Slow Cooker Barbecue Chicken from Kalyn’s Kitchen has a delicious low-carb sauce that uses sugar-free ketchup! The adults ate the barbecue chicken in lettuce cups, but see the recipe to get more suggestions for how to eat it!
I first made this Slow Cooker Barbecue Chicken when I had some young nephews coming to visit. They weren’t too interested in the idea of lettuce wraps, but they loved the chicken inside quesadillas as much as I enjoyed it in a lettuce wrap. And my barbecue sauce uses sugar-free ketchup and Monkfruit sweetener, which makes this perfect for a low-carb meal.
If you like the idea of a barbecue sauce that’s not loaded with sugar, check out my Low-Carb Slow Cooker Pulled Pork recipe too. That’s also a tasty option, and both of these recipes can be served in a variety of ways!

Why is this recipe a favorite for me?
I’ve always been a fan of the flavor of barbecued chicken and barbecued pork, but I always found most barbecue sauce to be too sweet, and I didn’t want all that sugar. But once I discovered a tasty sugar-free ketchup I created my own sauce and really enjoyed this Slow Cooker Barbecue Chicken served inside lettuce wraps!
