Crockpot Beer Chicken

  • Prep Time : 5 minutes



Spray the crockpot with cooking spray (for easier clean-up!)

Place 6-8 chicken breasts in the bottom of the crockpot.

Cover with the spices above or your choice of spices. The beauty of this recipe is that any spices will work!

I was in a hurry, if you have the time brown the chicken in a pan on the stove prior to placing in the crockpot. This will give your chicken a crunchy texture.

Pour 3/4 can/bottle of beer over the top (Use the full can/bottle if using 8 chicken breasts). I used a darker brew for a deeper flavor.

The chicken will be super moist and will practically fall apart. YUM!

You will have a lot of liquid left in the pot when the cooking is complete. You can toss the extra liquid or you can make it into gravy:

Simple Gravy:

Pour the liquid into a medium saucepan. Over Medium high heat bring the mixture to a soft boil.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine 2 Tablespoons corn starch or flour with 2-4 Tablespoons of water. Mix well until there are no clumps.

When your liquid comes to a boil slowly pour the cornstarch/flour mixture into the liquid, stirring constantly.

The mixture should begin to thicken. If you want it thicker, repeat the water and cornstarch step.
