Weekend Cooking - Crock Pot Barbeque Chicken and Garlic Cheese Biscuits

Another Pinterest find is a little blog called Stick a Fork in It.
I'm always on the lookout for easy week-night recipes that can be put together ahead of time and/or thrown in the crock-pot.
I'm just exhausted when I get home everyday...and I don't want to even think...or make any more decisions.
That's also another reason why I'm a much happier camper when I have a Menu Plan for the week.

We enjoy barbeque chicken, and I used to make it in the oven before we had a nest full of children.  Then, it seemed like I could never get the chicken cooked correctly.  I was worried sick that the chicken wiould be raw and I wouldn't notice bc of all the barbeque sauce...and I'd make my little people sick.  I finally just gave up and quit making it.

Until I found this little pin...

The exact recipe is available through the link.

I literally dumped all of the ingredients in the crock-pot the morning we were going to have it for dinner.
I did get a little concerned when the recipe called for vinegar...I actually almost didn't put it in there.  I'm a sweet barbeue sauce fan...not tangy.
No need to worry though!! 
This stuff was delicious!
And the sauce has a kicked up taste to it as well...thanks to the red pepper flakes.
We ate the chicken as intact breasts with some lima beans and these garlic biscuits below, but you could just as easily shred the chicken and make pulled barbeque chicken sandwiches.
This one is definitely a keeper!

  1. Man that looks good. The crock pot is such a life-saver sometimes. A little vinegar brings out the brightness of the flavors, so that's a great addition. The biscuits look good too.

  2. I have a frozen chicken in my freezer just waiting for this recipe. My family will be happily surprised this week. Thanks for sharing.
