Pulled chicken is often associated with being a decadent, dark-meat meal - but that's only because we naturally picture it on top of a bun with barbecue sauce and fries. But alone, pulled chicken is straight delicious, tender protein - and can be made with white meat only if dark meat's not your thing. We've been cooking a lot of pulled chicken in the slow cooker lately, and compiled this list of recipes you seriously must try if you're getting tired of the same-old-same-old chicken dinner. The flavors in each of these recipes are vibrant and delicious - and everyone at your table is likely to swoon.
