Let’s Eat | Crock Pot BBQ Chicken

I read somewhere that crock pots were only supposed to be used in the winter or that they were for winter meals only. That made me really mad because I was like 1.) How can you make rules to the way in which I cook my food and 2.) That makes absolutely no sense. Who WANTS to actually cook in the summer? Wouldn’t it make perfect sense to use a crock pot? Anyway I don’t really care what the reasoning behind this thinking is. I have a crock pot. I love my crock pot. And in the summer it is my best friend. So enjoy this tasty crock pot recipe for when you want BBQ chicken but it’s either too hot outside to grill, there’s no way you’re cutting on an oven to bake them, or you simply just don’t have the time to do alll that. ENJOY!20130824-224551.jpg

INGREDIENTS: This is so simple. I’m for real. I’m not one of those people who use the word “simple” then go on to describe something totally opposite. That is NOT me.

1 bag of frozen chicken wings

1 bottle of Sweet Baby Ray’s Honey BBQ Sauce (or a BBQ sauce of your preference. If you’re really fancy you can make your own but I personally don’t have time for that 😉 )

1/2 cup Teriyaki Marinade

Adobo seasoning

Onion Powder

Black Pepper

Dassit. Dassit. Dassit. I’m sorry I don’t use measuring spoons for seasonings I probably should but I don’t soooo…yea season to taste Queens. Season to taste.

WHAT TO DO: This is even simpler. I hate when I’m looking for a quick and easy crock pot recipe and the cooking entails some sort of coming back and altering of the food midway through and I’m just like…no. That’s not easy enough. This is though. I’m for real.

Season chicken to taste and set into crock pot

Pour 1/2 cup of Teriyaki marinade over chicken

Pour 3/4 bottle of BBQ sauce over chicken

Cook on low for 7 hours.

AND there it is. Crock pot chicken that falls off the bone. SO GOOD!

Peace, Love, & Blessings

Let’s Eat This Week & A Note

photo-4

Changing some things ’round here Queens! Starting with this! Instead of boring you guys with my weekly meal plans…which I’m sure you all LOVED (note my sarcasm there) I decided to take on a different approach with my Let’s Eat This Week series. I’m sure you get it bynow. MEAL PLANNING SAVES LIVES. Yes it’s that serious. If you’re a real queen you know this. Ever since I’ve started meal planning my budget loves me, my stomach loves me, my husband loves me, my kids love me, my sanity loves me. I’m telling you. If you’ve not hopped on the bandwagon do so now. Need some ideas? Look here and here.

Ok, since we’ve got the basics down, I decided that I will post a featured recipe from my meal plan each week to help my fellow Queens get inspired. One of the things I struggled with cooking for a family of 5 on a daily basis, somewhere in between my 9 – 5, raising said family, and living life, was food for me was just a means to survive. We ate HORRIBLY. See referenced posts for more on that. And that’s sad coming from me as I’m a foodie at heart. I love Love LOVE food.

My reason for creating this blog for was for real queens to feel empowered to do it ALL. With little time, little resources, or an abundance of both, we can accomplish all we want in life. Be it small or large. And right now, I want to eat. Glorious decadent food. Every night! So that’s what I do.And YOU can too!

So, please bear with me queens as I continue to find my way with this blog! I just want to thank all of you for the love! Every like, comment, follow, and view is important to me! I have so much in store for the future of this blog and I can’t wait to share it all with you!

Peace, Love, & Blessings.
