BBQ Pulled Chicken with Apple-Cuc Slaw

by ADMIN on MAY 25, 2012

I used to think making pulled chicken was difficult. Or would take a long time.

I mean, there must be some crazy technique that goes into cooking something so dang delicious!

But no.

It’s easy as:

  1. Saute chicken

  2. Add BBQ sauce

  3. Rip apart with a fork

All in about 15 minutes of cooking. Finito!

Seriously. How awesome is 15 minute pulled chicken? Very.

And with a sweet, crunchy ‘n’ tangy slaw to boot.
