  • 8 oz root beer I used Dad's
  • 1 cup BBQ sauce I used Sweet Baby Ray's original flavor
  • 1 - 1 1/2 pounds of chicken breasts
  • 1 TBSP corn starch


  • Whisk together the root beer (after the fizzing has stopped) and the BBQ sauce.
  • Pour over the chicken in the slow cooker, making sure that some gets between the chicken and the bottom of the slow cooker.
  • Cook on low for 4 to 6 hours.
  • At the end of the cooking time, pull out the whole chicken breasts and shred them on a cutting board. Then whisk the corn starch into the sauce in the crock pot. Return the chicken to the slow cooker and stir to make sure all of it gets completely coated with the sauce.
  • Serve on a nice pretzel bun.


Please note that the nutritional information is only for the chicken and not for the bun.
