Gourmet dinners are such the treat, but I refuse to be in the kitchen for too long when the sun is out! Here is a fancy schmanzy dinner to serve your family or if you are having company {or both!}...and nobody will ever know you weren't slaving all day in a HOT kitchen!

Lemonade with fresh lime and mint
Chips and Salsa if you want
Corn on the Cob
Green Salad...because you need your GREENS!
BBQ Mexican Chicken

What is your favorite "go to" dinner when it is HOT? Going out does NOT count! :)

adapted from a fancy schmanzy restaurant
{on a date night with MR. PEARSON}

Soak 6 chicken breasts in salt water overnight.

Rinse until water runs clear.

Place chicken in crockpot with 1 bottle Trader Joe’s Bold and Smoky Kansas City Style BBQ Sauce

1 cup Good Seasons Italian Dressing {prepared} or your favorite Italian Dressing
Crockpot chicken on low for 6-8 hrs.

Put on serving platter.

Put the following on top of each chicken breast:


Daisy Sour Cream

Shredded Pepper Jack Cheese

Sliced Green Onions

Sliced Olives

Sliced Avocado

  1. Well, that certainly looks like one of my new favorite meals! I love beautiful food, and that qualifies. :-)

    BBQ chicken, chips and home made salsa, guacamole, black beans and rice. That doesn't sound like a meal, does it. But it is. :-) I make up a lot of rice at once and keep it in a large ziploc bag in the refrig and use from it as needed.

  2. This crockpot meal looks delish! I think my hubby would really like it too!!

  3. how do you do the salt water that the chicken soaks in? how much water and how much salt?

  4. Love it Lisa! Yes...salt water helps make the chicken juicy! You are my "comfiest" friend ;) lol. Love to you, Janelle
