We have tried crock-pot chicken recipes over and over and it is really our least favorite method to cook. This sauce and pre-broiling method is really good and we did the thighs 40 min on the grill, indirect. We basted with this sauce at 20 min mark and then again just before removing from grill. Removed at 160 degrees internal and let sit 3-4 min. covered. Temp moved to 163 degrees and they were perfect.

Easy and delicious! Followed the directions exactly with the exception of broiling the chicken thighs, because I was in a hurry. I literally threw frozen chicken thighs into the slow cooker, poured the sauce over it and forgot it for five hours. The chicken was moist and tender, with plenty of sauce to go around! I did thicken the sauce a bit by taking 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid and whisking in 1 tablespoon of flour and then returned it to the slow cooker. Served it with hot buttered rice and corn on the cob. Will definitely make this again. I bet this would be great with pork chops too!

This was good, but not fabulous. I think I'm going to use a better bbq sauce.....I just used an off brand and that was probably stupid of me, lol! But it didn't sit well with my tummy. Not the recipes fault.....

This is a wonderful weeknight dish. It's great to come home from work and have this all ready to go. I like serving it with rice pilaf. The sauce is so good!

Great taste and very tender! Used boneless chicken thighs instead and cook for 4 1/2 hours on low. Didn't broil first and it was fine.
