You don’t have to like the taste of beer to love this chicken recipe. It’s a great “set it and forget it” meal. All you need is a few items and a good imagination and this will be a great meal, paired with favorite sides. I like to serve this dish with grilled asparagus and mac and cheese.

This is also a Weight Watchers friendly dish (3 points per serving), so if you are watching your weight (and who isn’t?) this will be a great meal. After cooking this chicken in the crock pot for 5-6 hours, the meat is tender and moist. It goes great with a number of sides and additions to the meat.

Crock Pot Beer Chicken

2 pounds chicken breast, sliced

1 bottle/can of beer (your choice)

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 Tablespoon dried oregano

1 small onion, chopped

3 Tablespoons minced garlic

1 small green bell pepper, chopped

Place all ingredients in crock pot and cook on high for 4-5 hours. Cooking time depends on level of heat crock pot is set on. I set mine on low and let it cook for about 6-8 hours. I also sauté my vegetables onion, garlic, bell pepper) before I add them to the crock pot.

Remove from crock pot and serve with side dishes of your choice.

Bon appétit!
