    • Small chicken, about 1.25-1.5kg (2¾–3lb)
    • 6-8 tbsp barbecue sauce
    • Baps, sliced tomato and coleslaw, to serve


    1. Wash the chicken and pat it dry with kitchen paper. Place it in the slow-cook pot. Set the pot to a medium/high heat, and cook the chicken for 4-5 hours, or until the juices run clear when the flesh is pierced with a skewer.
    1. Remove the chicken from the pot, take the skin off and then pull the flesh off the bones — it should be so tender, this will be easy to do.
    1. Stir the chicken into the barbecue sauce and serve in baps with sliced tomatoes and a little extra sauce drizzled over, if liked. Serve with coleslaw.
