Beer Can Chicken in Crockpot



1 whole chicken
3/4 beer *
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp parsley
1 tsp basil
1/2 tsp pepper



Place chicken in Crock Pot, breast side down.

Pour beer over chicken.
Sprinkle spices on bird.
Cover and cook on high 4-5 hours, or on low 7-8 hours.
Remove chicken carefully from slow cooker to a platter. Be careful, it will be very tender, and will fall off the bone.

**For added flavor insert one cut up lemon, 3 cloves of garlic and one sprig of fresh rosemary into body of chicken


**This recipe is versatile. You can use a whole or cut up chicken, or boneless breasts or thighs if you like. The spices can be modified to your family’s tastes, and any variety of beer can be used. Hard cider or wine will work, too.
