Holy Yum!

I was never really a crock-pot kinda girl, but J loves him food out the crock-pot. My picky eater has claimed that anything out of the crock-pot is delicious (this can make for some fun for me in the future - ha!)

Any way, I am a sucker for a baked potato. I'm nearly sure that my freshman year in college I lived off of them - and the mean croissant sammie from the Hullabaloo!

So this recipe from my sweet friend over at Chocolate Broccoli was perfect for us.

BBQ Chicken Baked Potatoes

6 frozen skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
one medium red onion, sliced into rings
1 (16 ounce) bottle barbeque sauce (I used Sweet Baby Ray's Honey)
1 cup Zesty Italian salad dressing
1/2 cup Cider Vinegar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons Liquid Smoke
2 tablespoons garlic powder
6 medium baking potatoes

Place frozen chicken in a slow cooker. Layer onion rings over top of the chicken breasts and sprinkle with the garlic powder. In a bowl, mix the barbeque sauce, Italian salad dressing, brown sugar, liquid smoke, cider vinegar and Worcestershire sauce. Pour over the chicken.

Cover, and cook 3 to 4 hours on High or 6 to 8 hours on Low. Remove chicken from slow cooker and shred. Place shredded chicken back into slow cooker with the sauce.

During last hour for cooking the chicken, wrap potatoes in foil and bake at 400 degrees for 45-60 minutes. Split potatoes and add your choice of various toppings..

J used butter, chives, and mexican cheese. I used butter, lite sour cream, roasted garlic, and chives.

Overall - SO delish. The chicken could be used in just about anything - our house smelled amazing and J gave it "2 thumbs up" and said he would "give it 3 if he had another one".
