  • Slow Cooker


  • 3 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 large white onion sliced
  • 2 cups BBQ sauce I love Sweet Baby Ray’s


  • Place the chicken and onion in a slow cooker. Top with the BBQ sauce. Cover and cook on low for 6 – 8 hours, or until chicken is fork tender.
  • Turn off slow cooker. Using two forks shred the chicken breasts into beautifully tender pieces. Mix everything together so all the chicken is covered with the BBQ sauce.
  • Serve the chicken on seeded buns with coleslaw.


  • Leftovers can be stored in fridge for up to five days.
  • Refer to post for ideas for using leftover shredded BBQ chicken.
