Slow Cooker Honey Mustard Pulled Chicken is my new favorite recipe!  It’s a slow cooker recipe so get ready to set it, forget it, and have a yummy meal waiting for you.  I love honey mustard when paired with chicken, chicken tenders specifically, but shredded chicken slathered in a honey mustard sauce isn’t too bad either 😊 The chicken is tender and juicy and is paired with a perfect sweet and tangy sauce.  Serve as a sandwich, on top of a salad, over rice with veggies, on top of mashed potatoes with some steamed veggies, etc.  It can also be enjoyed as is.

The recipe can be found here.

Start by placing the boneless skinless chicken breasts in the bowl of a slow cooker.  This recipe is for boneless skinless chicken, but you can use another variety if you prefer (i.e., chicken thighs) but you may need to adjust the cook time.

Add the honey, yellow mustard, Worcestershire sauce, melted butter, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper to a mixing bowl.  Whisk to combine then pour over the chicken.

Close the lid and cook on LOW for 6 hours or until an internal temperature of 165 degrees F is reached.  Remove the chicken to a cutting board and use to forks to shred.  Then return the chicken to the slow cooker and stir to coat with the sauce.

Add the heavy cream and stir to combine.  The heavy cream will help tame down the tangy mustard flavor a bit and adds a nice creaminess to the sauce.  If you are looking for a lighter option, try substituting the heavy cream with coconut milk.

Serve warm and enjoy!

If you are not serving immediately, cover and keep warm until ready to serve, stirring occasionally.  If you are making this ahead of time, let cool and transfer to an airtight container to store in the fridge.  Reheat before serving.  This recipe also freezes well if you have leftovers or are looking to create meals for a future date.

We enjoyed the shredded chicken on sandwiches.  I suggest preheating the oven to 250 degrees, place buns on a baking sheet (open faced), top with cheese, and toast in the oven for about 5 minutes.  The buns will be warm and have a nice crunch and the cheese will be melted.  Top with some sliced onions, lettuce, tomato…whatever toppings you want, and dig in!

Happy Cooking!
