Crock Pot Chicken and Beer

Yep, you read that right. I cooked some chicken in beer today. And my house smelled so very delicious. 

I started with 6 bone-in chicken thighs. I doctored them up with salt and pepper, oregano, and thyme. Go with whatever spices work for you. 

Heat 1 tbsp EVOO in a frying pan (again, I use ceramic) over med-high heat until it’s rippling. Add about 1/2-1 tsp minced garlic (to taste), and stir for 1 minute. Add all 6 pieces of chicken. Sear each side for 5 minutes, and then transfer chicken to your crock pot. 


Next dump a bottle of beer over the chicken. I chose a local brew made right here in Stratford, CT. It’s Two Roads Worker’s Comp Saison. It really brought out the savoriness of the chicken and herbs I used.



Set the crock pot on low and cook for 6 hours. Add some thawed carrots (I had a bag of frozen baby carrots in the freezer that I ran water over to thaw) about 30 minutes before the 6 hours are up.

Holy God was this good. And easy. I’m going to make this like every week. I paired it with Jasmine rice (a staple in our house), and it was scrumptious.

  1. Dayum, you have been cookin’ it up! This sounds delicious. I love anything cooked in beer (which is weird because I can’t stand drinking it). This is going on the list of things I have to try sometime soon. Thanks!
