1 1/2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1 large yellow onion, diced
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 cup barbecue sauce
1 cup root beer
1/2 tsp salt
about 5 big splashes of Tabasco
the oil in a large skillet over high heat. When hot, add the chicken
thighs and brown quickly on both sides --- this should take about 4
minutes per side.
Place the browned
chicken thighs in your slow cooker. Top with the diced onions, barbecue
sauce and root beer. Turn heat to HIGH and cook for 1 hour. After an
hour, turn down heat to LOW and cook for 6 more hours.
6 hours, remove chicken thighs from slow cooker. Place in a bowl and
pull chicken apart with two forks. It should be incredibly tender at
this point! Once shredded, place chicken back in slow cooker and mix
well with sauce. Season with salt and Tabasco to taste.
