After a long, busy week of work, going to school, and running kids back and forth between their schools and sports, the last thing I want to do is be in the kitchen on the weekends!

One of my family favorite recipes is Slow-Cooking Pulled Chicken!  No… I said chicken, not pork! While my kids are getting ready in the morning for basketball, soccer, or dance, I am in the kitchen loading up my crock pot! Having a crock pot is a life saver for a big family on the go, especially one that is health conscious. Today lots of families hit a fast food chain after a long day of sports or outdoor activities; we on the other hand, come home to a homemade meal that is ready to serve our hungry troops!


2 -3 lbs raw boneless skinless lean chicken breasts

½ white onion - finely chopped

1 cup canned tomato sauce

1/2 cup ketchup

3 tbsp brown sugar - not packed

3 tbsp Bragg’s apple cider vinegar

2 tsp fresh garlic

Optional: instead of adding tomato sauce, brown sugar, and ketchup, use your favorite BBQ sauce!


Place all ingredients except the chicken in the crock pot. Stir until mixed. Add chicken and coat well with the sauce.

Cover and cook on high for 3 - 4 hours OR on low for 7 - 8 hours, until chicken is fully cooked. Shred chicken using two forks.

Serve on whole wheat rolls with your favorite salad in the summer or cup of hot soup in the winter
