Crockpot BBQ Beer Chicken

Found this on pinterest and making tomorrow for dinner.  Will update.

2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 4 large)

2 t onion powder

2 t smoked paprika

3/4 t garlic powder

1/4 t salt

1/4 t pepper

8 ounces of beer (I used a summer shandy)

32 ounces of barbecue sauce, divided

Put all including 16 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.

Original Blogger’s 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.
