Simple BBQ Shredded Chicken

by Coach Courtney, RD

For many, it can be challenging to consume enough protein as protein containing foods typically take the most time to prepare. I find it helpful to designate one or two days each week to prepare some lean proteins to have one hand for lunches and supper.

During the colder months, I like to enlist the help of my slower cooker to streamline meal prep. Adding sauces and spices to a blank protein canvas can fend off food boredom. But often times, condiments and sauces are loaded with added sugars and unnecessary calories. I found a lower sugar BBQ sauce online (click here) which is low in sugar but packed with flavor. It is also available at Hygeia Health Market in Stonebridge, Saskatoon. I have also made this recipe using the Calorie-Wise Kraft BBQ sauce available at most grocery stores - although, it is a bit higher in sugar than the Guy's BBQ Sauce. I kept the recipe super simple and just used the BBQ sauce for flavour - but you could add extra spices and flavors such as onion powder, garlic powder, cumin, paprika, chilli powder, etc.


  • 4 large chicken breasts, raw (1000g)

  • 1 cup (240g) Guy's Original BBQ Sauce
