    Made this tonight for dinner. Really delicious meal! Good job Derek on the sauce, the ACV gives it a nice tangy taste! I will be making this meal again! Keep up the good recipes!

    This is the easiest yummiest BBQ chicken. I put it on a slimwich bun and it was perfect! Ate it all week long and never got sick of it.

    Getting ready for new year meal prep and found your website! Just putting this together in the insta-pot my husband said “WOW!” ” something smell’s AWESOME is it ready to eat?” I laughed and said “not yet just putting it all together in the pot to cook”. Cant wait to try this today for dinner! We start our new training on the 6th and have been so sick of traditional training recipes. So I was searching for new fresh ideas and found your website and subscribed also!! keep those recipes coming 🙂
