Recipe

Today just got away from me, you know those days? My plan was to wake up, get this chicken going, and have it up on the blog early this afternoon while enjoying it and watching some college football. Instead the chicken finished cooking around 8 at night and instead of a yummy football snack it became a post game meal. But it was totally worth the wait. Chicken breasts, beer, and barbecue sauce blend to make a delicious meal that can be served in a million ways. Tonight I decided to make little Hawaiian Barbecue sliders by tossing together some quick pineapple, mango salsa and honey wheat Hawaiian rolls. Tomorrow I will probably eat this again either as tacos or over some salad greens with skinny ranch. It’s sure to please any man in your life I mean beer and barbecue sauce and also made me a very happy camper.
