Ingredients

  • 3

    pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 6 large)

  • 1

    tablespoon onion powder

  • 1

    tablespoon smoked paprika

  • 1

    teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/2

    teaspoon salt

  • 1/2

    teaspoon pepper

  • 8

    ounces of beer (I used a classic amber)

  • 32

    ounces of barbecue sauce

Directions

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. Notes: 1. I’ve found that *thinner* barbecue sauce works better (such as Bone Suckin’ Sauce) than thicker sauce (like Sweet Baby Ray’s). If you choose to use a thicker sauce, you may want to add a little more beer (or liquid) in order for the sauce not to burn and thicken on the edges of the pot. This is also the reason I don’t use my homemade barbecue sauce. 2. If you don’t want to use beer, you can try a ginger ale, chicken stock, or even water. 3. This makes a ton of chicken and I usually freeze immediately freeze a container for later.
