Are you a fan of football? What about college football? For me, I wouldn’t necessarily say I’m a huge fan of the actual game (wait, who am I kidding I love competition), I’m just a bigger fan of the ambiance at the game. Especially a college football game! The sounds, colors, school spirit, food and drinks. It is so much fun being around all the people, cheering on a team and enjoying a great snack or two ;)
Let’s talk about the food and drinks, because let’s be honest that’s why a majority of people watch a game! Whether you are homegating or tailgating food is involved. My favorite go-to for pleasing a group usually involves the crockpot. There are so many tasty and easy to make recipes for the crockpot. All the prep work comes hours before the guests arrive, which is my number one tip for planning/prepping for a game – have everything ready before your first guest arrives. One recipe I’ve always found is a winner is some kind of pulled meat sandwich. The Dr Pepper® BBQ Pulled Meat Sandwiches are definitely a hit and are so easy to make, with only 3 ingredients and easy clean up.
Dr Pepper BBQ Pulled Chicken Sandwiches
Prep time: 10 minutes Cook time: 4-6 on low
4 lbs. *Chicken Breast
18 oz bottle of BBQ sauce
12 oz bottle of Dr Pepper
- Place chicken breast into crockpot, no need to cut up.
- Squeeze bbq sauce over chicken.
- Pour Dr Pepper over chicken.
- Sprinkle some seasoning over chicken, this is optional. We used about a teaspoon of “kick n spice” chicken seasoning.
- Close the lid and turn knob to low, cook for 4-6 hours.
- After 4-6 hours, shred chicken.
- Serve warm, if desired add extra bbq sauce or sauce of choice.
*Or meat of choice.
