Barbecue Peach Pulled Chicken

Barbecue is one of my favorite vices/flavors and also one of my favorite food smells. There is nothing quite like grilling out in the summer with a beer in your hand and the smell of barbecue in the air. In this neck of the woods, most barbecue you find in restaurants is pork, so I take full advantage of the summers to make my own pulled chicken sandwiches. The benefit of this recipie is that you can make it year long in the crockpot whenever that wave of summer weather nostalgia hits you.

I also love “Philly Style” barbecue sandwiches which is the addition of coleslaw on top of the meat in the sandwich. The crunch of the cabbage and bite of the vinegar balances out the heavy barbecue in a very pleasing way. If you haven’t seen this combination before and your first reaction was WTH please just give this a try, it could change your life! Or at least… your barbecue preferences.

With that, this is also a quick 2 for 1 recipe post, as I have included a recipe for Cranberry Apple Coleslaw as well!

Barbecue Peach Pulled Chicken

You will need:

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 2-3 cups of your favorite barbecue sauce
  • 2 peaches, diced

Instructions:

1. Place the chicken breasts in a crockpot with the diced peaches and cover with barbecue sauce. Cook on low for 2-3 hours or high for 1-2. Make sure to cut open chicken breast to ensure chicken is fully cooked.

2. Once chicken is cooked through, use two forks and pull breasts apart in the crockpot, then mix evenly with sauce and peach mixture. Let cook on low for another 20-30 minutes. If you are making your own coleslaw, this is a good time to whip it together.

3. Serve on a bun topped with Cranberry Apple Coleslaw (recipe below) and enjoy!

Cranberry Apple Coleslaw

You will need:

  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 cup mayonaise
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 4 cups coleslaw mix (or shredded cabbage)
  • 1-2 apples, grated*
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup dried cranberries*

*I know some people are not a fan of sweeter coleslaw. If you don’t like it too sweet, cut back to just 1 apple and 1/4 cup dried cranberries.

Instructions:

1. In a medium bowl, mix the cider vinegar, mayo, honey, and salt.

2. Add the coleslaw mix and grated apples and combine. Finally, add dried cranberries, if desired.

  • You would think that I would have done makeup on all of my family at this point, but sadly that is not the case, however, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to do my brother's makeup after the haunt had opened Saturday night! He managed to pull together an incredible maroon clown outfit, and I am really pleased how the makeup looks! I personally like the messier clowns, and it worked well to have brighter pink-ish hues toned down by smudges of black and watering down the paint overall.

  • My first ever zombie for Halloween was a shotgun bride, and although it was a real bridal gown with real shotgun damage, I just used 3 or 4 latex bullet wounds. It was fun, and a great introduction to using prosthetics, but it wasn't really accurate to what I would have had for damage with an actual shotgun wound. So years later, I made up for it by re-creating a more realistic wound of where the shoulder and partial face would have been torn up by the blast. Personally, this is my favorite zombie creation to date! #zombie #zombiemakeup #zombiebride #shotgunbride #zombiecrawl #woundmakeup
  • Ready for my closeup!!! Getting ready for Sioux Falls Zombie Crawl tomorrow!!! #zombie #zombiemakeup #zombiecrawl
  • OK you guys, this is where I love the internet. I created this zombie 2 years ago and had (kind of) forgotten about it until just this week when someone re-created it... and she is on the other side of the globe! Seriously, it made my my entire day/week/month, and reminds me why I love doing this. <3 <3 <3

  • Its GO TIME PEOPLE! T-Minus 7 days to HALLOWEEEEEEEEEEN. Im running on fumes and caffeine, but it is 100% worth it. I love working at the haunted house, and am beyond thrilled about this coming weekend. I still have 2 costumes to finish and 2 zombies to do, plus some donut deliveries (a great fundraiser... friends scared of clowns? Send them donuts a-la-clowns). One more look at this first clown because I was obsessed with this wig from Rockstar wigs... I WILL find a way to use it again in the near future. #hauntlife #hauntedhouse #clowns #halloween2018
  • I had a request to recreate a clown mask as a makeup so it wouldn’t be as hot to wear in the house (swipe to see said mask), and it was quite the learning experience. I made this about a month ago when I was still trying to use the cream paints that the haunt had, though I’ve since decided to buy more of my own water paint to use on my actors. The base here was the basic white clown grease paint, and while I loved the coverage, it felt awful to wear, and it was incredibly difficult to add fine details with cream paint or shadows. So my first and last grease paint clown! 🤡 I still think it’s important to share our failures as well as the successes... this is still far better than what I might have created even just a year ago! #clowns #hauntedhouse #halloween
  • Hey Guys! I've been quiet on Insta so far this October, but its because IM SO BUSY and i'm pretty much in Halloween Heaven. Between finishing my first commissioned costume (its super simple, but I completed foam armor for the first time!!!) and doing makeup at the haunted house, i've hardly had time for sleep... and I wouldn't have it any other way. 
This is one of my first clown practice runs. I tried doing 30 minutes or less, and initially I wasn't planning on posting. Having a few days of the crazed makeup chaos that is getting ready for house open under my belt, I have a new appreciation for what details you can and simply cannot complete in such a short time period, and kind of like the grunge this clown pulled off. Not everything you will create is perfect, but thats how we all learn! #clowns #hauntedhouse #halloweenmakeup #halloween2018
  • I think this barrel look could make a great clown character.... am I going over to the dark side and starting to like clowns?!?! Only time will tell, and there are still 20 days until Halloween! #nightmarebeforechristmas #halloweentown #lockshockandbarrel
