The ingredients must have come to me in my sleep. The more I use my slow cooker, the more I love it.

This salmon is so delicious on it's own. I decided to cedar plank the salmon on the grill, and drizzle it with some cayenne lime butter.

After having a bite of the Chipotle Chicken Tacos my coworker brought for lunch a couple of weeks ago, this was my dinner two days later.

If you know me you know I am a sucker for avocado and chipotle. I used a rotisserie chicken so it's super easy to make.

Egg, Prosciutto & Tomato Muffins
Sriracha Meatballs

I'm a big fan of savory muffins. These are pretty much mini omelettes in a cup. They are perfect for weekend brunch, and even better to make ahead for the week and then pop them in the microwave.

Apricot Bourbon Barbecue Chicken

When I saw Ree post this Peach Whiskey Barbecue Chicken it inspired me to break out my jar of Spicy Apricot Bourbon Barbecue Sauce that I had purchased a couple of weeks ago. I know, I've been using a lot of pre-made sauces and marinades lately. They're a great dinner shortcut after a long day of work and trip to the gym, so cut me a break.

Overall the sauce and the recipe were really good, but it definitely was not spicy at all. If you like spice like I do, throw in some chopped chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. I served it with spinach mashed potatoes and a variation of this corn and tomato scramble, it ended up being an unexpected weeknight feast. Keep reading for my version of this recipe.

1 package bone in chicken thighs (5 thighs total)
1-1/2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoons olive oil
1 large yellow onion, chopped
1- 1/2 cups bourbon
1 jar or 12 oz Spicy Apricot Bourbon Barbecue Sauce
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon chopped chipotle pepper in adobo (optional)
4 cloves garlic, minced

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

Heat butter and olive oil over medium high heat in a heavy, oven proof pot that has a lid (I used my Le Crueset dutch oven). Once melted add chicken and brown on both sides, approximately 3-5 minutes on each side. Remove chicken from pot and set aside. Empty out some of the grease and then saute onions for about 5 minutes. Pour in bourbon, stirring onions around, and cook for about 3 minutes. Add Apricot Bourbon Barbecue sauce, Worcestshire, chipotle peppers, and garlic. Stir to combine, add chicken to the pot, cover with lid, and put the pot in the oven. Cook for 1 1/2 hours, remove from oven and serve.

Thanks! It was pretty darn good! If you like spice I would definitely add the chipotle peppers, otherwise it's really good without them. Enjoy!
