BBQ-Apple Chicken Sandwiches

Shopping List

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, uncooked
  • 2 cups apple juice
  • 1 (at least 16 oz) bottle of BBQ sauce
  • 1 onion, sliced and sautéed (optional)
  • Toast, burger buns, rolls…just your favorite kind of bread


  1. In your slow cooker, add in your chicken, apple juice and entire bottle of BBQ sauce.
  2. Cook on low 6 to 8 hours or on high 3 to 4 hours.
  3. When dinner is ready, remove chicken and some sauce from slow cooker into a bowl, shred up with two forks (add in a little more of your sauce if needed).  Serve shredded chicken with sautéed onions (optional) on top of your favorite bread (we used a whole wheat loaf from our bakery.

Done!  See how simple that was?  The chicken was super tender and moist and very flavorful.  The apple juice really adds a little sweetness without being too over-powering.  I put my chicken in there straight from the fridge but you could add them in frozen if you like (just make sure you have them in there at least 8 hours on low, 4 on high).

    What a great fall sandwich this is going to make. This would make a great around the campfire sandwich with roasted marshmallows afterwards, yummy!

    This recipe sounds delicious! I would never have thought to add apple juice, but I’ll bet that gives it a very nice flavor. I’ve pinned this for later use, thank you!
