Slow Cooker Pulled Chicken & Professor Becker’s BBQ Sauce

I am so late with my posts this week but I’m fitting them in the day so hopefully that counts for something. 🙂 I never realized how much being out of the office would set me back. — But — I’m back, so we’re moving onward! I made this extremely delicious pulled chicken last week using a new-to-the-market Professor Becker’s Barbecue Sauce, so good! I had to share it with you guys…

Professor Becker’s sauce is a rich, tangy, gluten-free and all-natural BBQ sauce that honors the legacy of beloved longtime Farmingdale State College Professor and Alumnus.

Professor Becker’s BBQ sauce was officially launched on October 15th, comes in 2 varieties both mild and hot and is currently only available on Farmingdale’s Alumni Page. Proceeds from the sale of each bottle will go to establish a scholarship fund in Prof. Becker’s name and other Farmingdale Alumni Association programs.

So not only are you enhancing the flavors of your dishes but you’re also helping a cause! It’s a win-win. 🙂 And I have to say this sauce is really, really fantastic. I threw all of the ingredients below in a slow cooker, so simple, so delicious!

    Just the idea of pulled chicken sounds great. I am usually doing the pulled pork thing, so this looks like a delicious change of pace. That picture is awesome-yum!

    I’ve never seen this type of BBQ sauce – but I have a friend who is ALL about BBQ. I bet she’d love a bottle of this! Great recipe and welcome back!

    I haven’t seen it yet, but I’ll have to keep my eyes open.

    I’m not normally a fan of barbecue, but that chicken looks so tender and fabulous! I have to try this.
