Weeknight meals in my house can turn into chaos relatively easily. Either my two-year-old has a melt down or my five-year-old destroys half the living room, making dinner run an hour late. Even when dinner is running on time, in the summer my kitchen turns into a sauna, making cooking less than pleasant in the 90 degree heat. I love finding slow-cooker recipes, that are quick and easy for hot, chaotic weeknight meals. Recently, All You magazine had a recipe for slow-cooker barbecue chicken that looked easy and delicious.
With only eight ingredients this recipe is extremely easy to prep in the slow-cooker. With no vegetables to prepare, this recipe takes less than five minutes to get together and start. The remainder of the six hours is done completely in the slow-cooker. I followed this recipe as states, with one modification. I topped my pulled chicken with the Napa cabbage slaw from a previous fish taco recipe found here.
This recipe turned out well. The addition of the slaw was excellent and made for a nice texture. For a chicken breast recipe the meat turned out very tender and delicious, similar to pulled pork. I like that few ingredients are used and there is basically no prep, which is perfect during a busy weeknight dinner.
