Crock Pot Beer Chicken (WW 3 Points)

I was looking for an easy chicken recipe I could throw into the crock pot and have ready for dinner.  Working from home everyone thinks you should have all this free time.  LOL they would be so wrong I'm usually at my keyboard none stop and don't have a free moment, so easy meals always help me out.  This chicken dish was very moist, it almost fell apart when I took from the crock pot to the plate.

I just happen to have one bottle of beer left from when my dad was here so I used it (I know it's the only way beer is used in my house if I cook with it).  This was a simple recipe that was extremely tasty.  I found this recipe on one of my favorite weight watcher sites Laaloosh for Crock Pot Beer Chicken.  I made this one since I'm still on a high protein, low carb and low sugar diet so I can eat the chicken and then add things for the boys like the au gratin potatoes they had.

  • 2lbs skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 bottle or can of your favorite beer

  2. Feel free to change out the spices and herbs and use whatever you’d like.

  1. Oh yum! Whenever I make a turkey, I pour a beer over it before I put it in the oven and it always comes out SOOO juicy and delicious.

  2. Mmmmmm..... looks so good. I used to use beer in cooking but since candida.... I don't. I do use the crockpot a whole lot. I love that I can throw the food in, leave and come back to a meal.

  5. I've seen that recipe pinned several times and I wondered how it would come out. We've made "Beer Can Chicken" on the grill and loved it, just didn't know if crockpot beer chicken would be as good. I'll be putting it on our menu next week. Might be a good Sunday night dinner.
