Slow-Cooked Pulled Barbecue Chicken

The recipe is for a 1 1/2 to 3 quart cooker, however I doubled it and used my 7 quart cooker. Leftovers are excellent on nachos!

1 small white or yellow onion, chopped
1 small clove garlic, minced
4 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1/2 cup ketchup
2 tbs. cider vinegar
2 tbs. light brown sugar
1 tbs. olive oil
1 1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/4 tsp. chipotle chili powder
1/4 tsp. salt
2 to 4 soft hamburger buns

1. Sprinkle the onion and garlic over the bottom of the crock and arrange the chicken thighs on top.

2. In a small bowl, stir together the ketchup, cider vinegar,
brown sugar, oil, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder, chipotle chili powder, and salt; pour over the thighs. Cover and cook on LOW for 7 to 8 hours, or until the chicken is fork tender.

3. Remove the chicken from the slow-cooker. With two forks, pull apart for the meat into shredded chunks; return to the slow-cooker and stir to combine. Cover and leave on the KEEP WARM setting until ready to serve. Served spooned on to warmed hamburger buns.
