Do you have a long day ahead? Errands to run, visits to make, shopping to do? Don’t you still want to eat something healthy and savory for dinner? Then go on in the pantry or up on the shelf and grab mom or grandmom’s ol’ crock-pot (slow cooker). Dust it off if you have to.
Take a deep breath…. In your hands – one of the best inventions ever in cooking besides the George Foreman Grill. The crock-pot or slow cooker has been around since the 70s. The first gadget that allowed cooking while you are away from the kitchen without worry of burning and you are guaranteed mouthwatering dishes because it’s all slow cooked.
Crock-pot Barbecued Chicken
2.5 pounds chicken wings or wingettes
1 onion sliced
Salt/pepper (I prefer Mrs Dash)
1/2 cup of chicken stock
Clean and season chicken. Slightly boil chicken (5 minutes).
Place chicken and sliced onions in Crock-pot. Pour the chicken stock over the chicken and cover with barbecue sauce. (Make the sauce your own by adding spices, honey, hot sauce, brown sugar, or whatever you like.)
Set Crock-Pot according to cooking directions (normally 6-8 hours).
Go do whatever you have to do and when you come home, voila! Barbecued chicken that melts in your mouth!
Serve with broccoli and rice or rice and corn (my personal favorite).
