Crockpot BBQ Beer ChickenMay 18, 2012
This is our go-to Crockpot BBQ Chicken recipe. I’ve made it a number of times and it has never failed me.
It does have beer in it, which I think makes for fantastic tasting chicken, but if you don’t want to use beer, you could use chicken stock, ginger ale, or even water. (Although, I haven’t tried any of those, so I can’t vouch for them 100%).
All four of our kids will eat this BBQ Beer Chicken with no complaints. So, you know it’s got to be good!
I can’t tell you all enough how good, how easy, and how much you will all love this. So, go make it! 🙂
Crockpot BBQ Beer Chicken
recipe from How Sweet It Is
- 6 large chicken breasts (about 3 lbs)
- 1 T onion powder
- 1 T paprika
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 8 oz of beer (we use Guiness)
- 32 oz of BBQ sauce (she recommends a thinner bbq sauce or add more liquid if you use something like Sweet Baby Ray’s. The day I made this I realized I was out of BBQ sauce, so I made this recipe and it was perfect.)
- Season your chicken with the onion powder, paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Add to crockpot, then add beer, and 24 oz of bbq sauce. Cook on low for 8 hours, then shred chicken, add the rest of your bbq sauce, toss chicken to coat, and then let it rest for 10-15 minutes to let everything absorb.
