Do you love a good BBQ sandwich? You have to check out my very favorite Crock Pot BBQ Ranch Chicken Sandwiches. They are incredibly easy to make and quite tasty if I do say so myself!
I just toss 8 boneless skinless thighs in my slow cooker and sprinkle liberally with seasoned salt… I like Penzeys Smoky Seasoned Salt but Lawry’s Seasoned Salt does just fine too.
I then pour 1 cup of my favorite BBQ Sauce over the top and put a lid on it.
That is it.
You can literally have dinner on in 5 minutes.
I just love the taste of BBQ and Ranch together.
They should so get married.
She is tangy and sweet. He is cool and a little spicy.
A match made in heaven I tell ya.
Just grab a thigh out of the fridge and push down on it with a fork and it is the perfect size and shred for a nice sandwich.
Don’t over cook.
These thighs were perfect after 3 hours on high.

Slow Cookers cook a lot hotter these days than back in yo mama’s day. I highly recommend getting a Programmable Slow Cooker to help manage the “heat wave” ;). The programmable models let you not only choose the time but also the temperature (unlike the old Smart Pots that choose the temp based on the time you chose) and then it automatically turns the heat down to warm.

Yep. It should work just fine. Just make sure you don’t over cook.
