sauces, and I’m sure you can guess which I prefer. That’s right, the homemade. Here is a copy of my favorite homemade BBQ sauce. We use it for anything that calls for BBQ sauce, including BBQing.
- 1 cup ketchup
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 2 tbsp vinegar

- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp dry mustard
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1/4 tsp all spice
- Over medium heat and add all ingredients to the pot. Once it starts to steam, reduce heat to medium low and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, or until slightly thickened.
