In addition to the sauerkraut and pork dish, he also loaded up the crockpot and made some BBQ Chicken.
Granted, I would have preferred he NOT make a whole crockpot of BBQ Chicken as it only has one 'real' use, and that is BBQ chicken. But alas, I can't squash his good intentions...
BBQ Chicken ... seriously easy
6 lbs of boneless skinless chicken breast (I think next time I will suggest chicken thighs with 1 or 2 breast)
1 cube of frozen garlic (or fresh garlic, finely chopped) (Keep an eye out for the garlic tip!)
salt and pepper
finely chopped onion
1/2 cup or so of chicken broth
Sorry for the raw chicken picture, but I wanted you to see how
FINE he chops the
garlic onion (!!) courtesy of the food processor!
And look how MUCH seasoning he uses!
That there be the frozen cube of garlic ... post coming SOON, I promise!
Toss all in a crockpot and cook til chicken is done, about 2 to 3 hours on high or 5 to 6 hours on low. Every crockpot is different which drives me NUTS but it is what it is :)
Once chicken is cooked, drain the liquid out of crock and allow the chicken to cool enough where you can shred it with 2 forks OR your hands (oh, go for it!) ... top with bbq sauce of choice and mix well. Make it as wet or dry as you like. Hubby added a touch of garlic powder too at this point.
Serve on a toasted roll with coleslaw on the side. Enjoy! (Seriously? We used leftover burger and hot dog buns, I buttered up the insides and laid flat in skillet to toast) ... no slaw to be had so we skipped that part. AND we've been eating it just plain in a bowl it's so dang tasty!
NOTE: We used a bbq sauce made by Jack Daniels that was EXTRA SPICY. Also expensive, but a gift ... price tag was $9.95. Some dang good stuff ... and well, like the silver, if you have it, you might as well use it!
