Chicken that will change your life...

I LOVE to cook. I really do. It's a stress reliever for me. There is just something about making a mess in the kitchen that makes me really happy.

I rarely blog recipes - mostly because I feel like my cooking is pretty ordinary. However, I came upon this chicken recipe on Pinterest and I had to share. It has changed our lives... maybe it can change yours too :) It's good, super easy and makes meals for days!

Step #1 - Mix 1 bottle of BBQ sauce, 1TBS of garlic powder & 1 TBS of crushed red pepper

Step #2 - Put frozen (yes frozen) chicken in the crockpot. Three or Four pieces

Step #3 - Pour BBQ mixture over chicken and turn on low for 5 hours

Step #4 - It's cooked :) - You can stop here and serve with sides OR .....

Step #5 - Shred the chicken with a knife and fork

Step #6 - Makes 8 BBQ Chicken Sandwiches :)

**This is the part that changed our lives. Ben was tired of taking turkey sandwiches to work. I made these bags and put them in the fridge. Every morning for a week, we grab a bag of chicken and a bun and just heat it up at work. One of the main reasons we eat out is because we don't make time to make lunch. Now, I make this on a Sunday night and we have lunch for the entire week!!! *It freezes well also :)

I'll never forget eating it the first time when you cooked one after your mom sent it to you! lol Every time I think/hear about artichoke, I think about you!! Love ya!
