crockpot balsamic chicken

The other night I needed a quick, healthy dinner. I was going to be out all afternoon and wanted to come home to dinner being done. So I thought I would do my crockpot balsamic chicken. It’s tangy shredded chicken with a hint of sweetness and an asian flare. Serve it up with a little cooked broccoli and rice and there you have a complete meal. Hope you enjoy this recipe.

crockpot carolina bbq pulled pork

I couldn’t write a post on pulled pork today with out saying “HAPPY 4th of JULY!” I hope you find yourself having some fun with friends and family with some yummy food too. We are just getting ready to head out to see some fireworks downtown Raleigh. But for now, I will leave you with this yummy recipe I cooked up today.

Since moving to the South, my husband and I have come to love pulled pork. Not just any pulled pork though, it has to be Carolina pulled pork, and more specifically, North Carolina pulled pork. You see, here in the South each region has its own version of this tasty dish and our favorite is the tangy vinegar-based version with a hint of spice and sweetness.

IMG_9002 IMG_8984 This is a very easy recipe as you just throw everything in the crockpot and let it cook all day while you get stuff done and have some fun. This is probably our absolute favorite crockpot meal and it’s one we have made often here in NC. It’s perfect served up on a slightly toasted hamburger bun or served over cooked rice or quinoa. And if you have any leftovers, it freezes beautifully for an even quicker dinner another night. ┬áSo next time you get the hankerin’ for some pulled pork, give this recipe a try. It’s sure to please.
