Sweet Pecan Rub is a customer favorite...for good reason! This blend is the perfect sweet, savory, smoky combo. We love it on ribson the grill. And it's a great weeknight solution for pork tenderloin. Another great idea? Pulled chicken. Lori put chicken in the slow cooker with sweet pecan, and in a few hours, she had sweet, tender pulled chicken. It's excellent on this slider with a cool, creamy coleslaw. A great dish that makes lots of sandwiches. Perfect if you're feeding a crowd!
Ingredients for the Chicken:
3 lbs chicken--you can use a combo of boneless skinless breasts and thighs or bone-in chicken pieces with the skin off
3 Tbl Shallot Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 oz Sweet Pecan Rub
Directions for the Chicken:
Sprinkle the Sweet Pecan Rub over the chicken pieces. Place in a slow cooker and cook for four hours on low. Remove the chicken from the slow cooker and allow to cool. Using two forks, pull the chicken into bite sized pieces.
