I think at this point we have done every type of pulled meat except for chicken. So here it is! Our Slow Cooker Smoked Maple Pulled Chicken. A delicious and low fat pulled meat recipe you HAVE to try!
Slow Cooker Smoked Maple Pulled Chicken (serves 6):
1 tbsp coconut oil
1kg chicken breasts (boneless, skinless)
1 red onion, diced
Water (about 4-5tbsp)
1x14oz can of canned, crushed tomatoes
1/8 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup of Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp smoked paprika
1 tsp salt
1 tsp chili powder
1) Melt the coconut oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the chicken breasts and brown on one side (about 6mins), then transfer chicken to your slow cooker.
2) Add onion to the pot and water so you can scrape off the brown bits on the bottom and cook for 2 mins or until onions soften. Then add in the tomatoes, maple syrup, vinegar, Worcestershire, paprika, salt and chili powder. Remove from heat once combined and pour over the chicken.
3) Cook on low in the slow cooker for 5 hours. Once cooled, shred the chicken and then add the sauce back in with the chicken. Serve in a baked potato with a side of green beans like we did and enjoy!
*optional-we reduced the sauce for 10mins on low in a sauce pan in order to intensify the flavours but this isn’t necessary if you’re pressed for time*
