Sweet BBQ Slow Cooker Pulled Chicken recipe

Preparation Time: 30 minutes | Cooking Time: 7 hours

Chicken thighs are cooked very slowly in a maple-sweetened BBQ sauce in this delicious recipe. Serve on soft floury rolls or with spiced oven-baked wedges.


  • 8 boneless chicken thighs, trimmed
  • 250ml ketchup
  • 125ml maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp. mustard
  • 2 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1/2 tsp. chilli powder
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper


  1. Combine ketchup, syrup, mustard, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, chilli powder and cayenne.

  2. Put chicken into the bottom of a slow cooker and pour on the sauce. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours, shred the chicken using two forks, then cook for a further 30 minutes.

At a push, use golden syrup instead of maple syrup. Recipe serves 4.
