  • 3-4 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs (about 8 thighs)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper


  1. Place chicken thighs (don't trim the fat) in the slow cooker.

  2. Sprinkle the chicken thighs with salt and pepper.

  3. Cover and let cook on high for 2-3 hours.

  4. Once the chicken thighs are done, remove from the slow cooker You can shred them with two forks, or leave them whole.

  5. Place chicken thighs in your airtight storage container. Take 3 to 4 tablespoons of the fat from the slow cooker and generously pour over your chicken thighs. This will help them keep moist during storage and reheating, plus it makes the chicken extra tasty.

  6. Store in the refrigerator for up to one week.
