Smoked & Shredded BBQ Chicken

Great for parties, gatherings, and even meal prep; our smoked & shredded chicken will not only be a very easy smoke but it’ll be extremely flavorful. We’ve used this shredded chicken recipe for sandwiches, poured it over crispy fries for a fun BBQ flare, and even mixed it with steamed vegetables topped on a bed of lettuce for a healthy “busy-day” salad.


  • Four boneless skinless chicken breasts
    • You may also use chicken thighs; make sure they are boneless and skinless
  • 42 ounces of your favorite BBQ sauce
  • 2 tbsp kosher salt
  • 2 tbsp cracked black pepper
  • A disposable foil pan large enough to hold the breasts and sauce


When i see this is easy, i mean this is “step one, step two, and enjoy” kind of easy!

  • Pat and dry your thawed chicken breasts
  • Season the breasts
  • Place them in foil pan
  • Pour sauce over the breasts
  • Place on smoker at 225
  • Let them smoke until 165 degrees internal temperature
  • Remove from grill
  • Let it sit at room temp for 15 minutes
  • Shred the chicken, mix it all up, serve and enjoy!
