Today I Cooked ~~~~ Crock Pot CocaCola Barbecue Chicken
I saw this recipe on Pinterest this week so I thought I would try it. The recipe is right there in the photograph --- 5 ingredients --- but at the end of this post will be the link if you want to read the recipe from Six Sisters Stuff. I put salt and pepper on my chicken just because I can't imagine not salt & peppering chicken. :) I am assuming you just discard that lemon when it is done. It is in my crock pot right now and it smells ... good. Ok, it smells a little weird --- Coke, lemon, BBQ sauce and onion --- but I am thinking positive! Tomorrow my two daughters are coming to make apple bread, pumpkin bread, and banana bread with me so I will make potato salad, baked beans, and dinner rolls to serve with the BBQ chicken for our lunch. I will let you know what we think of the BBQ chicken tomorrow. :) I make my potato salad using leftover mashed potatoes, boiled eggs-diced, sweet pickles-diced, a splash of pickle juice, onion-diced, a bit of garlic salt or garlic powder, and stir in plain old yellow mustard and Miracle Whip until it looks right. I will make it tonight since it tastes better the next day after the flavors have a chance to marry. Did you know if you put a teaspoon of baking soda in the water when boil your eggs the shells practically fall off? No egg stuck to the shell. I have my mom's recipe for baked beans but I will just open a can of Bush's Baked Beans and stick in the oven for a bit with the dinner rolls tomorrow. Rolls won't be homemade. I love Sister Schubert's dinner rolls. I buy them frozen in a bag and you can bake just one or two----works for me since I normally eat alone. And of course, no one with Sister Schubert Rolls, CocaCola, Miracle Whip or Hunt's Barbeque Sauce knows who I am or gave me anything for saying I like their products. However, if you have never tried Sister Schubert Rolls you are missing out because they are wonderful. Here is the link for the recipe:
WELL, IT IS DONE----before I put it in the fridge for the night I tasted it. This recipe is a bit of a puzzle to me. I am not sure what I expected. Not crazy about it. Maybe different strokes for different folks.
The broth/juice is too watery to serve over mashed potatoes, or put on chicken if serving it on a bun. If you try this recipe please let me know how yours turned out.Monday---I hated it, one daughter ate some but would not take the leftovers home for her family, other daughter said she did not dislike it. We give this recipe zero stars.
