Pulled Chicken Sandwiches


Pulled chicken is faster and easier than pulled pork and nearly as good. Smoke the chicken, shred the meat, and mix it with a good barbecue sauce. Now you have a delicious sandwich. For additional flavor top these sandwiches with Cole Slaw.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Yield: Serves 6


  • 1 whole chicken
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 4 whole cloves


Prepare smoker for 4-5 hour smoke. Wash and pat dry the chicken. Stuff with the onion, garlic, and cloves. Smoke until tender all the way through. The internal temperature of the breast at it's thickest point should be 165 degrees F. Remove chicken from the smoker and let cool. When cool enough to work with, put you largest skillet on the stove on a low heat. Remove stuffing and skin from chicken. Pull all the meat from the bones and place in the skillet. Add BBQ sauce and mix well. Let simmer until evenly heated. Serve on hard rolls or hamburger buns.
