Saucy Slow-Cooked Chicken Thighs

I have another great Crock pot recipe for you today. I'm always looking for new and creative chicken recipes to add to my repertoire, and this is definitely a good one. As you know, I've been very into all things BBQ throughout this pregnancy, so I thought this chicken was just wonderful. It has a great balance of sweet and spicy, and we all really loved it. This chicken made for a great comfort-food dinner with green beans and fried potatoes on the side. We had a couple of thighs left over, which I shredded and ate on a sandwich for lunch the next day.

I only recently discovered the hidden grocery store gem that is chicken thighs. Even the boneless ones are really affordable. We all love the flavor of dark meat, so I'm definitely going to be on the look-out for more chicken thigh recipes.

8 boneless chicken thighs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 cups barbecue sauce
1/2 cup honey
2 teaspoons prepared mustard
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/8 to 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce

1. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Place on a broiler pan. Broil 4 to 5 inches from the heat for 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Transfer to a slow cooker.

2. In a small bowl, combine the barbecue sauce, honey, mustard, Worcestershire sauce and pepper sauce. Pour over chicken; stir to coat. Cover and cook on low for 4 to 5 hours or until heated through.

Great flavor and I opted to leave out the hot pepper sauce because I don't like spicy stuff. It was awesome!
