This 2-Ingredient Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken could not be easier, but it’s still wonderfully flavorful and moist.


  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 3 lbs.)
  • 1.5 cups (12 oz.) bbq sauce*, either homemade or store-bought


  1. Lay chicken breasts in the bottom of a slow cooker, and pour the bbq sauce on top. Toss once to combine so that the chicken is evenly coated in the sauce. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours, or on high for 3-4 hours, until the chicken is cooked through and shreds easily.
  2. Use two forks to shred the chicken in the slow cooker, and toss it once more so that it soaks up the remaining juices.
  3. Serve chicken on buns or however you would like, drizzled with some extra bbq sauce if desired.


*If making this recipe gluten-free, be sure to use gluten-free certified BBQ sauce.

**If you would like a sweeter BBQ chicken, you can also add in 1/3 cup packed brown sugar to the slow cooker.
