  • 1 cup bbq sauce I like Sweet Baby Ray's
  • 8 oz cream cheese


  • Place the chicken breasts in the slow cooker.  Cover with barbecue sauce.
  • Cook on high for 3-4 hours. Once cooked (165˚F internal temp) use forks to shred the chicken and mix with the barbecue sauce.
  • Place cream cheese on top of the cooked chicken. Replace lid on the crockpot and let it soften for 5 minutes.  Remove lid and stir in the cream cheese until combined.
