  • Author: Stephanie Wilson

Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Chicken Sliders, a favorite and easy way to prepare and enjoy tender barbecue chicken.


Units Scale
  • 2 lb (4-5) chicken breasts
  • 1 1/2 cups BBQ sauce (like Sweet Baby Ray’s)
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • slider buns (approx. 12-14, depending on pack size)
  • store-bought coleslaw mix


  1. Combine the BBQ sauce, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar and red pepper flakes in a small bowl.
  2. Lay the chicken breasts in the bottom of the slow cooker. Pour the sauce over the chicken and turn to coat. Place 2 paper towels under the lid of the slow cooker to prevent excess moisture.
  3. Cook on HIGH for 3-4 hours or LOW 5-6 hours or until chicken breasts reach 165° minimum and shred easily.
  4. Pull the chicken breasts apart with two forks, add a bit more sauce if necessary, and serve on slider buns topped with coleslaw.



Leftovers can be kept in the fridge for up to three days and re-heated.
