Making shredded chicken just got a whole lot easier thanks to your Dutch Oven! Your Dutch Oven will make tender and moist pulled chicken in only 90 minutes or less. Dutch Oven Pulled Chicken is perfect for meal prep, make ahead meals and for enjoying warm and fresh out of the oven.


  • 2-3 pounds chicken breast
  • 1 cup chicken stock/broth
  • Optional:  Kosher salt, black pepper


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F.
  2. Trim any fatty pieces from your chicken breast.  Transfer the chicken breast to the bottom of an enameled Dutch Oven.  Lay the chicken breast pieces in a single layer if possible.  Some overlapping is fine. 
  3.  Season the chicken with salt and pepper if you'd like.  I like to season my chicken but this step is optional.  
  4. Pour 1 cup of chicken stock or chicken broth over top of the chicken in the Dutch Oven. 
  5. Place the lid on top of the Dutch Oven. Transfer your Dutch Oven to your preheated oven.
  6. Cook the chicken for 90 minutes.  After 90 minutes, check to make sure your chicken has reached an internal temperature of at least 165°F.
  7. Remove the Dutch Oven from the oven and transfer the chicken to a mixing bowl.  Using two forks, shred the chicken.  The chicken should be tender and easily pull apart.  
  8. Mix some of the juices leftover in the Dutch Oven into the pulled chicken if you'd like.  
  9. Serve the pulled chicken immediately or save for later!
