BBQ Dr. Pepper Chicken

This dish was one of my husband's favorites growing up. It is one of my easy go to meals. It comes together in less than a half and hour and it is full of delicious flavor. I mean anything that has Dr. Pepper in it has to be delicious, right?

You will need: 

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 2 TBS of Butter
  • 1 bottle of BBQ sauce (I prefer Sweet Baby Ray's)
  • 1/4 can of Dr. Pepper

Melt the butter in a frying pan. Add the chicken to the butter and lightly brown the chicken on all sides. Pour in the entire bottle of BBQ sauce, coating the chicken evenly. Add the Dr. Pepper to the sauce and cover. Cook on medium heat for 10-12 minutes or until you chicken is cooked through.

One of our favorite things to serve with this chicken is crispy butter potatoes. They are one of my favorite things, sometimes late at night I just cook some up for a snack. Yum!

You will need: 

  • 2 Cans of sliced white potatoes, drained
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp parsley
  • 1/4 tsp dill
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • salt to taste

Melt the butter in a large pan until frothy. Add the potatoes. Stir in all of the spices, adding more or less to your personal tastes. Keep over medium heat, stirring occasionally until the potatoes start to fall apart around the edges, about five minutes. I like to cook them until they are a little crispy.

What is one of your favorite childhood meals?

This sounds like the way I make my BBQ chicken, but I've never added Dr Pepper! I have hard great things about it, though!

I'm not a big fan of BBQ sauce, but using Dr Pepper to cook chicken really intrigues me. We're big chicken eaters in this household. As a child, I remember eating "elbows and meat sauce."
