Slowcooker Sunday

While I was driving the other day I took notice that the trees around here are already very bare. This transitioning period where fall is not quite fall anymore but kind of winter and it rains even though it feels cold enough to snow kind of stinks. Then we get days like today where the temperatures reach into the high 60's, the sun is shining and you're wearing a light sweater or jacket and you think to yourself
"What a bee-u-tee-full day!".

On days like today, you want to get out there and enjoy it right? Soak up the suns rays in hopes that the gray stay in your pajamas with the curtains pulled closed in a blanket on the couch with a hot steaming cup of coffee while the snow snows and blows days are further away then those terrible weather forecasters say!!

"But I have to cook dinner so we can only be gone for a little while."

NONSENSE.

Pull out your hopefully dearly beloved Crockpot....Slowcooker....Hamilton...whatever you call it....and put this on and go out and enjoy the day!

ZESTY SLOW COOKER CHICKEN BARBECUE

Ingredients
6 frozen skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 (12 ounce) bottle barbeque sauce
1/2 cup Italian salad dressing
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

Directions
Place chicken in a slow cooker. In a bowl, mix the barbeque sauce, Italian salad dressing, brown sugar, and Worcestershire sauce. Pour over the chicken.
Cover, and cook 3 to 4 hours on High or 6 to 8 hours on Low

We have had this on squishy yummy rolls topped with coleslaw as well as served over white rice. I hear this is scrumptious over a baked potato too!

YUM!
A full tummy after a great day enjoyed doing the things you WANT to do.

Now that......is BEE-U-TEE-FULL
