As a busy mom of three active boys, I am always on the hunt for easy and quick weeknight meals. I’m talking 30 minutes or less of work time. Cooking time doesn’t bother me – if it’s in the slow cooker and I don’t have to stand by the stove keeping a close eye on it!
If I’m really honest, I resisted having and using a slow cooker for years. I have no idea why – fear that it might burn the food? However, now it’s one of my absolute favorite kitchen tools! I use mine often now, so it makes me chuckle to think of how resistant I used to be.
This is my absolute favorite slow cooker! It’s wonderful because you can program how high and how long you want to cook your food. My favorite feature is the locking lid so that you can take the crock pot (full of food but doesn’t spill!) to a relative’s house, a friend’s house, a pot luck, a teacher appreciation dinner or anywhere else you need to take it! It really is worth every penny (and makes a terrific birthday or holiday gift!).
This tangy barbeque chicken is perfect! It takes only 5 minutes to whip together the ingredients and turn on the slow cooker. Shredding the chicken takes about 10 minutes (or less). There you have it…a delicious meal with very minimal work!
This chicken dish is perfect for those busy sports and activity nights. You know, those nights when you’re just running and need to grab something quick but don’t want fast food.
My family absolutely loves this chicken! We will eat it plain with rice or noodles occasionally, but we really love it on top of a baked potato. If you really want to get crazy, throw some shredded cheddar cheese on top – it’s simply amazing!
The recipe is below 🙂
