I was in a crunch tonight and had no idea what to make for dinner and then there I saw it, The Crockin Girls cookbook. I needed something quick and with a few ingredients because I have been on a tight budget and swore I’d only use up what I had on hand for the next week. So…let’s get to what I found, Russell’s Barbecue Stuffed Chicken (shared by Russell Parr)!
I forgot to take a photo so I took a photo of the cookbook to give you an idea of what it looks like. I’m a visual person and pictures really help to determine what meals I’ll make.
Ingredients consisted of 4 chicken breasts, bacon (cooked & chopped), 1/2 bell pepper (I diced it), 1/2 bunch of cilantro (I didn’t have this so I omitted it), 1.5 cups cheddar cheese, 1/3 cup pickled jalapeño’s diced (I again omitted this as I didn’t have any) and 3 cups of BBQ sauce (I didn’t measure mine, just squirted a bunch as I saw fit and I mixed Sweet Baby Ray’s original and Open Pit original).
Butterfly the chicken breast and set aside. Mix all the ingredients (you have lol) in a bowl and divide it in two. Place half the mixture inside your butterflied chicken breast and fold closed. Once all are filled, place chicken in your crock pot and cover with BBQ sauce. Top chicken with remaining mixture. Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours (mine only took 4).
Even though I omitted a couple ingredients, we all really enjoyed this! I’ll definitely be making this one again! 2 YUMS up!
