Southern Pulled Chicken and Maque Choux

Directions

  1. Place chicken in a 3 1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker. In a medium bowl combine barbecue sauce and beer. Pour mixture over chicken.
  2. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 5 to 6 hours or on high-heat setting for 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Using a slotted spoon, remove chicken from cooker, reserving cooking liquid. When cool enough to handle, remove meat from bones; discard bones. Using two forks, pull chicken apart into shreds.
  3. For sauce, skim fat from cooking liquid. Measure 2 cups of the cooking liquid; discard any remaining liquid. Pour the 2 cups liquid into a medium saucepan. Simmer, uncovered, for 10 to 12 minutes or until reduced to about 1 cup.
  4. Meanwhile, preheat broiler. Hollow out bun halves, leaving 1/2-inch shells. Broil 5 to 6 inches from the heat for 1 to 2 minutes or until buns are toasted.
  5. To serve, spoon half of the shredded chicken into toasted bun halves. Drizzle with half of the sauce. (Place the remaining shredded chicken in a freezer container; drizzle with the remaining sauce. Cover and freeze for up to 1 month.) Using a slotted spoon, spoon Maque Choux over sandwiches.
