Nourish ~ Easy Sunday Chicken

Welcome to Nourish: 31 Days of Family, Food, and Faith. This is Day 12. To see the rest of the series click here!

Last Sunday was all about thinking and preparing ahead of time to allow for a nourishing Sunday lunch and this Sunday is all about the easiest way I know of to do it...

Three ingredient Sunday dinner, at your service!

Your house will smell good, you're family will think you are a genius, and you just might have left overs for lunch tomorrow! This chicken-in-the-slow-cooker is the best guarantee of juicy chicken that I know. Trust me, you can't mess this one up!

Easy Sunday Chicken

1 whole chicken
2 cups of your favorite barbecue sauce
1/2 to 1 onion, sliced

If your chicken is frozen, place it in its wrapper in a large bowl and let it sit at room temperature for  4-5 hours until it has completely thawed. 

Remove the wrapping from the chicken and rinse it well inside and out. 

Place the chicken in the slow cooker. 

Slice one onion (we only use 1/2 onion) into thin rings and lay on top of the chicken. 

Finally, pour two cups of your favorite barbecue sauce over the onions. 

Put a lid on it and set it on low for 6-7 hours.

Come home from church or work and enjoy your meal! 

TIP: I don't like slicing onions first thing on a Sunday morning, so I slice them the night before and put them in a zip top bag and put it in the fridge the night before with the thawed chicken. Then in the morning it takes about 10 minutes to get the whole thing assembled.

We eat our chicken with mashed potatoes or rice and green beans or another green veggie.  

Juicy, tasty, super in salad or sandwiches tomorrow if you've any left over!

 “Nourish” is a very rich word because it has a kind of literal and metaphorical sense to it. We literally nourish ourselves with food. But we nourish our spirit, we nourish our culture, we nourish our community. You can feed yourself in many, many different ways.
