I know, I know: Potatoes and carrots are weird things to cook with barbecue sauce -- so uncommon, in fact, I could not find one single image of it! No worries :) It's very easy to make, and hard to mess up. You can even add chicken if you want, to make it a one-pot wonder ;) Either way, this is one hot and tasty dish!

Ingredients

4 c
thin sliced potatoes
1 c
bias-sliced carrots
1/2 c
chopped celery or 1/2 tsp. celery
1/2 c
chopped onion or 2t. dehydrated onion flakes
1/2 c
shredded sharp cheddar, optional
3 Tbsp
flour**
1 tsp
salt
1/4 tsp
pepper

SAUCE

1/3 c
ketchup
1/4 c
chili sauce
1 tsp
worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp
garlic granules or garlic powder
1/8-1/4 tsp
cayenne, to taste or bottled hot sauce
1-2 c
milk or chicken stock
bottled barbecue sauce, optional garnish

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2
Scrub and slice potatoes -- you can peel or not, as you wish.
Scrub and slice carrots, or use frozen carrots that have been thawed.
Clean and chop celery and onion.
3
Place all the prepared vegetables in a large mixing bowl.
4
Combine flour, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Add flour mixture to vegetables, and toss to coat evenly.
If you're using cheese, toss it in now.
5
Prepare a 3 qt. baking dish with food release spray, coating thoroughly.
Turn the coated vegetable mixture into the prepared casserole dish. Set aside.
6
In a small bowl combine the sauce ingredients. Pour the sauce over the vegetables in the casserole dish.
Cover and bake about 1 1/4 hour.
Remove cover, garnish, if desired, with bottled barbecue sauce, and bake,uncovered, 15 minutes more.
Results are best if you allow it to rest a few minutes before serving.
7
To add chicken: Place chicken thighs in the bottom of the baking dish -- if I'm using chicken I use a deep 9x13 pan. Layer the prepared vegetable mixture on top the chicken. Then pour the sauce over all. You might want to make a little more sauce if you're using chicken, or just layer a little of the bottled barbecue sauce over the chicken pcs before you layer on the veg. Proceed as directed. Plan extra time for baking, just in case, especially if you're using frozen chicken.
