Can you do this in the slow cooker? Thanks

Yes, you can make this recipe in your slow cooker. It'll take about 4 to 5 hours on LOW or 2 to 3 hours on HIGH, or until you can easily shred with a fork. Enjoy!

An oldie but goodie recipe. My first Mr. Food search after seeing it on local TV . A wonderful recipe as is, and a wonderful recipe adapted for leftover roasted chicken. You can't go wrong! Everyone loves it!

Much the same as pulled pork but shorter cooking time, tasty.

A great alternative to pulled pork,because I have a allergic reaction if I eat certain pork products due to the medication that I take Thanks Mr. Food!!

Great variation from pork!!
