Easy 2 Ingredient Barbecue Chicken Recipe And Meal Plan
- Use kitchen shears to cut green onions and chives. It is much faster and safer.
- If your honey becomes crystallized, don’t throw it away. Warm it in the microwave or a pan of boiling water. Stir it until it becomes clear.
Frozen Fruit Cocktail Dessert*
2 Ingredient Barbecue Chicken Recipe
4 chicken quarters
1/2 cup bbq sauce
Pour bbq sauce over chicken and bake for 30 minutes at 400 degrees.
1/2 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
1/4 cup sugar
3 carrots, shredded
1 small head cabbage, shredded
Mix mayonnaise or salad dressing in a bowl with the sugar. Mix cabbage and carrots together. Add sauce to cabbage and carrots just before serving. The dressing can be made in advance and stored in a separate container in the refrigerator. Serves 8.
6 potatoes, peeled and sliced
2-3 Tbsp. bacon grease (You can use margarine but the flavor isn’t quite the same)
Melt grease in a hot frying pan. Add the potatoes and cook over medium high heat. When golden brown flip to the other side and cook until side is brown and potatoes are tender. Salt and pepper to taste.
Frozen Fruit Cocktail*
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 can (16 oz) fruit cocktail
Whisk or beat cream cheese until smooth. Drain fruit, mix into cream cheese and pour into a loaf pan (or anything freezer proof and about that size). Freeze. Let thaw slightly before you are ready to serve. Slice like you would bread. Sometimes a warm knife makes it easier.
This can be served with a dollop of whipped cream for dessert or on a lettuce leaf for a salad. You can also use other kinds of canned fruit but the fruit cocktail tastes really good frozen like this.
