A great dish when you're in a pinch

Being a piano teacher, most of my teaching starts mid-afternoon and doesn't end till 7pm. This makes dinner hard some nights, especially because John and I also have evening activities on Monday, Tuesday, and some Wednesday's.
As a result, I have grown reliant on my wonderful crockpot to help me out when I can't really cook dinner. I put everything in it on my lunch break, and bam!, it's ready in the evening whenever we finally get to eat!

Last night we had "crockpot bbq pulled chicken sandwiches" for dinner. This recipe is wonderful because you can double it and feed a crowd easily, and you hardly have to do anything at all. :) I found this recipe online on

Crockpot BBQ chicken:

-2 Chicken Breasts
-1 1/2 C. Ketchup (I just buy a big store brand bottle to have on hand)
-3 TBS brown sugar
-1 TBS Worcester sauce
-1 TBS Soy Sauce (Note: I use 2 TBS Dale's steak sauce in place of Wor. and Soy sauces, either way is fine!)
-1 TBS Apple cider vinegar
-1 TSP red pepper flakes
-1/2 TSP garlic powder

Put all ingredients in a crockpot, stir to cover the top of the chicken. Put crockpot on high setting for 3-4 hours. Shred chicken, mix together, and serve on rolls!

That's it, and most of the ingredients can be found in your fridge or pantry already! Enjoy!
