The holidays have started and that means family is in town! We had some over last night and needed a meal large enough to serve all of us but also that didn't require me to be in the kitchen preparing it while they were here. I immediately thought of our crock pot. I have been trying to get as much use out of it as I can. This recipe was really flavorful and super easy, you threw a few ingredients in the pot in the morning and they were ready by dinner time. This makes a ton so either make it for a group or you will have lots of left overs.
Crockpot BBQ Chicken
Source: How Sweet it Is
3 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 6 large)
1 Tablespoon onion powder
1 Tablespoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
8 ounces of beer (classic amber), chicken stock, water or ginger ale
32 ounces of barbecue sauce
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 chicken in crock pot and add remaining barbecue sauce. Let it soak up the sauce once shredded and serve as desired.
