Slow Cooker BBQ Peach Pulled Chicken

Slow Cooker BBQ Peach Pulled Chicken is swimming in a sauce that’s sweet, tangy, and a little spicy. A combination of fresh peaches and peach preserves gives this easy crockpot chicken lots of summer flavor.

I love using my slow cooker during the hot summer months. It is such an effortless way to cook without heating up the kitchen.

How To Serve Slow Cooker BBQ Peach Pulled Chicken

My favorite way to serve Slow Cooker BBQ Peach Pulled Chicken is on a bun with creamy coleslaw, but it also makes a great filling for tacos and burritos.

Other Ingredients

In addition to fresh peach and peach preserves, there’s also chipotle peppers in adobo sauce for some smoky heat and some tomato paste gives a tomato base to the sauce.

Use Chicken Thighs

I love to use boneless, skinless chicken thighs for this recipe. They are fattier than chicken breasts and stay wonderfully juicy even after hours in the slow cooker. You can use chicken breasts instead of thighs but they will cook a little faster and will have less flavor.

Recipe Tip

The chicken should shred easily when it is fully cooked. Slow cookers cook at different rates so use the cooking time as an estimate. If it won’t shred easily, it most likely needs to be cooked longer.


Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 4 to 5 days or frozen in a freezer bag for up to 2 months.

  1. Hello Christin,
    I made this for dinner last night. My husband raved about it! The chicken is so tender and the sauce is so flavorful. I didn’t have the chipotle peppers so added 1 TBS taco seasoning. Served it over spanish rice topped with a bit of sour cream and guacamole. Wonderful recipe! Thank you for sharing.
    Best, Jakalyn
