READY IN: 8hrs 10mins
Recipe by Kree

This is almost too easy to be called a recipe, but I had to share it anyway. I came up with it one night when I wanted a nice meal but wasn't feeling too motivated. I love Crock-Pot cooking!

Thank you for posting this recipe. I read all the reviews and found that I had like many of the reviewers used Sweet Baby Rays barbecue sauce. I shred the chicken after 4-5 hours and let it soak up all the sauce. Also, I added a couple teaspons of liquid smoke. I have used this recipe before and intend on using it many times in the future. Great recipe. The taste along with the ease of preparation cannot be beat!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Remove all visible fat from the chicken and toss it in the crock pot.
  2. Place the onion slices on top of the chicken.
  3. Pour the barbecue sauce over top.
  4. You may not need the entire jar, just enough to cover the chicken.
  5. Cook it on LOW for 8 hours or until the chicken is nice and tender.
  6. Shred the chicken with a fork and knife; scoop the mixture onto the bottom buns and top it with the top buns.
  7. Or, if you're like my dad, you might prefer leaving the breasts whole and eating it that way.
  8. Voila!
  9. An easy weeknight meal that doesn't heat up your kitchen in the summertime!
  10. I love this with potato chips and a carrot and raisin salad.
