Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take advantage of your slow cooker. In fact, I like using my crock pot even more in the summer.

I can spend the beautiful sunny hot days outside enjoying myself and when it’s time for dinner, I don’t have to do anything but serve and eat. And you can always fire up the grill for your protein and make a side or dessert in the slow cooker.

What I’m saying is…. don’t stop using your slow cooker (crock pot) just because it’s summertime.

Here’s a delicious summertime recipe to make in your slow cooker that’s a taste of summer with bbq chicken and lightened up by making lettuce wraps with it.

Another thing I love about this recipe, besides it being delicious, is that it uses basically 3 ingredients. You really taste the flavor of the chicken. It’s also a cheap meal, so if you have a large family a good value meal is important. Definitely a lot of bang for your buck.

Here’s to enjoying delicious summer meals without spending a lot of time in the kitchen!

Do you use your slow cooker in the summer and what’s your favorite thing to make?

    Where do you get coconut sugar? I’ve never seen it before. Of course, I’ve never looked for it before! LOL

    • Kim, you can buy coconut sugar at most grocery store, health food stores, and Amazon. I’ve ordered from Amazon before, but usually get it at Ingles or Walmart. I know Kroger carries coconut sugar, too. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
