"A great way to make chicken thighs. My kids love this recipe. I have made this with boneless thighs and breasts also. Adjust cooking time if using other form of chicken."

Servings Per Recipe: 6
"This is pretty good. Not to mention super quick and easy!
*Quick note in regards to so many comments about the chicken skin.
Removing the chicken skin takes away a lot of flavor. My suggestion. Before you put anything in the crock pot. Season the chicken on both sides with a little salt and fresh ground pepper. Heat a heavy skillet on a high heat. Once it is hot put about 1 tbsp of oil in the pan and then place your thighs skin side down for about 3-4 minutes. Just long enough to crisp and brown the skin. Flip the chicken pieces over and let the other side brown for about 2 minutes. Then throw it in your crockpot and cover in sauce.
Sure you have an extra pan to wash but I think you'll be pleased with the results. It makes the skin chewy and full of flavor instead of rubbery and gross, plus you've released most of the chicken grease/fat from the skin in the skillet so you shouldn't have much more in the crock pot.
Hope that helps, happy cooking!"
"These were good but I should have skinned the thighs I used before cooking. There was a LOT of grease on top. The flavor was good, though - I'll make these again, just skinning the chicken first."
"Very good flavor. I used regular chicken thighs (with the skin) so it had a fair amount of grease floating on top when I first lifted the lid. Nothing my handy-dandy turkey baster couldn't handle! Thanks."
"Very good flavor! I used 6 bone-in chicken thighs and 6 drumsticks. I removed the skin from both before putting it the crockpot. The honey barbecue flavor fully permeated the meat while cooking. I cooked these for 4 hours and they were perfectly cooked."
"quick and easy to prepare. perfect for a busy day meal. searing the skin is a must. i followed this suggestion plus turning the sauce into a slurry and this turned out well. I will make it again."
"Fast recipe and delicious. My kids ate seconds and that rarely happens. Thanks for a yummy winner!"
"I took the advice from a few reviewers and removed the skin and fat from the thighs. I also removed the chicken when it was finished cooking and thickened up the sauce with some cornstarch then added the chicken back for about 15 minutes on high. Served over rice with brocolli on the side. The family enjoyed the meal, fantastic for an evening of practices and lessons!"
"So easy and so delicious. Followed the recipe exactly,using skinless thighs. Next time I will use less honey than the recipe calls for. Will definitely share this recipes with friends!"
"Great chicken! I made with b/s chicken thight and cooked it for about 4 hours. Turned the crock pot to the warm setting and added a little cornstarch/water slurry to thicken the sauce a little. Turned out great. Nice way to dress up plain BBQ sauce. this sauce would also be good on grilled chicken, may have to try that... Made for PRMR."
"Very delicious flavor! I used legs and drumsticks and did have a large amount of fat to strain off. It also made the sauce not very thick. Next time, I will used boneless breasts and see if the sauce is a bit thicker and "saucier." The flavor was wonderful and everyone loved it and definitely will keep this one on hand. Thanks!"
"I gave this recipe 4 stars. My family liked these thighs. This was such a easy recipe! Since I had to cook my chicken thighs closer to 10 hours I used frozen chicken thighs. They held their shape wonderfully they didn't fall apart like chicken cooked in the crockpot sometimes does. Over all I will so make this again! Thanks for posting a yummy recipe!

"YUM-O! Nothing to add except that it's 5 WW points/serving if you use 6 thighs for 6 servings."
"Wow! These were great! Put these in the crock pot before we left for church and by the time we got home they were done and the smell when we walked in the door was fantastic. I did use boneless skinless thighs (what I use for almost every chicken recipe) and served these with rice and broccoli for an awesome meal. Thanks for posting this Bonette! Can't wait to make these again. Made for Fall 2009 PAC."
"This was the first thing I made in my new crock pot! These were delicious, meat feel right off the bone. But they are very saucy. I used @ 12 drumsticks. I had difficulty with the timing since I tried to use a meat probe. Bad idea. But I figured it out, and the chicken was great! Don't have an accurate total time for this recipe."
"Easy meal to fix in the summer so you don't have to turn on the oven! The meat was fall-off-the bone tender. I liked it but DH wasn't that crazy about it."
"This was the first thing I ever made in my slow cooker, and it turned out perfectly! The meat just fell off the bones! I left out the hot pepper sauce though since 3 out of the 4 of us have sensitive tongues. Thanks for sharing!"
"This was such an easy supper! Thank heavens for the crockpot! The sauce was very good but the chicken was a little dry. I would cut the cooking time back...(I did 6 hours on low) Thanks for posting!"
"This is a wonderful crock pot recipe. I used boneless, skinned thighs and it worked fine. I did end up with more sauce than was needed even though we spooned it over our rice because it was so yummy. I did make a little goof and used a healthy teaspoon of dry mustard instead of the prepared. It tasted fine. It smells so good coming into the house at the end of the work day. I will be making this many more times. Thanks for sharing your recipe!"
"I don't want to rate it cause it would be unfair. The 2 before be gave 5 stars. I really didn't like the taste that the sauce gave to the chicken. I don't know why. Maybe I did something wrong. It was too greasy. Maybe skinless would be better. Maybe homemade barbecue sauce would be better. So sorry again Bonnette. Thanks for posting. Made for Please Review My Recipe."
"Yummy! I used chicken thighs. For the bbq sause I used Sweet Baby Ray's Sweet Onion. I served with buttered noodles and peas. Even my husband who doesn't care for chicken liked this."
