Crockpot BBQ Beer Chicken

Posted by on May 18, 2012 in Food, Main Dishes | 10 comments

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

Ingredients:

  • 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.)

Directions:

  1. 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.
  2. Enjoy!
