The theme for August Recipe ReDux is “Back To The Dinner Table,” meaning we were challenged to share our healthy recipes that encourage our families to eat dinner all together. One of my favorite things to do on Sundays is throw some ingredients in a slow cooker that transforms them into a delicious dish for our family to enjoy that evening, and also provides leftovers for the start of the week. This super easy slow cooker bbq chicken is just the ticket. Just a few simple ingredients to combine together, then set it and forget it for 4 -5 hours and viola, you have got your main dish all ready! We like to eat this chicken with some corn, simple sautéed kale and a salad. Then later in the week it is great in tacos, atop salad or in sandwiches. I hope you will give it a try and also check out the many great family favorites developed by the awesome Recipe ReDux group.
