Ok here we go. No pictures this time as there's literally nothing to take pictures of. BBQ Pulled Chicken.
A good sized crock pot with lid.
1 Sharp knife.
1 Large spoon.
Around 3lbs of boneless skinless chicken breasts.
1 LARGE bottle of BBQ sauce. Whatever brand gets you hard, I'm sticking with KC Masterpiece here.
Start by rinsing off and then padding dry the chicken. Then slice the breast in half length wise so you end up with thin wide fillets. Turn the crock pot to high and pour the sauce. Add 2 table spoons of brown sugar and a couple shakes of the liquid smoke, salt, pepper, and onion powder. Mix it up and throw the chicken in. If it's not mostly covered by the sauce, add some more in. Cover and let it cook for the next 5 hours.
When time is up just pull the chicken out and put it on a plate. Take a couple forks and pull it apart, which should be very easy. Once all the chicken has been taken care of, return it to the sauce and stir it up. Scoop some out onto a hamburger bun and serve with a side of chips or fries and a nice cold beer.
I'll post a picture of the end result later when this batch is done.
One of my favorite on-the-go breakfast snackies, although with my tastes they're good any time of the day.
1 lb ground sausage
5 hard boiled eggs
1 raw egg
Salt & freshly ground pepper
Some dry breadcrumbs and flour
1 tbsp water
Break the shells off the hardboiled eggs and dust them in a little flour. Mix the salt and pepper with the sausage meat and divide into five equal portions. Place on a floured surface. Wrap the sausage meat round the egg, making sure there are no gaps. Whisk the raw egg and water together and coat the meat-covered egg with this and then breadcrumbs (you may have to press the crumbs onto the meat). Deep fry in hot oil at 360F. Cook for about 5 to 6 minutes. They can also be pan fried in oil, just turn frequently to ensure the meat's fully cooked. Drain and serve hot, or they can be chilled in the fridge for a cold snack later.
At how high of a heat are you cooking this chicken? I wanna try it, but I don't wanna burn it to a crisp.
You can try to simulate crock pot cooking by using the au bain-marie technique of hanging a pan inside a larger pan with near-boiling water.
Nice to see someone take care of their cast iron properly. Too many people never wash their skillets, just wipe them down and grease them because they think they shouldn't wash it. You could never make pancakes on a skillet like that, plus you'd probably get food poisoning from all the rancid pig fat marinating in the pores of the cast iron.
