Champion Pulled Chicken Sandwiches

Cook this rich, pulled-chicken filling in a slow cooker ahead of game time—then re-warm and carry to the tailgater with Kaiser or onion rolls, coleslaw, baked beans, or kettle chips. You can also carry the cooked chicken in a Dutch oven that can sit on a small kettle or gas grill to reheat.
