Add the chicken to the bottom of your slow cooker. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the ketchup, molasses, brown sugar, cider vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, paprika, chili powder, onion powder, salt and liquid smoke.
Pour the sauce on top of the chicken and cook on low for 4-6 hours or high for 3-4 until chicken is tender enough to shred. Shred the chicken and mix water with cornstarch. Add to the bbq sauce and let the sauce thicken up for about 30 more minutes.
