Slow Cooker Pulled Chicken Ingredients:


  • Season chicken thighs with salt and pepper.
  • Sauté your onion and chicken with a little extra virgin olive oil.
  • Load in everything but the bread buns and sweet and sour sauce.
  • Mix well.
  • Place the lid on the slow cooker and cook for either 4 hours on high or 7 hours on low.
  • Remove everything from the slow cooker apart from the chicken and put to one side.
  • Load in the sweet and sour sauce, plus a little of the juices from the chicken and using meat claws shred the chicken.
  • Load into sandwiches with some pineapple and pepper that you put to one side.
  • Serve.


It is important that the chicken thighs you cook are totally thawed as it is dangerous to cook frozen chicken thighs in the slow cooker.
I like to reserve the juices from the slow cooker and freeze once cool. It makes the perfect stock for next time you make slow cooker pulled chicken.
I sautéed my onion first with the chicken. I have a Crockpot with a stovetop option. If you don’t, leave out the sauté and instead season the chicken with salt and pepper and load everything else in.
