The Long Weekend Chef

The Long Weekend Chef

05.16.16

The Victoria Day long weekend has become the official weekend to celebrate spring-say May 24 and it’s safe to guess that most calendars are already filled with family barbeques, drinks on patios and cottaging! It’s the weekend to enjoy the outdoors and share some delicious food under firework lit skies!

Swapping stories is fun, but sharing food is even better! So here are some tips and inspiration for all of the long weekend chefs.

APPETIZERS
These are great! Everyone is always hungry as they wait for the food that fills the air around them with great smells. So instead of creating one big meal, try something new and just put out a lot of filling and yummy little appetizers!

MEALS
Who doesn’t love grilled chicken, steaks or burgers?! When making these, keep in mind you may be feeding a lot of people, so make something that you can make multiples of all at once – this will make it a whole lot easier for you.

DRINKS
Whether you are making a meal or just putting appetizers out, drinks are a must! Alcoholic or not, there are so many great recipes. One of our favourites is refreshing fruit infused water; use strawberries, mint leaves or lemons.

INGREDIENTS

1 medium onion, finely sliced

1/2 cup ketchup

1/3 cup cider vinegar

1/4 cup packed brown sugar

1/4 cup tomato paste

2 tablespoons sweet paprika

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

3 teaspoons kosher salt

1 1/4 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper

8-10 chicken thighs

6 hamburger buns

1 recipe Guacamole

1 cup shredded colby jack cheese

INSTRUCTIONS

1. In your crock pot, combine the onion, ketchup, apple cider vinegar, brown sugar, tomato paste, paprika, Worcestershire, salt and pepper. Whisk to combine.

2. Add the chicken thighs and make sure they are all evenly spread out and coated with the sauce ingredients.

3. Place the lid on the crock pot and turn on. Turn to high for Shredded BBQ Chicken to be done in 6-7 hours, and low for Shredded BBQ Chicken to be done in 8-9 hours.

4. Once the timer is up, remove the lid and using 2 forks, shred the chicken while still in the crock pot. Turn the crock pot to warm and serve the Shredded BBQ Chicken on top of burger buns with a heaping spoonful of guacamole and shredded colby jack cheese.
