This is too simple to be called a recipe - but put a couple of chicken breasts (frozen works fine) in the crock pot and pour Kraft Light Original BBQ sauce over it. Let it cook for at least 4 hours. You just can't get a main course any easier than that!
I often put on a few sweet potatoes on time bake, and dinner is nearly ready when I get home.

Start with 3 boneless skinless chicken breast cut them in to squares aka chunks put a little oil in a pan and put it on high then add your chicken cook it for about 10 mins mixing it well till its no longer pink then add in 1 cup of bbq sauce and cook another 10 mins then turn the heat to med and add another cup of bbq sauce and cover the pot to cook about 8 more mins then let the coated chicken set on low for a 5 mins the serve and enjoy serve with blue cheese or ranch ... yummy
Also I allow myself to eat about 1 cup of chicken chunks and by the time I am almost done there is almost 1/2 of the chicken left and I'm full since I cook rice to go with the chicken and allow myself the suggested serving for the rice and start with my rice first .. The rice makes me feel full .
I love these easy roasted chickens. For $5-8 dollars I can make several different meals. (1) Eating the leg&thigh portion right away w/some sides. (2) Making bowls of chicken noodle soup (usually freezing half for later in the month) with the carcass and some of the breast meat. (3) The remaining
chicken meat I can toss w/some BBQ sauce and have "pulled BBQ chicken" buns. Or chicken soft tacos w/some taco seasoning. Or chicken to top a salad. You get the point... I used to roast my own chicken but for another dollar or two I can save an hour of cooking....
Pre cooking lean meats (watch for sales!) then freezing them in food saver type bags saves time, makes meal prep easy! Lean ground turkey, BBQ'd London Broil or boneless/skinless chicken breast thinly sliced. Freeze into meal-sized portions for your family (my bags serve 2)
5 pounds of 99% lean ground turkey... cook it into crumbles. Cool, then spread out on a sided cookie sheet. Cover with plastic wrap, freeze overnight. Portion out into 10 freezer bags (8 oz each). Seal into ziplock freezer or meal save- type bags. Thaw bag in hot water to use in many recipes
