Good morning, in some places Good Afternoon. I'm sorry I'm running late today. It's been one of those years.
Here in Utah the temps are reaching normal for this time of year, three digits. So simple is the key. I am going to share something very simple, not even a recipe really. Shredded BBQ chicken sandwiches.
Every week, usually Monday, we have Papa and Nana day when all the kids and grandkids come over for dinner. It's mostly potluck, but Nana always does the meat or main course.
My chicken is already cooking. All I do is throw some boneless breasts in the Crockpot with BBQ sauce on high for about an hour, then turn it to low let it slowly cook all day. About 2pm I'll take a fork and shred it and let it simmer until dinner. I serve it on bakery buns, hoagie or smaller hard rolls. I'm sure you can use hamburger buns also.
That's it! Do I make home made sauce? Nope I use Kroger KC style Hickory smoked BBQ sauce from a bottle. If you have a good recipe to use it would probably be awesome. But I'm just too lazy.
Then the kids bring the sides and we have a fun time with the family.
Wine? Yes tonight I'm having a nice crisp white:
Guenoc (is now Langtry Estate & Vineyards)
2008 Sauvignon Blanc
Lake County Sauvignon Blanc has notes of pineapple, guava, and honeysuckle, with lush fruit flavors followed by a bright, crisp finish. (Yeah I got that straight from the bottle. LOL)
Tell me what your favorite easy summer recipe is...
