Country Bob's Review & Giveaway

I was given the opportunity to review Country Bob's BBQ sauce - they sent me TWO bottles of sauce. My first task was finding two recipes that I wanted to make since I am not much of a BBQ sauce lover. For the first dish, I created my own recipe:

Chicken breast - boneless, skinless - cut into cubes
Fresh green beans
Potatoes - cubed
1 bottle Country Bob's
1/2 cup of water

Put all of it in a Corningware dish and bake (I think it ended up cooking for about an hour on 350*).

I was not very impressed with this particular dish. I think the sauce was too sweet for it. Kid1 didn't like it at all. I had to bribe him to eat a reasonable amount of chicken. Kid2 LOVED the green beans(he always does) and ate a decent amount of chicken. The husband enjoyed all of it and went back for seconds. He said that it was the best meal I have cooked in a LONG time. (It could be that I am much more critical of my cooking than the rest of my family is.)
SO, about a week later, I decided to make Coke Chicken with the Country Bob's sauce!

Chicken (I used 3 chicken breasts and cut them in half down the center)
1/2 a bottle of Country Bob's BBQ sauce (I usually use 1/2 cup ketchup and 1/2 cup Heinz BBQ)
1 (12 oz) can of Coke

<-- Sauce and Coke. Mix it together in the skillet.
<-- Add the chicken.
<-- Cover with a lid and cook for 15 minutes on each side.
<-- Take it out of the pan and cut it up!
<-- I make it differently each time I make this - but on this occasion, I made rice and green beans to make a bowl.
I was SO MUCH happier with this dish than I was the first!! Everyone enjoyed it! The husband worked late, so he ate his chicken as a sandwich rather than on rice, but he still said it was good!!
Now, Country Bob's has GENEROUSLY provided me with TWO prizes, which means TWO winners!! :)
