Lazy Moms... oh, and Lazy Dads (because I know there's a few of you out there!). Have I got a LAAAAAZY recipe for you today!
This was something that I actually thunked up all by mythelf and I'm quite proud of it.
Although I should probably be a little bit embarrassed seeing that it's the easiest thing in the world to make, like, ever.
But humor me, will you? Pat me on the back and tell me I've come up with something brilliant because I feel like I have. Mainly because my husband said he liked this meal I made. Which is something that never. ever. happens.
I sort of stumbled across this idea by total accident. It all started with needing to get in the freezer. We have one of those refrigerators that has the freezer drawer on the bottom. *side note* I LOVE my refrigerator. It's probably my favorite thing in the kitchen. *end side note*
So it was late afternoon and I needed in my freezer. However because of a big ice cream container we got the night of my sons last baseball game of the season I had moved a container of shredded chicken to the bottom drawer and it was reeking havoc.
It made the drawer not open and it was driving me nutty. So I said, "Enough! Because you're being a pesky chicken I'm moving you to the refrigerator for dinner tonight!" Followed by lots of evil laughter.
Once the moment passed and I was walking away from the refrigerator I realized what I had done. I'd really punished myself. Because now I had to come up with a way to use shredded chicken for dinner. Ugh! What's a Lazy Mom to do?!?!?
Then brilliance took over. (That happens to me a lot in case you were wondering). (I'm also very humble about my brilliance, you just can't tell). (Will I ever stop writing in parenthesis?).
Soooooo, to make a long story about a lazy recipe short (it's too late for that, isn't it?) come dinner time I dumped the half frozen shredded chicken into a pan, poured BBQ sauce all over it and put a lid on it. It did it's thing while I pulled out some buns we had on hand and low and behold, we had Pulled Chicken Sandwiches! (As opposed to Pulled Pork Sandwiches in case you were wondering).
(There I go writing in parenthesis again).
(I think I need help).
Anyway, I was so excited that I accidently made something the whole family loved (well, minus our five year old) that I took a picture of it! Here it is in all it's mouth watering goodness....
And in case you missed it, here's how you make it....
Pulled Chicken Sandwiches
Shredded Chicken (I had some left over from a rotisserie chicken we didn't finish)
Put the chicken in a pan and cover with sauce. Cook on low heat. Stir occassionally so as not to burn. When heated through put on buns, bread, or whatever you want and eat.
And there you have it! Something so easy even a lazy mom can make it!
The next time you have leftover chicken from something (like a rotisserie chicken) just shred it up and use this lazy recipe for the leftovers.
