Slow cooker BBQ beer chicken

Sharing is caring!

Our slow cooker BBQ beer chicken is super simple, really tasty and will only take a few minutes to put together in the morning.

You might think of your slow cooker as more suited to autumn and winter cooking, but there’s lots of delicious slow cooker recipes that are perfectly suited to summer.

And using the slow cooker means no slaving over a hot stove on a warm day.

You can give the BBQ beer chicken a summery lift by scattering the finished dish with chopped raw peppers and a handful of fresh herbs.

I use a Crockpot sauté style slow cooker with removable hob safe pan so I start the chicken casserole off in that on the hob then transfer to the slow cooker once it’s boiling. If you don’t have a hob safe slow cooker then use a saucepan for the hob cooking parts.

Serve it alongside a big green salad and some chilled rice salad or quick and easy oven fries.
