Shredded Chicken Sandwiches

Mike looked at me this morning around 8:30 and said, “So…what’s for lunch today?” Good question, Mike. Good question. I decided to make a french toast bake for tomorrow’s lunch but had nothing in mind for today! I wanted something quick and easy that I wouldn’t have to babysit.  I love pulled pork but didn’t have enough time to make any. So I thought, why not pulled chicken!?

Shredded Chicken


  • 4 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1/4 cup of olive oil
  • 1/4 cup of soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons of sriracha (or pepper)
  • 1/4 cup of rice wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons of fresh, chopped garlic

*I didn’t really measure. Just add what you think, but remember that soy sauce is salty!


Add everything to a crock pot, and cook on high for 2.5 hours.

After 2.5 hours in the crock pot, remove the chicken and sauce and add it to a heated skillet on the stove-top. Cover and simmer for 1 hour, flipping at least twice during that time.

Remove the chicken and shred while the sauce is still cooking/reducing.

Add the chicken back into the sauce and cook for a few more minutes.

We ate ours on Yorkville Bakery hard rolls with a little bit of barbecue sauce. It was SO good! Serve with homemade chips (or not…no judgement here).

*Don’t let the picture fool you. That pan was completely full of chicken. I made the mistake of waiting to get a picture! The guys had already gotten to it.
