How Could I Resist?

There's this really great girl named Cindy, whose site I've been lurking at for ages. Cindy has LOTS of friends (yes, I'll admit it, I'm a wee bit jealous of the fact that everything she posts, even what she coins as her "most boring post...ever written" gets AT LEAST a dozen comments - usually more up around 20). One of Cindy's friends (I have no idea if they're real or cyber buddies, but really, what's the difference these days?) is Lysa TerKeurst. Yes, the author!!! The very funny, very real, totally cool woman who inspires millions of others to draw closer to God.

I think in order to make us all feel better about ourselves, Lysa confessed to feeding her family Chef Boyardee Pizza in a Box on a regular basis! God bless, Lysa! Due to her culinary challenges, Lysa is hosting a recipe swap. Yay! I sooooo need some new ideas around here.

So here's what's for dinner tonight (well, by the time I got this posted, the meal was served LAST night - it was deeeelicious): BBQ Chicken Breasts.

This is an easy crock pot recipe for those busy crazy days.

Mix together (in a bowl or right in the crock pot) -

large onion, chopped (I seldom have onions, so I use a generous portion of dried/ dehydrated minced onion)

1 cup ketchup

1 cup water

1/2 cup vinegar

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1 tsp worcestershire sauce (can I confess that I've never had this and simply add soya sauce to every recipe that calls for it)

1 tsp salt.

Add as many boneless, skinless chicken breasts as you'd like (around here it's 6 for just family or more for guests, and I never need to make more sauce - this is enough).

Cook on high for about 6 hours.

Serve with microwaved baked potatoes or minute rice (mmmm, minute rice is really good for soaking up the sauce).

BTW, I use this recipe for virtually ALL BBQ flavored foods - spareribs, hamburgers when they need to be made ahead and kept moist...



  1. This is a must try, it sounds quick, easy, and yummy, thanks for sharing!

  2. I'll be trying this one next week - thanks for sharing!

    BTW, loved the part in your post about Cindy's blog and her many friends... I too have blog-comment-envy, too! LOL

  3. You're crazy, girl. But sweet. :)

    I love when you leave comments. Even though I do get several, it still means A LOT to see new faces and comments ALWAYS bless me. :)Have you left some for Scott, too? He REALLY loves comments. :)

    I remember I was thrilled when I got three comments, then the next step was six... I thought that was HUGE! :) I think my comments just grew because I kept stalking other people until they would comment back on mine. :) Now I have several REAL friends! Truly, blogging has been a gift from God to me. I should look- I bet I'm right around my year anniversary!

    Your recipe sounds YUMMY. I'll have to try it!! I've made one that is a little similar and has a can of Coke in it!

    Thanks for your encouragement, sweet girl.

  4. I Love the crockpot and your recipes for crockpot chicken looks great! Thank you! AND... you are very funny about your Cindy- comment-envy. Does it make you feel better to know I lurk at your blog reading but rarely commenting? You have more friends than you know!

  5. tyler that recipe sounds awesome...I am going to definately be trying that one this week...thanks...
    and I also have comment envy...LOL..isn't it crazy??? I will definately be checking out Cindy's blog too....

  6. Ooh, this sounds good. I'm always looking for new crock-pot recipes.

  7. Oh - sounds so yummy, AND easy! Thanks - love it.

    Yeah, Cindy is a fun read.

  8. et, thanks for stopping by my blog. Your recipe looks delicious. And I must confess that if its my turn to make dinner for our boys, we might just have carrots, string cheese, and whatever else I can dig out of the fridge. Fortunately, our kids don't like "mixed" foods for the most part. The cheese cannot touch anything else, etc. Obviously, there are a few exceptions, but I've the only kid I know that doesn't like pizza.

  9. Crock pot meals are the best. Thank you, thank you!


I am so glad you stopped by! My hope is that we can engage in a conversation together. I love to reply to your comments, but I need your help to make that happen.

If you have a blogger profile, would you consider editing your profile to "show my email address?" Then, when I receive your comment in my email inbox, I can reply directly to you.

Alternately, you can check the box "email follow up comments to..." so that I can reply to you right here. (You will also receive other readers' comments using this method.)
