I can honestly say this is one of the best crockpot recipes that I have ever made! I make a lot of chicken dishes and it is not uncommon to hear my kids say “we are having chicken again???” Admittedly, I often make just a boring roasted chicken. This time, I wanted to get a bit more creative.
This is the third beer recipe that I have made, and I am starting to believe that almost anything tastes good with a little bit of beer thrown into it 🙂
- 3 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tbsp smoked paprika
- 1/4 cup water
- ½ tsp sea salt
- ½ tsp pepper
- 8 oz beer (I used a Hampshire Ale)
- 24 oz barbecue sauce
Combine 6 large boneless chicken breasts (whole) and season with garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, pepper, water and beer in a crock pot. Pour in water and beer and 2/3 cup of barbecue sauce.
Cook on low temperature in a crockpot (covered) for approximately 8 hours. After 8 hours shred the chicken with a fork. Add barbecue sauce to your liking.
The pulled chicken is delicious on a bulkie roll or on a large whole-wheat bun. Yummy with pickles!
Note: If you don’t want to use beer, you can substitute with ginger ale. I got that great tip at http://www.howsweeteats.com/2011/10/crockpot-bbq-beer-chicken/
