These Barbecue Chicken Melts are a great way to serve slow cooker chicken. Your family will love them!


  • 2 lbs chicken breast (about 45 breasts)
  • 1 1/2 cup barbecue sauce (just enough to cover and coat chicken)
  • salt and pepper

For serving:

  • English muffin halves
  • shredded Monterey Jack or Cheddar cheese
  • additional barbecue sauce


  1. Add chicken breasts to your slow cooker and season with salt and pepper. Pour barbecue sauce over chicken, until just covered. Use a fork or tongs to flip chicken so that completely coated. Cook on low for 6 hours.
  2. When chicken is done, gently shred by pulling apart with 2 forks.
  3. Preheat broiler.
  4. Place English muffin halves on a baking sheet under the broiler for a minute or until lightly toasted. Pull out and top each muffin half with shredded chicken, additional barbecue sauce and shredded cheese of choice. Broil for 1-2 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbly.
  5. Serve with additional sauce if desired, and a nice salad for a healthy meal!
