Crock Pot Pulled Beer Chicken

It is definitely fall in my city.  The coats are out, furry socks are ready to be put on and the fireplace is ready for its first fire.  I almost forgot my steaming cup of hot apple cider and my apple glade plug ins.  Fall has officially hit my household and I am loving it.

Along with the fall and winter seasons come the hot soups/stew recipes that keep us all warm.  Now this isn’t a soup or stew recipe but it’s next in line with comfort meals.  Why… because it was made in a crock pot.  I love recipes likes this because it allows you to cook a great recipe but dedicate your time elsewhere.  You can throw everything into a pot and come back hours later to a salivating dish to be devoured by everyone.

Crock Pot Pulled Beer Chicken

The first night we had this Crock Pot Pulled Beer Chicken we had it with hard tacos.  (shown in the picture)  The second night we had leftovers and we put the meat with some borracho beans on top of a tostada shell.  This recipe just might be my NEW favorite crock pot recipe.  I’m going to try and make some more crock pot recipes for the blog just because they are nice and handy to have around.

    I LOVE using my slow cooker in the winter. It’s my most favorite piece of kitchen equipment. The fact that you paired beer and chicken together make me love this dish even more.
