Crockpot Cheesesteak Pulled Chicken

Today’s tried and true post comes from the blog How Sweet It Is.  I have been following this blog for 3 years now and Jessica is extremely talented in recipe development.  You could say that I seriously DROOL over everything she produces in her kitchen.  If only I could be her permanent taste tester.  Who wouldn’t want that job with Jessica……

Tried & True

A couple of weekends ago I had some friends over for dinner and  decided to make dinner easy, so I went to this crockpot recipe.   Crockpot recipes are always a good find because it just makes life simpler.  My guests were very impressed with this pulled chicken recipe, so much so that they have already asked me for the recipe several times.

I highly suggest you check out How Sweet It Is because you won’t be disappointed with any of her recipes.  I was also able to ask Jessica a couple of fun questions.  Check them out below.

 

What is your favorite meal?
My mom’s pot roast with mashed potatoes, egg noodles and gravy. Total comfort food.

What is your favorite beverage?  

Water! I’m boring.

Tell me a random fact about yourself
I started college as a history major and have a crazy infatuation with American history, especially American presidents.

What do you like most about having a blog?
The interaction with my invisible internet friends.

Savory or sweet? 
Uhh… savory and sweet. Like chocolate covered bacon.

If you could cook for a celebrity, who would that be?
James Taylor! Then I hope he’d sing me to sleep.

ENJOY ~ Meagan

      I haven’t tried anything besides the beer. You could probably try chicken stock instead.
