Ingredients

  • 4

    chicken breasts

  • 4

    cups minimum of chopped mushrooms

  • 1/2

    onion, diced

  • 1/2

    cup of dark beer, I prefer Black Butte Porter. In fact I swear by that one.

  • salt and pepper

  • garlic

  • garlic powder

  • onion powder

  • chili powder

  • dried parsley

  • cornstarch

  • 2

    chicken gravy packets (beef works too!)

  • 1/4

    cup heavy cream

  • 2-3

    cups of water, but you can use chicken stock

Directions

Brown chicken breasts on both sides in your heated pan. While chicken is browning add your diced onions to the slowcooker and a couple pinches of salt and about a pinch of pepper. Add about 1 tsp. of garlic powder, 1 tsp. dried parsley, 1 tsp. onion powder and 1/2 tsp. chili powder to your crockpot. Don’t forget to check on your chicken! Add 1 clove of minced garlic to your crock pot along with 3 cups of water and 2 chicken gravy packets. When your chicken is nearly finished browning, deglaze your pan with about 1/2-3/4 cup of beer and let it simmer for a minute or two. Add your chicken and any sauce in the pan to the slow cooker. I really like this beer because it doesn’t leave an overwhelming beer flavor to my dishes it just sings harmony. :) You may feel differently so use your judgement. Turn your crockpot on high and don’t forget to add in your mushrooms. Mix 4 tbsp. cornstarch with a few tablespoons of cold water- just enough to mix in the cornstarch completely. Then pour mixture into your crockpot with the goodies! An hour before serving I added 1/4 c. heavy cream. Depending on how long you cook yours you may need to slice the chicken before serving. Taste before you serve and use additional seasonings if needed. I recommend serving over white rice, plate lunch style. :)
