This fix it and forget it recipe for slow cooker brown sugar pulled chicken is great on its own or as a sandwich!


  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar


  1. Place the chicken in your slow cooker.
  2. Mix all remaining ingredients together and pour over the chicken, making sure you get a little bit underneath.
  3. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours until chicken is done.
  4. Using two forks, shred the chicken right there in the slow cooker.
  5. Serve over rice, potatoes, in tortillas or in burger buns!


    • Chicken: You can use either chicken breasts (our choice!) or chicken thighs – just make sure they are boneless

    • Soy Sauce: We HIGHLY recommend the low sodium kind. You can always add salt but you can’t take it out.

    • Brown Sugar: Either light or dark will work. Dark has more molasses and will give you a more pronounced brown sugar flavor.

    • Balsamic Vinegar: This sweet, syrupy vinegar can be found next to the regular vinegar in your supermarket. After you use it for this chicken, use it again for this delectable balsamic steak salad!
