Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Sriracha Asian hot chili sauce
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs (about 8 thighs)
  • 3/4 cup brown ale
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 12 slider buns
  • Sweet pickles and additional Sriracha sauce, optional

Directions

In a 3- or 4-qt. slow cooker, combine the first eight ingredients. Add chicken and ale; toss to coat. Cook, covered, on low until chicken is tender, 6-8 hours. Remove meat; when cool enough to handle, shred with two forks.
Strain cooking juices; skim fat. Transfer juices to a small saucepan; bring to a boil. In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and water until smooth; stir into saucepan. Return to a boil, stirring constantly; cook and stir until thickened, about 5 minutes. Add chicken to the sauce; toss to coat. Serve on buns, with pickles and additional Sriracha sauce if desired. Yield: 12 servings.

Test Kitchen tips
  • Look for ale that packs a punch, and you’ll have a fantastic crowd-pleasing meal that takes only about five minutes of active prep time before the chicken goes into the slow cooker.
  • It's OK to be a little heavy-handed with the Sriracha if you love it spicy. And you can always squeeze on more after you assemble your sandwich.
  • While many of you love chicken breasts, chicken thighs are perfect for this dish. They stay moist, tender and juicy even after a long time in the slow cooker.
