  • 2.5 lbs Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs
  • 1 cup BBQ Sauce (I used Sweet Baby Ray's)
  • ½ cup Honey
  • 2 tablespoon Ketchup


  • Combine BBQ sauce, honey, and ketchup together.
  • Add chicken into crock pot and turn on high.
  • Pour in the sauce mixture and let cook 4-5 hours, or until the chicken is easily shredded.
  • Serve on its own or as sandwiches.


I found boneless skinless chicken thighs at Walmart. However, if you can't find them just buy a 3.5 lb package of regular chicken thighs and remove the skin. The bones can easily be taken out after the chicken is done cooking.
You can use chicken breasts, but they dry out easier. Chicken thighs will be more moist and flavorful.
The sauce will appear runny by the end of cooking, but the more you shred the chicken the more the sauce incorporates into the chicken.
