Servings: 8 (if used in sandwiches)


  • 3 lbs about 5-6 count boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 1/2 cups BBQ Sauce I used Sweet Baby Rays Honey BBQ
  • 1/2 medium onion grated (with juice)
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar


  1. Stir together all sauce ingredients in a 5-6 qt slow cooker.
  2. Add chicken and turn to coat. Cover and cook on high 3 to 4 hours or on low for 6-7 hours. Chicken is done when cooked through and easy to shred.
  3. Remove chicken to a cutting board and shred each breast using two forks. Place shredded chicken back in the crock pot and stir to coat with the yummy sauce.
