This BBQ beer chicken was delicious. I love chicken, I love BBQ sauce, and I LOVE LOVE good beer. So this was definitely a winner. The only downside was that it tastes like summer and I made it on a freezing day in January, which was depressing. It really would be a great picnic food.
All you need is...
- 5-6 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts--make sure they're thawed because if you put them in frozen there will be too much liquid at the end
- 32 oz. BBQ sauce
- 8 oz. beer, I used Shock Top End of the World Midnight Wheat but any kind will work. Do yourself a favor and use a nice amber or wheat craft brew, you don't want to cheat on the beer because you can really taste it in the recipe
Season the chicken to your liking. I used garlic salt, pepper, paprika, and cayenne pepper.
Put in crock pot and cover with beer.
Add about 3/4 of the BBQ sauce.
Cook on low for 8 hours...about 7 hours in, shred the chicken and add the remaining sauce.
And then, devour.
