BBQ Pulled ChickenThis is a great twist on traditional BBQ Pulled Pork. Pulled pork is a little problematic because most people make it with a ton of BBQ sauce which is loaded with sugar. We cut a bit of the sugar out but still pump it full of flavor.

Ingredients

1 8-ounce can tomato sauce
1 4-ounce can green chilies, drained Continue reading
