The BBQ pulled chicken is really easy for this recipe. Just give it plenty of time to simmer at low heat and the chicken breasts will pull apart easily. Watch the salt, especially if you're using chicken stock with sodium in it or working from a powdered base. Best to go light and work up to your taste by adding salt later as needed.
Ingredients
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ onion, chopped
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1½ cups barbecue sauce
  • 1 tsp hot sauce
  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 2 tsp black pepper
  • 12 buns
Instructions
  1. In a Dutch oven on the campfire or grill grate, heat olive.
  2. Cook the onion and garlic for about five minutes or until quite soft.
  3. Add the smoked paprika and stir. Add the chicken, pepper and salt.
  4. Add the stock and bbq sauce and cover. Place a few coals on top, but keep the heat lower (around 300 degrees) and let it simmer for 60 minutes.
  5. Once tender, remove the chicken and shred it with two forks.
  6. During that time, add more coals underneath the Dutch oven and bring the BBQ sauce mixture to a boil. If you need to skim off fat, etc. from the top, do that. Let it boil down to about ½ of its volume.
  7. Take the dutch oven off the coals, add the chicken back in and let it rest for 5 minutes. Spoon the bbq chicken mixture on to a bun and enjoy.
