Chrissy's Easy Slow Cooker Beer Can Chicken
I have to admit I love Beer can chicken but we don't eat it as much in the winter due to no one wants to stand out in the cold by a BBQ grill. So I played around with some ingredients and found a way to infuse those same flavors inside your home. You can put it all together turn it on and walk away just to have an amazing easy but delicious meal later with out standing in the cold.
I know you can do this in your oven if you have a beer can chicken rack, and a roasting pan, but this is another variation and a different technique.
I hope you like it and enjoy it!

4 Large Boneless Chicken Breasts
1 Can or Bottle of your favorite Beer (Non Alcoholic OK)
2 Tablespoons of Weber Beer Can Chicken Seasoning
1 Tablespoon of Poultry Seasoning
1 Tablespoon of Garlic Powder
2 Teaspoons of Dry Mustard Powder
1 Teaspoon Dry Parsley
1 Teaspoon Season Salt
2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil
Rub your olive oil all over your chicken breasts and coat with olive oil. Next place in your slow cooker and then evenly sprinkle your seasonings over the chicken breasts. (At this point don't be afraid to add Mushrooms, chopped zucchini, asparagus, or any vegetables you choose to cook with your chicken.)
Gently pour your beer along the side of your slow cooker not over top of your chicken and pour very slowly to avoid foaming up. (if you pour it over top of your chicken you will wash off all the seasonings.) Next place your lid on your slow cooker set it for medium heat at 4-6 hours and walk away.
Serve and enjoy this juicy flavor infused meal!
I like to add sauteed mushrooms over and a slice of Provolone cheese. As you plate your Beer Can Chicken Breasts just place a slice of your favorite cheese over top, and the cheese will melt itself from the internal heat. Top it with sauteed mushrooms cooked on the stove in olive oil, butter & minced garlic! Don't forget about your flavorful vegetables you cooked along with your chicken! Great other ideas and sides for this dish are chop your chicken and add it to a dinner salad, or accompany it whole with a baked potatoes, and/or a rice dish, dinner roll or biscuit.
