Saucy Chicken Thighs Recipe

Publisher Photo
Everyone raves about how sweet the sauce is for these slow-cooked chicken thighs. They’re such a breeze because they simmer away while you do other things. They’re ideal appetizers, but you can also add your favorite side for a nice meal. –Kim Puckett, Reagan, Tennessee

"Great taste and very tender! Used boneless chicken thighs instead and cook for 4 1/2 hours on low."

MY REVIEW

"Surprisingly these have a smoky flavor even though they are cooked in the slow cooker all day. The chicken does just fall off the bone. The meat is very moist. We used sweet baby ray's bbq sauce. Very good, extremely easy. This dish went well with corn on the cob and mac and cheese."
