Super Easy Summer Meal Secrets

Looking for easy cooking for kids or simple meals for dinner? These Alabama foods are short cuts to delicious meals and have been family favorites for generations. Whether you are looking for food gifts for women or busy Mom meal ideas, these Alabama food staples will change your life.

Alabama is said to have invented white BBQ sauce and it is chicken’s secret ingredient. Of course you can use it on the grill, but the easiest way to enjoy is to put frozen chicken breasts in your slow cooker before you leave for the day. Pour sauce over the chicken and heat on low. (Follow manufacturer’s cooking instructions.) You dinner is ready when you are. While there are many white BBQ sauces, we love Bully’s for its sweetness of brown sugar, distinctive vinegar base and light peppery finish.  The chicken will be so tender that you only need a fork. Open a pack of buns for a scrumptious sandwich. If you like a creamy sandwich, leave a little sauce in the bottle to use as a condiment. Try some Wickles Wickedly Delicious Pickles and don’t forget the Golden Flake chips.


Not boring port chops again? Whether you grill, bake or fry, top your chops with Holmsted Fines Peach Chutney. The sweetness lends a great flavorful boost that even the pickiest kid will enjoy.


Summer isn’t complete without fresh seafood. Boiling water, Ron & Jerry’s White Trash and seafood is all you need to please a crowd. The perfectly combined spices, onion, garlic and lemon are an Alabama secret of an amazing and easy seafood dinner.  Use the 5 oz size for 2-3 lbs or 16 oz size for 5-10 lbs. Your shrimp, crab and crawfish have never tasted better.
