A few weeks ago, Jecca posted this recipe for beer can chicken. Beer can chicken is delicious, but I don’t get to make it often. My husband doesn’t like chicken on the bone; we always have to buy boneless everything.
I brainstormed for a while, and decided to give it a try in the crock pot using some boneless thighs. It was really awesome! I had to adjust some of the seasonings since it didn’t roast and caramelize like it would in the oven, but YUUUUUM. Yum.
Also, I used Miller 64, so this really only had as many calories as the chicken I used. You could easily use boneless breasts with this or bone in chicken pieces. Use whatever you want!
Crock Pot Beer Chicken
2 Pounds Boneless Chicken Thighs (Or Whatever Chicken You Want)
1 Can Beer
3 Cloves Garlic, Minced
1 Medium Onion, Minced
1/2 tsp Pepper
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Paprika
1 tsp Chili Powder
1 tsp Sugar
1 Pinch Cayenne Pepper (Optional, To Taste)
Put the chicken and onions in the crock pot.
Season with seasonings, garlic, and pour the beer over the top.
Cook on high for 3-4 or low for 7-8 hours.
I ended up shredding mine to create a pulled chicken and served it over mashed potatoes and cauliflower.
