Description

Slow cooked chicken with a nice spice to it. I usually serve this on top of white rice or paired with jambalaya.

Ingredients

  • 4 pieces Chicken Breast
  • 2 cans (15 Oz. Can) Stewed Tomatoes
  • ¼ cups Olive Oil
  • 12 ounces, fluid Beer (I Used Light Beer But Any Will Work)
  • 2 teaspoons Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Chili Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Thyme
  • 1 teaspoon Basil
  • 2 whole Bay Leaves

Preparation

Mix all the seasonings together.

Coat the chicken breasts with the seasonings.

Place in the slow cooker.

Add in beer, stewed tomatoes, olive oil, and any extra seasonings that are left (if any).

Stir around a bit.

Cook on low for 5-7 hours.

When finished, shred the chicken with 2 forks and serve over white rice!

Unsure of the amount of chicken. What does 4 (pieces) of chicken equate to?

This was such an easy recipe. I was able to throw everything in the slow cooker before I went to work and had a delicious (and very spicy) meal when we got home at the end of the day. I will definitely make this again soon. It will be fun to experiment with different flavors of beer.

Flavorful recipe. Make sure you choose a beer you really like, since the flavor comes through pretty strongly. I used chicken breasts and they got a little too dry, but I chalk that up to my first time using my new crock pot. Next time I’ll try just cooking it on low for 4.5 hours rather than 6. It is spicy–so tone down the spices if you’re not up for it!

I’m always looking for new slow cooker recipes, but my normally easy-to-please family would not eat this.

this was really good. i halved the recipe and added a chopped bell pepper and a couple tbsp tomato paste to thicken the sauce. i seasoned my rice with chili powder. i wanted it to be a bit spicier so i also added several shakes of tobasco sauce. i loved that it was so easy. the chicken was really tender. i will definitely make this again and play around with the spices.

This is a great “set it and forget it” recipe. I start this in the morning before I go to work and when I get home, dinner is ready to serve. It’s a bit on the spicy side. If you don’t like that, you can cut the spices down. The chicken is extremely tender. I used a very light beer to start with and didn’t notice a strong flavor of beer in the chicken. I am looking forward to experimenting with stronger flavors of beer to see what happens.
