This is a simple chicken barbecue for the slow cooker. The chicken and two other ingredients are combined and slow cooked to perfection. Serve this tasty chicken shredded or chopped on toasted buns with coleslaw, and pass the barbecue sauce!

What You'll Need

  • 3 boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1 1/2 cups spicy barbecue sauce (your choice, plus more for serving)
  • 1 medium onion (sliced or chopped)
  • 4-6 toasted buns
  • Optional: coleslaw (for serving)

How to Make It

  1. Wash the chicken breasts and pat dry. Put in a slow cooker with 1 1/2 cups of barbecue sauce and the onion. Stir to coat the chicken. Cover and cook on HIGH for 3 hours.
  2. Remove the chicken breasts to a plate and shred or chop. Return the shredded chicken to the sauce in the slow cooker; stir to blend. Cover and cook for 10 minutes longer.
  3. Serve the shredded chicken on toasted buns with coleslaw and extra barbecue sauce, if desired.

    Serves 4 to 6.
