A friend of ours made cowboy baked beans at a cookout last Summer and I knew I needed to make them this year! This recipe is super easy to make, plus it frees you up to work on other food for your cookout. Cowboy baked beans are a new twist on normal baked beans and go great with fried chicken.

Our Summer’s are filled with pool time, cookouts, fireworks, more. Our family is a huge fan of fried chicken, but who wants to stand over a hot fryer all day in the middle of Summer? I know I don’t. Being that fried chicken is usually the main dish of our cookouts I needed a simple solution.
Walmart came to the rescue! They have a huge variety of fried chicken in their deli section and in the mobile units near checkout. They offer 8pc grab-n-go, single pieces, buckets, and bulk purchases. If you are going to buy a bulk purchase you will want to call in your order ahead of time.
For our little family cookout the other day I served the fried chicken, cowboy baked beans and yellow watermelon.
Have you heard of a yellow watermelon? This was a first, and by accident but it is really tasty!
Be sure to check out your local Walmart deli for delicious fresh fried chicken. I’d love to hear what you’d use it for this summer!
