Almost Summer.....
A summer barbecue is one of life's simple pleasures
This weekend, many of us across our country will be gathering together to honor and celebrate Memorial Day. Barbecues will be held at many homes and we will smell the aromas of burgers, briskets and smoked ribs. Chicken on the grill can be divine, but what do we do, when we are not skilled at an outdoor grill? Miss Judy asked me this very question! She wanted to host a holiday barbecue, but she wanted an idea that would be easier for her to prepare for her family and her guests. Hey, I have a great recipe for you! A homemade barbecue sauce that you can do in your crockpot! The truth of the matter is, once you have homemade barbecue sauce, you will never buy a store-bought brand again. 

4 large skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons mustard
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 dashes hot pepper sauce
8 sandwich rolls, split
Place the chicken breasts into the bottom of a slow cooker. In a bowl, stir together the ketchup, mustard, lemon juice, garlic powder, maple syrup, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder, cayenne pepper, and hot sauce until the mixture is well blended.
 Pour the sauce over the chicken, set the cooker to Low, and cook for 6 hours. Shred the chicken with two forks, and cook for 30 more minutes. Serve the chicken and sauce spooned into the sandwich rolls!

  1. I love barbeque and would be hard press to say what region has the best. I do like you've done this recipe with chicken and think my grands will enjoy it. I'm thinking of trying your sauce with a vegetarian version for myself, XOXO


I so love receiving your thoughts and comments. I also hope you found something that made you smile.
