BBQ Beer Chicken

I’m totally winging it today everyone! I sat down last night thinking and thinking about how to use the leftover tofu I have in the fridge in a quick and fast meal that I could prep the night before. That way, when I came home from volunteering today I could do less cooking and more eating. Well, I failed. I couldn’t come up with a single simple and appetizing meal. So alas, the tofu will have to wait. I’m open to suggestions for a future quandary!

Anywho, what else is ready as soon as I walk in the door than a crockpot meal? I decided to go crockpot only and try a simple BBQ Beer chicken recipe with some odds and ends in my fridge.

IMG_1333BBQ Beer Chicken
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup bbq sauce
1/2 cup beer
1 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1/2 cup corn
1/2 cup black beans

Serves 2-3 people

Place chicken breasts at the bottom of crockpot. Season with onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper.

Whisk together bbq sauce and beer in a separate cup and pour over chicken.

Pour in beans and corn and lightly incorporate into bbq-beer mixture.IMG_0993

Cook on low for 6 hours or high for 3.5 hours. Mine wasn’t as shreddy as I was hoping for since somebody turned the crockpot off about a half hour early. Ehem, Paul.

To be fair, it came out great anyways!IMG_1329IMG_1330

We served this with sautéed kale and couscous.IMG_1332
