Apple Cider Pulled Chicken

Beautiful almost Fall days with a chilly start and a warm ending.  Perfect weather for crock pot meals so you can devote your day to fun while your dinner cooks itself.  This chicken hides an extra bonus of an apple which adds a nice sweetness.





Apple Cider Pulled Chicken

4 chicken breasts, skinless & boneless
1 apple, skin & core removed and then shredded
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
1/2 tsp sweet paprika
1/4 cup onion, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 cup apple cider

Place chicken breasts in your crock pot.  Sprinkle seasonings on top and then the apple, garlic and onion.  Pour in the cider around the edges.  Cook over medium heat for 6 hours.  Turn the chicken breasts occasionally.  Right before serving, shred the chicken with 2 forks and stir in 1/2 cup bbq sauce.  Serve on buns (toasted works great).
