Pulled chicken

My sister-in-law gave me this very easy recipe that requires very little preparation and work.  This is certainly wonderful for a busy week and would also be great for a brunch.  You will need a slow cooker for this recipe. I used frozen chicken breast, as I find cooking my chicken for 8 hours on low, is way too long and my chicken tends to dry out (Unfortunately, my slow cooker only has a few settings).  I have never used Root beer for cooking before, but the chicken does not end up tasting like root beer or even tastes sweet.

The shredded chicken is very versatile and can be used in a variety of ways- served on a bun, as a quesadilla, tossed into a salad, or even add the chicken to a Potato soup for more protein. This easy recipe has certainly made my life a little happier.


4 chicken breast (frozen)

2 cans root beer (enough to cover the chicken)

3 garlic cloves (with skins on is fine)

1-1/2 bottle of barbeque sauce (something that you like)



  1. Using a fork, pierce the chicken, so that the root beer gets in and makes the chicken moist.
  2. Toss chicken, garlic and root beer into the slow cooker.
  3. When the chicken is cooked, remove from liquid and shred.
  4. Mix shredded chicken with barbeque sauce. Enjoy!
