Your rating: None Average: 3.8 (739 votes)

This BBQ pulled chicken recipe is a fanciful reinterpretation of pulled pork that slow-cooks chicken in lots of tangy tomato sauce. Have sliced jalapenos, sliced red onions and some sour cream on hand to top this barbecue pulled chicken, which makes a hearty main course. You can turn it into an unbelievable sandwich or serve it on mashed potatoes or even whole-grain spaghetti. Serve with shredded napa cabbage tossed with low-fat mayonnaise, cider vinegar, celery seed and honey to taste.

Tasty, but soupy.

I made this today and thought I had used the wrong size can of tomato sauce. There was way too much additional sauce left over. I served over whole wheat buns. It had just the right amount of heat, and is not very sweet.

Good flavor, some heat

AMAZING!

I made this for dinner, and ate it with mashed sweet potatoes and steamed broccoli. So good! Made the whole house smell delish, I felt like a cook!

Takes some time to put together
Yummy!

ok but not super

more like tomato-y chicken instead of barbecue. I could see this being ok in tacos. Maybe if I added more toppings to the sandwich it would have given it more flavor

I made this the other day (it's the third time I've made this, and it was delicious). I think it makes approximately 6 cups of chicken, and depending on how much you pack your 1/2-cup measure, you can get about 12 1/2-cup servings, which seems like a decent amount of food to me when you pair it with a bun and a side. I usually eat 1/3 cup of chicken served over a half-bun (with mama's potato salad) and feel satisfied.

Also, I am not sure if the nutrition information is accurate. I put the ingredients into several website's calorie calculators and they said that 8 servings is approximately 308 calories.

Anyway, by my count, a 1/2 cup serving is approximately 205 calories (64 calories from fat), 7g fat (2 sat), 84 cholesterol, 328 sodium, 6 carbs, 5 sugars, 28g protein.

If this isn't accurate, I'd love to know.

Thank you so much I was

Thank you so much I was trying to figure out where the 32 carbs were coming from and was beginning to think I was crazy. Your calculation match mine.
