TBS Cooks: Crockpot Pulled Chicken Sandwiches

It was sooooo rainy and gloomy in Atlanta this past Sunday.  Besides wanting to waddle in bed all day and watch old movies (one of my VERY favorite things to do, by the way), I knew I didn't want to stand over the stove at. all.

Early in the day, I found a recipe for Crockpot Pulled Chicken, thawed some frozen buns and whipped up a side of pineapple coleslaw. Tah-dah!  Six hours later,  we were grazing on one of the most simple (but delicious) meals ever.

What is YOUR favorite crockpot recipe?

Here's the recipe for the pulled chicken sandwiches:


    • 2 lbs chicken breasts
    • 1 (16 ounce) jars 505 medium hot salsa ( or other brand if your store doesn't carry 505)
    • 2 serrano peppers, chopped
    • 6 garlic cloves, pressed
    • 1 packet taco seasoning 


  1. Combine all ingredients in crock pot and cook for 10 1/2 hours.
  2. To shred chicken, remove from crock pot and use 2 forks to pull apart.
  3. Very easy!
  4. Put shredded chicken back in sauce to keep moist


  1. I make a similar version of this that I love! Its called Salsa Chicken:

    4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    1 cup salsa
    1 package taco seasoning
    1 can cream of mushroom soup

    Cook for 3 hours on high or 8 on low and shred. I use the chicken and make tacos. They are great!

  2. My two favorite crockpot recipes are chili and a hearty vegetable beef stew! -pearls

  3. I love to spend a rainy day in bed watching old movies too, and comfort food goes along with that. I can bear to rise and make enough curry for the whole weekend, in my nightgown, then get back in bed with my bowl.
