As you may know, sometimes I buy a lot of chicken. Then I freeze it. Then I don't know what to do with it. Then I get confused on how to thaw it. Then I don't like the texture of it once I thaw it. So I found this awesome slow cooker BBQ chicken recipe where you put frozen chicken directly into the slow cooker. That is my kind of recipe. It also cuts back on the amount of time I actually have to spend touching raw chicken. The recipe is found here from Allrecipes.com. I followed it pretty close (except for actually measuring the ingredients, I like estimating) and used Stubb's Spicy BBQ Sauce because it tastes good. I also shred the chicken at some point during cooking when it just naturally sort of starts to fall apart.
And if you really want to, you can turn this in to a much healthier version of the traditional BBQ sandwich like I did here. I'm pretty sure chicken breast bbq is healthier than pork bbq and then I made slaw using the pre packaged shredded cabbage and reduced fat mayo (I also actually cut the amount of mayo down). I added a little extra vinegar for tang. And then I used an Arnold's Sandwich Thins Bun which only has 100 calories. Voila. Healthier BBQ Sandwich. And the leftovers of this would be great for these quesadillas.
Do you like Pork BBQ and/or BBQ chicken or is that just a North Carolina thang?
Do you have any recipes that you "lighten" up for healthiness?
