Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken BBQ

For those warm summer evenings when it's too hot to turn on the oven and you think you'll croak if you have to, try this! Start the crock pot in the cool of the morning and by the time dinnertime rolls around, you'll be set! Bake the potatoes in the microwave, and it's a meal, Neal!

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken BBQ

6 – 8 frozen chicken breasts
½ cup Italian salad dressing
1 16-ounce bottle bbq sauce
2 tablespoons Worchestershire sauce
½ cup brown sugar

5 – 6 baked potatoes
Shredded cheddar cheese

Place frozen chicken breasts in slow cooker/crock pot. Combine the rest of the ingredients and pour over chicken. Cook on low 6 – 8 hours or until chicken is fork tender. Shred chicken and stir with bbq mixture to combine. Ladle over baked potatoes. Sprinkle with cheese. Yum!

I used chicken thighs instead of breasts because that's what I had....
And because I was a cooking loser that day and started late, I grilled the chicken first...
....and let it cook for about 4 hours in the crock pot
Turned out great!!
