What I Made Monday – Slow Cooker BBQ
We’re having some crazy warm spring weather. Last Monday – 80, this Monday – 85! I decided not to repeat the soup route for this week. Barbecue is much more my style for this weather! I loosely followed an Emeals recipe – very loosely. Also took some suggestions from a friend’s recipe posted on Facebook. The results? Yummmmmmm!
Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken Breasts (6 servings)
2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breasts – do not thaw!
1 cup water
1 cup favorite barbecue sauce
Garlic powder, onion powder, or whatever seasonings you might want
First, I lined my slow cooker with a Reynolds slow-cooker liner. (Side note: these things are awesome! If you don’t currently use them, you must – clean up is a breeze!)
Then I placed the still frozen chicken in the crock.
Poured in the water & barbecue sauce.
Then I sprinkled seasonings on top.
I popped the lid on and programmed my slow cooker to cook on low for 8 hours.
When I got home from work, I shredded the chicken and mixed it back in the juicy sauciness in the cooker.
It warmed while I prepared the rest of dinner – corn and salad. I served the shredded chicken on Orowheat Sandwich Thins with an extra tablespoon of barbecue sauce.
It was a hit with the whole family! Hubby had seconds and lil’ man was over-stuffing his face (as usual). The only thing I would do differently next time is either drain the meat better or not use the sandwich thins as they got soggy bottoms.
