Football Sunday should be filled with family, fun and food but that doesn’t mean you have to be stuck in the kitchen all day long prepping the meal. Some Sundays before heading to Church I’ll fill the Crock Pot with chicken breasts or thighs, add a sauce then top with some frozen veggies so that when I get home, I can sit back and relax with my son and hubby.
I am not a football fan so while they are watching the game I can read the Sunday paper or work on my blog but usually I am sitting back enjoying the aroma coming from the Crock Pot in the kitchen.
Last month before the game between the Eagles and the Giants #FlyEaglesFly (BTW The Eagles beat the Giants 27 to 7!) I used a package of McCormick Slow Cookers Sweet and Smokey Pulled Chicken seasoning and 4 chicken breasts to create these awesome slow cooked chicken sliders with homemade coleslaw.
1 package McCormick Slow Cookers Sweet and Smokey Pulled Chicken
1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 lbs of chicken breasts
According to package instructions, mix together McCormick seasoning, ketchup and brown sugar. Put chicken breasts into Crock Pot and cover with mixture and cook on high for 4 hours.
If you want to give it a little kick, add some Tabasco or Hot Sauce. After chicken has cooked, shred it using two forks then put some onto slider rolls and top with cheese or coleslaw.
I made my coleslaw using a 1/2 package of pre-made Classic Coleslaw, to which I stirred in a little mayonnaise, Apple Cider vinegar and a sprinkling of sugar then topped each slider which gave them a crispy crunch.
I am glad that McCormick finally came out with a Pulled Chicken seasoning pack as I had previously used the Pulled Pork seasoning however, I found it to be a bit overwhelming for chicken.
Have you tried any of the McCormick Slow Cooked Seasonings?
