This weather is UNREAL! It’s almost eerie how mild the winter has been and how warm it is in only mid March. Now I’ve lived in the Midwest long enough – i.e. my entire life – to know that one day might be gorgeous and the very next you could be knee deep in snow scraping sheets of ice off the windshield of your car. BUT with a ten day forecast looking more like May than March, I am going to try to embrace it rather than wonder if all this sunshine is the result of global warming.
Before you pack up your winter clothes and put away the crock pot, I highly recommend you try this BBQ Pulled Chicken recipe that I made on Sunday. The chicken slow cooks in the oven and the crock pot for quite some time, but the effort is minimal and the reward is huge. With a mix of smoky and spicy flavors, the shredded meat was so good, it almost didn’t need the barbeque sauce. But it does, because it makes the sandwiches that much more tasty. Next time I have a bunch of friends over, I’m making this chicken.
