Well lately I haven’t made anything exciting and that is not an understatement. I’ve been on kind of a “spring cleaning” kick of my pantry (Spring? In Oregon? No such thing, I know) and have been eating a lot of random things that I have left over. Literally my last two shopping trips have only consisted of fruits, veggies, and dairy perishables like almond milk and greek yogurt. My meals have mostly been tilapia since I bought a giant bag of it earlier this winter and I have paired the fist with various starches and veggies. Nothing to complain about, since I like fish, but nothing worth photographing and sharing either.
BUT, I do have a recipe I tried a while back that I want to share.
I don’t know about you, but I am in love with pulled pork. I adore it. The cook at my sorority used to make it for lunch every once and a while and I would go crazy for it. The problem I have with pulled pork, however, is the random chunks of fat that seem to always pop up in it, regardless of who makes it or where you get it. I used to spend too much time picking through the vat of pulled pork that our sorority cook had made to find the perfect pieces for my sandwich. I am very picky.
When I found this recipe for pulled chicken in the crock pot I knew I had to try it. Plus it is literally the most simple crock pot recipe of all time, so obviously I was on board to give it a whirl!
“Pulled” Chicken Sandwiches
- 3 chicken breasts
- 1 1/2 cups of your favorite BBQ sauce
- Combine all the ingredients in the crock pot with 1/4 cup of water.
- Cook on high 3-4 hours.
- Shred chicken and serve on roll of choice with desired toppings.
Literally, have you ever seen a more simple recipe? It also works well as a make ahead freezer meal that can easily be thawed and thrown in the crock pot when you’re ready to make it. For those details and other super simple recipes click HERE
I served mine on whole wheat buns topped with some cole slaw. I found the cole slaw in the bagged lettuce section, it was like a little kit that had shredded cabbage and a sauce packet that you just mixed together. Again, super simple!
Again, I apologize for the horrendous picture quality. The fluorescent lights in my kitchen along with my horrible camera phone don’t exactly lead to the greatest quality. I will break out my real camera soon! I promise!
Overall, delicious. I WILL be making this again!
