Tasty Tuesday: Slow Cooking BBQ Chicken

A new baby, a sick family member, a recent (or upcoming) PCS, or ‘just because!’; there are many reasons a gift of dinner is so appropriate and heart-warming.  If you are looking for a great dinner to deliver ahead of time this is a great one to try.  (Bonus is that you will have two to give and one to keep!)

Slow Cooking BBQ Chicken:

3 large unpeeled sweet potatoes4 large green peppers
1 large red pepper
2 medium onions
3 tsps quick cooking tapioca
3 – 4 pounds chicken thighs or breasts
2 8-ounce cans of diced tomatoes
3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
3 tsps Worcestershire sauce
3 tsps yellow mustard powder
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 teaspoons salt

Chop, dice, cut … into your preferred bite size pieces.  Dump everything evenly into three one-gallon freezer bags (so you are making three meals with this one recipe). Shake it up, seal, label and put in the freezer.

When you are ready to deliver your meal (or two) to an old friend or new friends pull the bag(s) out of your freezer.  They can keep it in their freezer until a night that works for their family.  Cook on low in a slow cooker or Crock Pot for 8 hours or high for 4 hours.

Since I have three bags one is for my family, one for my new niece and her family and another for a family of my choosing.  Who do you know that could use a home-cooked meal?
