First Slow Cooker Meal… Ever!

Yes, I have to admit I’m 23 and I have not yet invested in a slow cooker. My roommates luckily have one that I’m borrowing tonight. Ironically, when I came across this recipe they were having a contest on the website and giving away a really nice crockpot – I’m really hoping I win it so I can continue to make crockpot meals.

I found a recipe for BBQ Apricot Pulled Chicken and I couldn’t resist trying it out. I’m home sick for the day, and my boyfriend is taking a gamble and letting me cook something on my own. He is the cook between us, and I have a blog titled “failedcooking” for a reason. So let’s hope I’ve learned enough from him to not screw this up. I can’t let him down, especially if I ever want to become the stay-at-home housewife.

This recipe is pretty simple, as long as you know how to cut onions and measure out ingredients you will be just fine!

I also made up some of Bobby Flay’s Creamy Coleslaw to put on top of the pulled chicken. It should be a delicious combo. I have never had pulled chicken before, so I am hoping it will turn out!

…And he liked it! I was successful in creating my first slow cooker dish for my honey and it was pretty darn delicious. We usually eat spicy foods, but it was a nice change to have something sweeter.

I also made a salad with craisins, toasted walnuts, feta cheese, and raspberry vinaigrette dressing. That has to be my favorite salad ever!

Let’s just say I will be eating leftovers for a few days!

Thanks for following my blog!
