OK, you connoisseur of the crock pot, you sultan of the slow cooker. I am going to let you in on the best tip you’ll ever receive for making amazing crock pot chicken: Don’t slow cook skinless chicken breasts.
Yes, I know, most every crock pot chicken recipe on Pinterest calls for chicken breasts, but most of them are wrong. Yes, I know, you would also prefer to use chicken breasts.  Don’t do it.
By their simple design, crock pots naturally overcook your meat. This is actually beneficial for tough, fatty cuts of meat, like stew meats, which need the long slow cooking time to render into tender morsels. My Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Pork recipe is a good example of this. However, lean chicken breasts are already tender, and don’t contain enough fatty moisture to withstand overcooking.
Maybe I’m just overly fussy about this stuff, but I hate overcooked chicken. Its dry stringy texture smacks against your teeth with each underwhelming chew.

I found boneless skinless chicken thighs at Walmart. However, if you can't find them just buy a 3.5 lb package of regular chicken thighs and remove the skin. The bones can easily be taken out after the chicken is done cooking.
You can use chicken breasts, but they dry out easier. Chicken thighs will be more moist and flavorful.
The sauce will appear runny by the end of cooking, but the more you shred the chicken the more the sauce incorporates into the chicken.
