Smoky & Spicy Chicken
1 hr & 40 min (programmable pressure cooker)
6 servings
$2.62/serving

Made in a pressure cooker or slow cooker with simple ingredients, this meal is full of classic BBQ flavour – smokiness & spice – without needing a smoker or grill. Plus, with minimal effort required, it’s perfect for busy weeknights. Serve it up with some bagged coleslaw mix (don’t forget the Coleslaw Dressing) and you’re good to go!


Ingredients
Preparation

PROGRAMMABLE PRESSURE COOKER 

  1. Add 1 12 cups water, applesauce, ketchup, vinegar, and seasoning to an 8-quart programmable pressure cooker. Stir to combine.
  2. Slice potatoes in half. Add potatoes and chicken to pot; stir to coat.
  3. Secure lid. Place steam release valve in SEALING position. Press MANUAL button, select HIGH, and set the time to 30 min. This will take some time to get up to temperature before the timer starts to count down.
  4. When the cook time has finished, naturally release pressure for 10 min.
  5. Using a long-handled spoon, push the steam release valve to VENTING position. Release pressure completely before opening lid.
  6. Press SAUTÉ and let sauce simmer. Simmer, stirring gently to prevent sticking, 15–20 min or until sauce has reduced to your liking.

SLOW COOKER 

  1. In a 6-quart slow cooker, combine 34 cup water, applesauce, ketchup, vinegar, and seasoning.
  2. Slice potatoes in half. Add potatoes and chicken to slow cooker; stir to coat.
  3. Cover and cook 5 hrs on low. Potatoes should be tender, and chicken cooked through.
  4. Partially cover slow cooker with lid. Cook 2 hrs on high. This will reduce the liquid and thicken the sauce.
Tips

If you have time, broil cooked chicken pieces in the oven on high, 5 min, for crispier skin and stickier sauce.
