crockpot beer chicken tacos
Since there is just two of us, eating a whole chicken is a week long process. So far I’ve really enjoyed the crockpot beer chicken that I made the other day. I have said it before, everything tastes better in a tortilla. I decided this is a good time to test that theory out by putting the beer chicken into a tortilla with cheese. My theory is still right. This makes a great little taco and was a great leftover meal!
Tortilla… I used wheat tortillas because that is all I had.
Microwave for 1 minute. Then eat!
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!
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.
