skinny thighs

cooked and thickened

These chicken thighs may be “skinny” but they are juicy and packed with flavor. The thanks go to a slow cooker and a few sugar-free Walden Farms products.

Of course, if you don’t have the sugar-free stuff; regular ketchup, barbecue sauce, and syrup or honey may be used instead, although your thighs will be “fatter” than these “skinny” ones.

15 thighs

I buy the boneless skinless chicken thighs at Costco. They come in a 6-pack, each pack contains five thighs. I used three packs, 15 thighs, for this recipe and put the remaining three packs in the freezer.

Skinny Thighs

12 to 15 boneless skinless chicken thighs, trimmed of all visible fat
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons sugar-free ketchup (such as Walden Farms)
2 tablespoons sugar-free blueberry syrup (such as Walden Farms) or honey
2 tablespoons sugar-free barbecue sauce (such as Walden Farms)
3 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
Freshly ground black pepper

Place the trimmed thighs in a slow cooker. In a medium bowl mix together the remaining ingredients and pour over the thighs.


Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours.


Carefully pour the sauce from the slow cooker into a medium saucepan. Place over high heat and reduce by just over half, or until the sauce is thick like maple syrup.

cooked and thickened

Return sauce to slow cooker, cover, and cook on low for 30 more minutes.
