Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken on Buns – Freezer to Slow Cooker
As the summer has moved closer to its end I have continued cleaning up after the flood and working on being the best me I can be. As work is a little busier than it had been during June and July I am finding myself relying on make ahead meals and freezer to slow cooker meals yet again. This Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken on Buns – Freezer to Slow Cooker recipe came from Daughter Number One who has been pre-planning and prepping, too.
It always surprises me just how much time and hassle pre-planning and prepping saves me. It may take a chunk of time one day a week (Sunday for me), but it makes weeknights so much better for everyone in my house.
Last night was the first time I had made this recipe and knew from the faces around the table that it will make it into the rotation. Daughter Number Four actually had seconds.
Serving recommendations are to serve the chicken on a bun with coleslaw on the side. For my own, to make it lower carb, I skipped the bun and served my chicken over my slaw. It was delicious.
If you have not tried making dishes ahead, especially freezer to slow cooker meals, I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for an easy weeknight make ahead meal! You will not be disappointed.
