  • 6 boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 1/3 cup salted butter
  • 1/4 cup erythritol
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste (Organic)
  • 2 tablespoons yellow mustard
  • 2 tablespoons spicy brown mustard
  • 1 tablespoon liquid smoke
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce (Organic)


  • Add 1/3 Cup Salted Butter, 1/4 Cup Red Wine Vinegar, 1/4 Cup Chicken Stock, 1/4 Cup Organic Tomato Paste, 2 Tbsp.
  • Yellow Mustard, 2 Tbsp.
  • Spicy Brown Mustard, 1 Tbsp.
  • Liquid Smoke, 1 Tbsp.
  • Soy Sauce, 2 tsp.
  • Chili Powder, 1 tsp.
  • Cumin, 1 tsp.
  • Cayenne Pepper, and 1 tsp.
  • Red Boat Fish Sauce to a container.
  • Add 1/4 Cup Erythritol to this.
  • Stir the sauce very well until everything is combined.
  • Taste the sauce now to see whether you want a tangier/sweeter sauce.
  • Don't worry about salt here, I add salt at the very end once it's on the plate.
  • If you want tangier, add more vinegar.
  • If you want sweeter, add more erythritol (or add some Stevia).
  • The sauce does change flavor as you're cooking it, since the fat and juice of the chicken get released.
  • Add your frozen chicken thighs to your slow cooker.
  • If you're using fresh chicken thighs, that's no problem also.
  • Pour your BBQ sauce over the chicken so that each piece is coated on top.
  • Will You Be at Home? Put the lid on the slow cooker and let it cook for 2 hours.
  • Are You Going Out? Add 1/3 Cup Butter, turn to low and let cook for 7-10 hours.
  • After you turn the slow cooker on, measure out 1/3 cup butter (that's 5.33 tablespoons).
  • Let it sit and get to room temperature as the chicken cooks.
  • After 2 hours, you should have a lot of juice from the chicken.
  • Submerge your chicken underneath all of the juice.
  • Add your butter and spread it out a little bit over the chicken.
  • Turn your slow cooker to high and allow to cook for an additional 3-4 hours.
  • After 3-4 hours, your chicken should be fully cooked.
  • Get 2 forks and shred the chicken until no large pieces remain.
  • Keep the slow cooker on high and remove the lid, cooking for 45 minutes additional time.
  • After 45 minutes, your sauce should have reduced about 1 inch.
  • Mix the chicken into the sauce and serve! Optional: Sprinkle coarse sea salt over the chicken when it goes onto the plate.
  • This adds a slight texture difference if eaten within 10 minutes, but also adds the much needed saltiness.
  • Additionally, you can add a few drops of chili paste and a small sprinkle of curry powder for color.
