  • 4 skinless chicken breasts boneless or bone-in both work fine
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 1/2 cups barbecue sauce
  • 1/2 cup water


  • Season the chicken with salt and pepper and place in the slow cooker. Combine the bbq sauce and water, and pour over the chicken to submerge.
  • Cover and cook on high for about 3 hours or on low for 4-6 hours, or until tender and cooked through.
  • Remove the chicken from the slow cooker and shred with two forks, discarding the bones if using bone-in chicken.
  • Place the shredded chicken back into the slow cooker and stir in the sauce to coat. Enjoy!


  • Bone-in chicken breasts are more cost effective, and the bones add flavor.
