Beer ‘n BBQ Chicken – doin’ it crockpot style

Ingredients
  • 3lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 3/4 cup onion, chopped small
  • 3/4 cup red peppers, chopped small
  • 1 Tbl garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 12 ounces beer (I used Heineken)
  • 4 cups of thick bbq sauce – I use either Bacon BBQ Sauce or Sticky Honey BBQ Sauce
Instructions
  1. Add onions, garlic and peppers down in the crockpot.
  2. Lay chicken on top.
  3. Sprinkle paprika, salt and pepper.
  4. Add beer and barbecue sauce.
  5. Cook on high for 4 hours or ~8 hours on low.
  6. After 4 (or 8) hours, take out the chicken, shred the chicken and put back into the crock put.
  7. Allow to sit for 20-30 minutes, uncovered, as the shredded meat will absorb the sauce.
Notes
Ideas for this:
– Serve on a bun with coleslaw or cheese
– nachos with shredded cheddar
– on a bbq pizza with bacon and onions
– a fork 🙂
