I was so excited from last night’s success that I have even planned out the next 3 days and shopped for it today! Today’s dinner was a the main meat and some biscuits. I took pictures of the after but now my phone has died and it’s too late to go charge it, so the pictures will be uploaded tomorrow. Also, today I decided to include the link and the recipe, to make it easier.
Dinner was crock pot barbecue chicken, mashed potatoes, corn and 7-up biscuits. I was a bit lazy this morning and did not get the chicken out in time to defrost, then I was going to throw it in frozen, but even tho the research I’ve done said that was ok, I just can’t bring myself to do it! So, instead I cooked them at 350 degrees for 20 minutes and it turned out yummy!
4-6 pieces boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 bottle BBQ sauce (sweet baby ray’s all the way!)
1/4 c vinegar
1 tsp. red pepper flakes (gives it just the right kick you don’t expect in barbecue recipes)
1/4 c brown sugar
1/2 – 1 tsp. garlic powder
Mix the barbecue sauce with everything but the chicken, put the chicken in the pan (or slow cooker) and pour the mix over the top.
For the mashed potatoes, I cheated and used instant, but added sour cream and cheese at the end to make it taste better.
The corn is my grandma’s secret recipe that is an Anderson family favorite. I’m not sure yet if I’m ready to share it, stay tuned….
The biscuits were the best thing on the plate.
2 cups Bisquick
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup 7-up
1/4 cup melted butter
Preheat oven to 450.
Cut sour cream into biscuit mix, add 7-Up. Makes a very soft dough.
Sprinkle additional biscuit mix on board or table and pat dough out. Melt 1/4 cup butter in a 9 inch square pan. Place cut biscuits in pan and bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
I had a really hard time with the dough sticking to everything, so I tried my best and ended up plopping the dough into the pan and then trying to spread it in there. I was really worried about the outcome. I used more flour than I probably should have just trying to keep it from sticking to my hands and the counter. But, in the end, they weren’t the prettiest thing out there, but my 12 year old who does NOT eat crescent rolls or any sides of bread ate 3! On the other hand, my 9 year old who will eat a slice of bread just cuz he’s hungry did not like them. My husband and other son both thought they were good. To quote my 12 year old, “any time you make biscuits can you please make these? They just melt in my mouth!”
As a side note, I was pleased to get a text today that a friend of mine was making a recipe tonight for dinner that she’d seen from my pin! I’m waiting to find out how it went since that will be Wednesday night’s dinner here!
