Boneless chicken breasts are amongst the worst things to put in a slow cooker. They have no connective tissue to break down, no fat, no gelatin. Any low and slow method with breasts will likely result in dry stringy unpleasant. The cook time that breasts would require is so short that it negates the only real benefit of a slow cooker: set it and forget it.

You'd be better served by quickly poaching the chicken, shredding it and mixing it with the BBQ sauce.
