We can’t get enough of BBQ chicken. It’s a staple recipe during the summertime and it would be hard to imagine a 4th of July without it. But, for the rest of the year (or when you don’t feel like getting the grill fired up) it’s nice to be able to make this dish inside and with minimal effort. This is where the Crock Pot comes in really handy.
For this recipe all you have to do is to dump the ingredients into the slow cooker and then set the temperature. That’s it. It literally couldn’t be easier to make this flavorful chicken. The main component of the rich and savory taste is BBQ sauce and you can use whichever brand or flavor is your favorite.
2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken thighs well trimmed of fat
1/4 tsp. dried oregano
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. onion powder

Sprinkle over the oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, and cayenne over the chicken
Pour over the barbecue sauce,
