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!

I used a 90 Second Keto Bread to sandwich the goods… AMAZING! I am truly obsessed with my 90 Second Keto Bread recipe. It’s so great to be able to eat burgers.. sandwiches.. you know, goodies from the ‘naughty list’.

This low carb Slow Cooker Pulled Chicken is going to be a regular on the menu from now on. I hope you love it as much as I do!

How to make low carb Slow Cooker 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 additional hour.

Make the 90 Second Keto Breads, spread 1/2 tbsp mayo onto each slice then top with roughly 1/2 cup of the Slow Cooker Pulled Chicken.
