Kentucky Food Bloggers Group but hope to feature recipes inspired by that weekend soon.
As much as I love to travel, I miss cooking while I'm away. I miss my kitchen. I miss putting food in front of my family that I prepared. So I've been super anxious to get back to it, but you guessed it, haven't had time!
This recipe for Crockpot BBQ Beer Chicken was a perfect dish to transition me from the luxury and indulgence of vacation dining to the everyday, stick-to-your-ribs kind of cooking I typical do. Tender, sticky, sweet, slightly smokey/spicy barbecue chicken was just what we needed on a blustery, busy weekday. A great use of your crockpot if there every was one!
Crockpot BBQ Beer Chicken
3 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 6 large breasts)
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
8 ounces beer
32 ounces barbecue sauce (I used Sweet Baby Ray's)
Season chicken with onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper and place in slow cooker. Add beer and 24 ounces of barbecue sauce.
Cook on low for 8 hours, tossing once or twice if desired. After 8 hours, shred and add remaining barbecue sauce. Serve as desired.
