Alright, so tell me the truth. Is all of this back to school business creating havoc in your lives?

Me too, friends.

I mean, my kids are homeschooled, so that certainly makes the morning routine easier. I’m not sure how you all wake up so early, make lunches, check that people smell decent, and still get them out the door with matching shoes on time for the bus. This blows my mind.

Of course, I have my own set of challenges related to school season. Those challenges mostly involve working on the blog in between helping with math questions and reading reading reading together. My kids are now in 11th grade and 6th grade, so I’m really mostly hands off, but even so, it takes time.

I’ve been struggling to keep up with the house work, school work, and work work. I won’t lie.

First up, I’m sharing a recipe that brings me back to my high school years, when I was constantly hanging out with my boyfriend-turned-husband, who had his own apartment but literally not a single pot or pan. Luckily, the man lived close to a drive-thru joint that produced a pretty killer chicken sandwich. I was always ordering the Chicken, Bacon, and Swiss sandwich. It came topped with honey mustard and the flavors all complemented each other perfectly.

I set out to recreate that sandwich, but avoid the frying of the chicken. No one has the time or inclination to fry up a chicken breast on a busy week night.

I whipped up a simple honey mustard dressing that I poured over some chicken breasts in the Crock-Pot® slow cooker. Turned that to low for about 4 hours and then shredded it all up.

This chicken is pretty delicious on it’s own, but when you put it on a grilled bun, top it with a big slice of Swiss cheese, and a few pieces of crispy bacon, it’s really just divine. I served it alongside some chips, because I was being a lazy mama, but it would also work great with my cauliflower potato salad!

I hope you guys give this simple recipe a try. I think you’ll love it!
