“Shut Up!” That’s what you will say a few times after you start eating this BBQ Pulled Chicken. I promise. It’s so stinkin’ good! This recipe was inspired by a recipe that The Pioneer Woman posted probably a decade ago by now. It’s not at all the same, just inspired by it when drool fell out of my mouth reading about it one day.
I then decided to make this a little my own a few years ago, and it has been a huge hit in my family since. During my Food Freedom, I realized I hadn’t made it quite some time. And for good reason. The BBQ sauce alone was full of sugar, preservatives. Then the beer I would toss in from time to time, oh and the Canola Oil I cooked it in. Lord, Heather, get a hold of yourself. I know, shame on me.
Well now, we are on track, it is GAME DAY, and I need a dang BBQ recipe that makes me happily enjoy the game right along with everyone else. Enter this recipe.
My favorite way to serve this BBQ Pulled Chicken is on Sweet Potato disks, or “buns”. Roasted with just a bit of Olive or Avocado Oil, Salt, and Cinnamon, oh my gosh, I just drooled again. Another delish way is to top a baked potato with it, just eat it plain, on a salad, or piled on chips for nachos. Endless possibilities my friends. This makes a good amount too, so there won’t be any shortages for leftovers. Unless your friends realize how good it is. I can’t help you there then. Well, yes I can, because I know what I do. I store some in the back of the fridge before everyone gets here, so I KNOW there will be leftovers. You’re welcome (I didn’t just sing that in my most Maui way, I promise).
With just a few common ingredients and my Whole30 BBQ Sauce recipe, you can whip this up real quick before any tailgate, crowd you are hosting, or just a bunch of hungry kids. Don’t even tell them it’s good for them, okay?!
