All You Pulled Chicken Sandwiches
This recipe has 13 ingredients including buns. The total cooking time is 5 hours, with 10 minutes of prep time. I made a few modifications to the recipe, First, I used all skinless, boneless chicken thighs, instead of a combination of thighs and breasts. Everyone in my family prefers the taste of thighs and I find many chicken breast recipes to be dry. Secondly, I used Sunny Buns, instead of whole-wheat hamburger buns. My two boys absolutely love Sunny Buns and they pretty much guarantee that my two kids will eat their sandwiches. Finally, I used sweet onion for the 2 sliced onions in the recipe. When sweet onions are in season, I prefer them in many recipes to the stronger white or red onions. I followed the remainder of the recipe as written.
I was surprised by how delicious this slow cooker recipe turned out. The onions gave the sandwiches a delicious sweet taste, which everyone in my family enjoyed. I combined the sandwiches with homemade coleslaw (recipe to be posted later today). This pulled chicken sandwich recipe is a great way to use the slow cooker and makes enough leftovers for an additional meal.
