We’re painting and laying hardwood floors in our new house (I can’t wait to show some before and after pictures!), so we have family over all the time right now. I’m not very handy, so I’m pretty useless when it comes to helping with the floors. So my job is to keep people happy (read: fed). I’m pulling out all my easy, ready-whenever recipes to keep some variety going.

One of my favorite quick-and-easy meals when we’re having friends or family over is slow cooker bbq pulled chicken. It’s so easy, but adding just a few ingredients to bottled bbq sauce takes this chicken to over-the-top-amazing!






The bbq sauce can also be used as an amazing marinade for grilled chicken and pork chops, too!

A teacher-friend gave me this recipe, and everyone I have ever made it for absolutely raves about it. At your next family get-together, whip up this pulled chicken and you won’t have to worry about leftovers!








Our favorite ways to eat it are either on a bun or over mashed potatoes (try it!).
