So I’ve been CRAZY happy about the Low Carb BBQ Sauce I recently created. It has me making all these delicious meals I normally wouldn’t be able to eat unless indulging on a cheat day!

Slow Cooker Pulled Chicken was at the top of my list, and oh my goodness it was soooo good! My husband and I polished off the entire batch and were basically licking the slow cooker for any last remnants!

Why it works

  • Juicy chicken slow cooked and dripping with a low carb bbq sauce? This Keto Pulled Chicken is drool worthy!
  • We use keto bread to sandwich the goods together, making this pulled chicken a great low carb choice.
  • Let the slow cooker do the heavy work in this easy Keto Pulled Chicken recipe!

Ingredients

  • boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • salt & pepper
  • low carb bbq sauce
  • mayonnaise
  • keto bread

Low Carb BBQ Sauce – I am obsessed with this homemade Low Carb BBQ Sauce. It is super easy to make and perfect for this Keto Pulled Chicken! If you have your own favourite low carb bbq sauce, go ahead and try it in this recipe.

Keto Bread – I prefer a 90 Second Keto Bread for this recipe because they are fast and easy to make. Otherwise these Low Carb Onion Buns would be great or make sliders with these Keto Dinner Rolls!

How to make Slow Cooker Keto Pulled Chicken

Start by heating a skillet on medium high and seasoning boneless skinless chicken thighs with salt and pepper. When the skillet is hot, sear both sides of the chicken thighs, then add to the slow cooker. Cook on low for 5-6 hours or high for 3-4.

When there is one hour remaining, remove the thighs from the slow cooker and whisk your choice of barbecue sauce into the chicken juice. Pull the chicken thighs apart with a couple of forks before returning to the sauce. Mix well then cook for the remaining hour.

Make the Keto Bread, spread 1/2 tbsp mayo onto each slice then top with roughly 1/2 cup of the Slow Cooker Pulled Chicken. Enjoy!
