Emergency Chicken

There seems to be a chicken theme going on around my blog lately... hmm... maybe I'll break out of my poultry rut eventually, but for now we're enjoying some very tasty chicken dishes around here and I'm happy to share another super easy one for your "I need dinner NOW" file. This took no time at all to whip together, and my son in particular really liked this one. It's pretty much just BBQ chicken, but the extra ingredients give the sauce a little kick and a nice consistency and texture - perfect to serve over rice should you so desire. :) A good, summery meal to pull out when time is short and bellies are hungry.

 Emergency Chicken from Aaron on AllRecipes

1 TBS butter
2/3 cup BBQ sauce (recommended: Sweet Baby Ray's)
1 TBS Worcestershire sauce
2/3 tsp garlic powder
1 1/2 lbs skinless, boneless chicken breast pieces - cut into 1/2 inch strips

  1. Melt butter in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Stir in BBQ, Worcestershire, garlic powder and combine with the melted butter. Add in the chicken, stir to coat.
  2. Cover and allow to simmer until chicken is cooked through and no longer pink in the middle - 5 - 10 minutes. Remove the lid and spoon the sauce over the chicken. Simmer a few minutes more, or until sauce reduces to desired thickness.
  3. Serving suggestion: serve chicken and sauce over rice, or with a side of mashed potatoes and corn on the cob or a green salad.
