Slow Cooker BBQ WIFEY WUT UP Chicken

Today I had my first foray with raw meat in the slow cooker. It didn’t go well…at first.

I dumped my package of pre sliced tenders into my croc pot, poured some Famous Dave’s BBQ sauce in there, mixed it up and set it on low for 7 hours.

About 5 hours into the simmer sesh- I smelled a combo of delish bbq (I know I don’t eat meat but I like the scent- whatever) and burnt something.

This is what I saw when I opened the lid:

NOT NORMAL.

What did I do? Oh maybe salvage the chicken in the center and pull it out- NO. I decided to stir the pot around and see what happened.

Major fail.

I dipped my pinkie into the sauce and bravely took a taste (even though it had been doing the tango with the chicken) and it tasted like B.S.

Now, at this point I had to make a serious decision – do I scrap the whole thing and saw we should order dinner in or run out to the grocery- buy more chicken and try a different tactic?!??

I am NO quitter, I promised Alex dinner so I ran out and got some more chicken.

This time I mixed 2 cups of Dave’s with a cup of Italian dressing, 1/4 cup of brown sugar and a dash of worstescher sauce and set the croc on high for 3 hours.

This is what happened:

OH HELLS YES.

I served it with some rolls, broccoli, cheesy instant rice and asparagus. And he loved it.

Well …to be fair, he said the sauce could have been a bit thicker-  I’m thinking that tomorrow’s lunch will be the perfect consistency.

I hope at least.

I steamed the broccoli then roasted it for a bit in the oven with some lemon olive oil and seasoning
