  • 3 cups bbq sauce, divided
  • 1 cup water

  • Instructions

  • Add chicken, 2 cups bbq sauce, and water to your slow cooker. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or 4 hours on high. 30 minutes before serving, drain the liquid from the slow cooker, then return to low heat and add 1 cup bbq sauce and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
