Crockpot Barbecue Chicken + Skillet Creamed Corn

I think this is one of the best meals I have made recently (or ever). It’s one part simple (crockpot chicken) and one part semi-hard work yet amazing (skillet creamed corn).

If you’re looking for a yummy summer meal, this is it.

Crockpot Barbecue Chicken

Recipe (adapted from here):

easy peasy

Ingredients

  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken tenders
  • 1 medium-sized bottle Sweet Baby Ray’s barbecue sauce (trust me)
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. Grill Mates Smokehouse Maple seasoning blend
  • 1 tsp. Smoky Sweet Pepper seasoning blend
  • 1-2 tsp. garlic powder

set it and forget it!

In a medium bowl, combine barbecue sauce, vinegar, brown sugar and seasonings. Place the chicken tenders into the crockpot, and pour the sauce over them, making sure to coat the pieces well. (This amount actually makes more than enough, so we ended up putting about 1/4 of the sauce in the fridge to use later). Simmer on lowest setting for 4-6 hours (and prepare for your house to smell amazing!). Stir occasionally. How easy is that??

Skillet Creamed Corn

Fresh corn is a summertime vegetable, and there seems to be an never-ending supply of it at Publix (4 for $3!).This recipe is from Kevin & Amanda. They did such a great job visually explaining how to make this, I’m just going to send you in their direction. Click here for the recipe and instructions.

Cutting the corn and spooning the cobs to get the milk took a little bit of work, but it was definitely worth it.

ready for the skillet

Once the hard work of getting the corn off the cob is done, it’s pretty easy.

yummy


In 45 minutes, you have the best-tasting corn ever! I’m going to make this a lot while the fresh corn is available.

summertime dinner

Serve with Bridgford Parkerhouse Style Rolls (the same kind my Grandma serves!). Try not to eat the entire skillet of corn in one sitting. πŸ˜‰
