Yesterday I pulled a ziploc baggie out of our freezer with two big pieces of chicken in it. I stashed it in the fridge to thaw.
By today I realized I had to make something with it. Out came the trusty crockpot. As I've mentioned before, I love cooking in my crockpot. What did I do with the chicken? Most of the time I create the recipe on the spot. Tonight was no exception. I guess I enjoy the challenge.
There were two whole leg/thigh pieces and I tossed them in. I grabbed a bottle of barbecue sauce and threw that on top. (Not the bottle itself, just the sauce. LOL) I almost stopped there but decided it was too strong and needed something else. I decided honey would compliment the sauce and threw that in. Next I boiled a chicken bouillon cube in 1 cup of water and voila...I had chicken broth to toss into the mixture. Cooked it on low for about 4 hours. Well, I have to say...it was a delicious sauce and the chicken was so good it "melted in your mouth."
Another successful crockpot night and I wanted to share it with you.
Plus I've also already made my Ice Cream Potato Salad this year! I usually wait until Memorial Day to kick off "potato salad season," but this year I was so thrilled about the arrival of spring it couldn't wait.
I'd love to hear what you like to make for dinner during the week. Maybe I'll start a dinner post and have gals link to my blog. What could I call it? Something like "Dinner Dilemma Wednesday" or "Mouth Watering Monday?"
Let me know if you like the idea or have any thoughts on what to name it. I just might do it.
