Pulled pork is outstanding, but pulled chicken is a perfect, fast substitute on a weeknight. Everyone will go nuts for this scrumptious sandwich! Top it with cole slaw (home made or store bought) to take it up another level.
4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 1/3 cups barbecue sauce
1 cup water
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
8-10 hamburger buns
Combine first 5 ingredients in a 3-quart saucepan. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 18 to 20 minutes or until chicken is tender. Remove chicken from sauce, reserving sauce. Place chicken on a plate and cool 15 minutes. Shred chicken with 2 forks.
While chicken cools, return sauce to heat. Bring to a boil; boil, uncovered, 15 minutes or until reduced by half. Stir chicken into sauce. Cook 1 to 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
Spoon 1⁄2 cup chicken mixture onto bottom half of each bun. Top each with 1⁄4 cup cole slaw (optional). Cover with bun tops.
