Campus and a recipe

I have to say, I am really enjoying this new school. The University is so big and new, and quite charming if I may say so myself. Especially when the sun is out and all the student are walking around on campus.
I like being back at school, though I’m not quite there on the transition from high school to University. My head tends to wander off very quickly if I try to study, and I haven’t gotten the hang of study techniques that will be useful for me; but it’s not even September yet. I’ll get the hang of it.
Something I have got the hang of however, is food. Yes, I’m bragging; but that’s only because it’s so good. The other night I made BBQ pulled chicken with a homemade BBQ sauce. I thought I’d share the recipe in case anyone else wants an easy and delicious meal one day. I even took step by step pictures to help!
1/4 – 1/2 Onion
3-4 Garlic cloves
1/2 cup ketchup
3-4 tbsp brown sugar
1-2 tsp liquid smoke
2-3 dashes of hot sauce
1-2 tbsp worchestershire sauce
1-2 tbsp honey
3-4 chicken breasts/filets
I tend to use this as a rough draft recipe because I don’t follow the measurements very well. I add a little of this and a little of that until it tastes good. What I do though, for this wanting to try this recipe: Chop up onion and garlic to a nice size, then put that in a frying pan with a “bigger” dab of margarine. Sauté this at a medium heat and then add the other ingredients.. I don’t follow any order, I just dump it all in there and stir. Bring it to a low bubble. Making this BBQ sauce takes no time, so heat up the oven a little while before. I put it at about 125-150*C because in my mind the longer it takes, the more juicy it will be. When the sauce is made up, pour it over 3-4 chicken breasts in a baking pan and put it in the oven. Depending on your oven, any time after an hour and a half I’d roughly assume, you can take two forks and pull the chicken apart; like so:
Once it’s done, put it between two hamburger buns with some sliced red onion and pickles, and you’ve got yourself one damned good meal.
