Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy
It is no secret that I enjoy dining out. My husband’s work travels have enabled me to enjoy wonderful cuisine in some rather exotic locations overseas (I feel blessed!), and when state side, I am continually on the lookout for local epicurean delights.
Getting my chocolate fix at Ristorante San Marco in Zug,
More often, than not though, my dining experiences take place at home. I love to cook. There are those days, however, when time does not allow one to create ala Julia Child. Those days require more of the easy peasy lemon squeezy type of recipe. Today I share with you just that type of recipe. It is one that my son brought home from work for me. Prepared in the crock pot, this barbecued chicken is yummy! This recipe is a keeper!
Did you know that the term “easy peasy lemon squeezy” originates in England from a 1950’s dishwashing detergent jingle?!
This delicious and simple recipe requires these simple ingredients.
Easy Peasy Crockpot Barbecued Chicken
2 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breasts, or skinless chicken breast tenders
1 cup Sweet Baby Ray’s Honey Barbecue Sauce
1/4 cup Wishbone Italian dressing (I use the light)
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/2 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
PAM non-stick spray
Spray crock pot with PAM non-stick spray
Place chicken into crockpot.
Pour barbecue sauce, Italian dressing, light brown sugar, and Worcestershire sauce
over the chicken.
Place cover on crock pot and cook on HIGH for 2.5-3.5 hours, or until done.
(I read the other day, but I do not remember where, that oval crockpots cook quicker.)
Once cooked, shred with chicken. (I use 2 forks for this. )
Place cover back on and let cook in sauce for about 5-10 more minutes.
Serve over a hot baked potato
(Potatoes can be done in the microwave, if you are in a hurry),
or on a fresh potato hamburger bun.
I like my Easy Peasy Crockpot Barbecued Chicken served over a hot baked potato with onion, cheddar cheese, and a sprinkle of coarse black pepper.
I hope that can find a spot to display this cute Julia Child quote. Click on the blue PDF to bring it up to print and frame.
