Carolina Gold Barbeque Chicken

I absolutely love barbeque….especially vinegar and mustard based barbeque that is so popular here in South Carolina. So one of the things that I wanted to do was to create a great slow cooker recipe that combines a good Carolina Gold mustard/vinegar sauce with some chicken.

And although you could use whole chicken breast and leave them whole, I prefer to create a pulled chicken recipe that can be served over rice or as a sandwich. You can actually use pork for this recipe and it will work well. I used boneless chicken thigh and it was incredibly tender and tasty!
