summertime chicken...

I think I have posted this before, but will again.

It is summer, and since I am not working, we seem to be on the go, it is also HOT out.

I do not like running the oven in the summer, as it heats the house.

Last evening we returned from the pool, and the kids were STARVED. I grilled burgers, and we ate them up. However quick and easy meals that the kids will LOVE to eat, well sometimes I am not in the mood to figure it out.

Tonight I am making them their FAVORITE.

crockpot chicken

1 cup brown sugar
1 can Coca-Cola
2 medium onions, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 tbs. soy sauce
salt and pepper to taste
2-3 lbs. of chicken wings or ribs
In a large bowl, combine the brown sugar, Coca-Cola, onions, garlic, soy
sauce, salt and pepper. Stir until mixed. Place chicken wings or ribs in sauce mixture.
Throw in your crockpot on high for 6 hours. To thicken sauce, mix in a cornstarch mixture.

Throw in your chicken, any parts..I am using drumsticks because I am FRUGAL, and the kids love them. I will pair this with baked potatoes, and broccoli or asparagus.

I would rather be playing with the kids than cooking...

Wish I had seen this earlier! I will definitely be trying this one.

The girls love drumsticks too. I have been baking them in the oven. Cornflake crispy ones for M2 and BBQ for M1 and myself.
