I think most of you know I have an enormous family and many of my 39 nieces and nephews are now adults, so I enjoy getting the younger point of view from them on all things related to blogging.  Many of my nieces are young moms who help me discover family friendly food blogs, and this Slow Cooker Kansas City Sue's Chicken is from Mel's Kitchen Cafe, a site I discovered when my beautiful niece Kara recommended it.

The recipe for this slightly sweet tender chicken with barbecue flavors came from a Mel's Kitchen Cafe reader, and I think this sounds like a winner!  Mel says she serves the sauce on the side, but you could also simmer it to reduce if you don't mind waiting a little longer to dig into this delicious chicken.

Ingredients for this recipe: 
  • Boneless and skinless chicken breasts
  • butter or olive oil
  • ketchup
  • apple cider vinegar
  • diced onion
  • soy sauce
  • dry mustard
  • low-sodium beef broth

  1. I clicked through to the original recipe in hopes of finding the origin of this unusual name, but no luck! Still, the recipe looks great and I can't wait to try it. (And thanks for linking to one of my own slow cooker chicken recipes.)

  2. Lydia, I was wondering that as well, and I have to think it's because the cooking sauce ingredients are similar to what is in Kansas City barbecue sauce. But no idea who Sue is!
