How to Store

Store leftover BBQ chicken in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Reheat gently in a saucepan over low heat or in the microwave, adding a splash of water or additional BBQ sauce if needed to keep the chicken moist.

Tips for Perfect BBQ Chicken

  • Choose a high-quality BBQ sauce with a flavor profile you love, as it significantly influences the dish’s taste.
  • For a richer flavor, consider mixing in a small amount of liquid smoke with the BBQ sauce.
  • Shred the chicken in the slow cooker with two forks for ease and to allow it to soak up the sauce for extra juiciness.
