Crockpot BBQ Beer Chicken

One of the things I love most about traveling is gathering inspiration to cook after trying new foods. Back to back trips recently to San Francisco and the Caribbean provided plenty of inspiration but little time to cook. I've been too busy to even blog about two wonderful events I attended with the 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!
