  • 18 ounces barbecue sauce
  • 4 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • sea salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste
  • 16 King's Hawaiian rolls
  • sliced pickles optional garnish
  • ½ onion, sliced optional garnish


  1. Season both sides of chicken breast with sea salt, black pepper, and chili powder then add to slow cooker. Pour barbecue sauce over top to cover chicken.

  2. Place cover on slow cooker and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6 to 8 hours. When finished, sauce should be bubbly and chicken should reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees Farenheit at the thickest part.

  3. Remove chicken breasts from crock and shred with two forks. Place shredded chicken back in crock and stir to coat with the sauce.

  4. Slice King's Hawaiian rolls into halves horizontally to become slider buns. See notes for tips on this.

  5. Serve pulled chicken on prepared buns with sliced pickles and onions, if desired.

Recipe Notes

How to easily cut King's Hawaiian rolls for slider buns: Remove buns from package without separating them. Slice through the entire group of buns horizontally then separate all at once.
