Crock-Pot Root Beer Pulled Chicken
Delicious, moist and flavorful, this Crock-Pot Root Beer Pulled Chicken is the perfect dinner to make on a busy day when you have a lot going on. The chicken is slow cooked in your favorite root beer with a homemade barbecue sauce that is laced with ginger!
However, if you want to you can use a bottle of your favorite brand of store-bought barbecue sauce too. But if you have it in your pantry we highly recommend adding the 1/8 teaspoon of ground ginger as it really kicks up the ginger kick from the root beer!
You can also make this recipe into a Crock-Pot freezer meal! Just place all ingredients in a large gallon-sized zippered freezer bag (or for longer storage seal in a FoodSaver). Remove as much air as possible and lay your bag flat. Label your bag with the name of the recipe and cooking instructions and freeze for 6 – 8 months.
Too cook the slow cooker freezer meal partially thaw the contents of the bag in the refrigerator overnight or place in a sink of cool water just until you can easily pop the frozen chicken from the bag. Place in a 6 to 7 quart slow cooker and cook for 5 to 7 hours from the partially frozen state.
