Mom’s Club Recipes: Pulled Chicken Sandwiches in Slow Cooker
December 3, 2010 § Leave a Comment
Before I get to Liane’s recipe, I want to let you know that I baked the Orange Cornmeal Crisps yesterday and…I think I love them. The cookie is buttery and shortbready, yet not too heavy thanks to the crispness of the cornmeal. The glaze is very sweet, so it’s impossible for me to eat more than one cookie. Which is a good thing, I suppose. However, I got to thinking about what could balance the sweetness, and I decided to trying handling them as I handle many of my “problems”: by adding dark chocolate. In this case, dipping the bottom of the cookies in melted 85% dark chocolate.
While the chocolate didn’t exactly balance the sweetness, it did add a nice layer of slightly bitter chocolate flavor. Next time I may skip the glaze altogether and just dip half the cookie in melted dark chocolate. I can say with 99.995% certainty that these babies, glazed or unglazed, will appear at the Christmas party. And they’re Peter approved. He had two for breakfast this morning. What? It’s Friday.
Oh, in addition to the butter and eggs, you should use organic oranges since you’re using the zest. Do you really want pesticides and insecticides in your zest? I didn’t think so.
Now here is Liane’s Mom’s Club Recipe of the week:
I got this recipe from my sister who is a weight watchers lifetime member…. my kids really liked it and so did my hubby – but he said the chicken breast was too dry so next time I did half breast and half thighs ( boneless of course).
It seems too easy but here goes….
Pulled Chicken Sandwiches in Slow Cooker
1-2 lbs boneless chicken breast or thighs
1 small onion
Whole Wheat buns
- Chop up one onion fine mix it with 3/4 a bottle of favorite BBQ sauce
- Pour over chicken
-Add 1/2 cup water
-Place on Slow for 8 hours
- Just before ready to serve – take two forks and “shred” the chicken
- Place on whole wheat rolls
Just a side note I usually serve this with green beans and french fries….
[I haven't tried this either, although it sounds like an easy and relatively healthy meal. I would just be sure to buy barbeque sauce that doesn't contain high fructose corn syrup and other "junk." The green beans are a nice side, but I'd replace the french fries with roasted sweet potatoes! - pwa]
