Beer Crockpot Chicken

Now that I have gotten in to attempting recipes, I’ve been trying to find things that I would like to cook.  I really prefer to make desserts, but I also want to get better at cooking main dishes.  I really enjoy cooking with the crockpot because it is so easy to put a bunch of ingredients in a pot and walk away.  I got this recipe from My Daily Dish. I figured that I like chicken and I like beer so it HAS to be good!

Ingredients

1 whole chicken (according to the recipe I used, you can also use cut up pieces or 4-6 chicken breasts)
1 can of any kind of beer  (I used a bottle of Leinenkugel’s Sunset Wheat because that’s what I had in the fridge)
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp Basil
1/2 tsp Paprika
1/2 tsp Kosher Salt
1/2 tsp Black Pepper

I put all the ingredients in first and then added the whole chicken.

Cook in the crockpot on high for 3 – 4 hours or on low for 7 – 8 hours.  I cooked it on high.


The recipe said you could also cook a frozen chicken, you just have to cook it longer.

  1. Shouldn’t that chicken look more golden brown and less yellow???

  2. I didn’t take a picture of the chicken until the next day. So it was cold at this point. It tasted really good though!

  3. So how did you like it?

    1. It was really good! Definitely worth a try!

      1. Thanks, I’ll have to try making it.

  4. […] I have a basketball game and a student council meeting after school so it’s crockpot night.  Beer can chicken in the crockpot […]

  5. All i have on hand is smoked paprika so my hopes are still very high for this. My husband is going to love this. Thanks!

    1. Let me know! That sounds great!

      1. delicious he said! Next time I am going to try just bone in chicken breasts in stead of a whole chicken

  6. How did it not dry out? Chicken is such a lean meat to cook in crockpot.

    1. Cooking chicken in the crock pot actually cooks it better keeping the juices in the same place instead of drying out like you get with baking. The mean is so tender it literally falls off the bone!

  7. By far the best chicken we’ve had some in ages! Can’t wait to fix it again 😊

  8. is there any sauce left? I love crispy skin does it has it?

  9. I’m cooking one t the present time. I used Montreal Chicken seasoning inside and out, so we’ll see how it turns out.

  10. I put 4 foil balls in the juices and placed the chicken on top. I also put olive oil on the skin and sprinkled it with herbes de provence, Yumm!
