The slow cooker does all the work with this bbq chicken! The sauce starts with KC Masterpiece® and is tantalizingly spicy and sweet!
I’m a needy blogger. I live for praise and approval. Not so much approval of me, but for my food. And I’m not necessarily talking about approval from my readers although I sure do LOVE it. I’m mainly talking about approval from my own little family. Also known as my taste testers.
You should see how I watch for their reaction each time they bite into a newly prepared dish. I stare at them with such intensity. First, I watch their eyes, to see if they light up. Then I watch their mouths; do they smile? grimace? And what about how they chew? Quickly? Slowly? Reluctantly? Voraciously? These are all clues as to where my food stands. Does it need more work? To be totally revamped? Or is it good enough to share with you, my trusty readers? This is very scientific stuff here.
Then after I’ve read their reactions, I wait patiently for verbal feedback. Nothing chafes me more than when I stare expectantly at my stone faced husband as he continues to eat without uttering one single word! Hasn’t he figure it out by now that I’m a total compliment whore! There I said it. I love compliments! I crave them, what girl doesn’t? The key to my heart is through food compliments!
I made this BBQ chicken for dinner the other night. I used KC Masterpiece® Kansas City Classic as the base for the sauce, but then I tossed in some peaches and a bit of sugar and a spicy chipotle pepper for some zing. This bbq chicken came out tasting so good, I didn’t even have to inspect my family for their reactions. Each and every person devoured their share and licked the sweet sauce right off their fingers and lips! Now that’s what I’m talking about! Probably the best compliment in the world! The KC Masterpiece® sauce is tangy and smoky and lends itself perfectly to the sweet peaches and spicy chipotle peppers! Everybody had seconds and couldn’t wait to have leftovers!
Ok, so maybe I should stop fishing for compliments. Actions speak louder than words anyway. Licking the plate clean is all the praise I need!
KC Masterpiece® is celebrating 35 years of BBQ! The Kansas City Classic that I used in this recipe is their Limited Edition Anniversary Blend, which is a tribute to it’s original “Blue Ribbon Blend”. Boy is it fabulous. Exactly what you expect from a bbq sauce! It’s thick and smokey with a touch sweetness. If it hadn’t been raining all week, I’d have thrown open the grill! However, the slow cooker did me proud!
