I'm in my mid 30s (gulp) and married to a great guy. We live in Northern VA with our crazy hound dog Cady. We love to travel, eat great food, drink good wine, cheer for our favorite sports teams and have fun with friends. This blog is a collection of things - travel stories, DC happenings, home improvement projects, recipes, and all kinds of fun adventures we're having!
This winter/spring, I have really tried to use the crockpot a lot more than before...which, seeing that I'd only made 1 or 2 meals in it ever, it wasn't a huge feat... But I have really fallen in love. Pork, chili, bolognese sauce, bbq...there are so many options!
When I saw this post on one of the other blogs I read, and noticed at the very bottom the words 'beer bbq chicken.' I knew it would be perfect to make while M was out running 50 miles.
Season chicken with onion powder, garlic powder, paprika,
salt and pepper. Add to crockpot, then add beer and 24 ounces of barbecue
sauce. Cook on low for 8 hours, tossing once or twice if desired. After 8
hours, shred and add remaining barbecue sauce. Toss chicken to coat and let sit
for 10-15 minutes before serving to absorb everything. Serve as desired.
I didn't even really have to shred it - the chicken just fell apart as I tried to get it out of the crockpot with the tongs. It doesn't get any easier, or tastier, than this. It makes a ton, but you could always use less of everything...or just eat it for almost every meal like we H did for a week!
