Crockpot Beer Buffalo Chicken

I went to a bridal shower and bachelorette party! Took a Friday off, drove to The Cleve, went directly to my favorite brewery. Went to dinner, then went to another brewery. Showered the bride with love…

shower…then went to another brewery. Went to a fancy dinner, then went to a neat taphouse. We piled ourselves in a cab and returned home for a few rounds of Cards Against Humanity. It was my kind of weekend. But needless to say, after little sleep and the 6 hour drive back, I was exhausted and didn’t feel like cooking.

shells1Crockpot Beer Buffalo Chicken

3 lbs chicken (we used boneless breasts)

2 teaspoons dried parsley

1/4 teaspoon dried dill

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon onion powder

1/4 teaspoon dried basil

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1 12 oz. bottle beer

3/4 cup hot sauce, divided

Place chicken, seasonings, 3/4 of the beer, and 1/4 cup hot sauce into the crockpot. Cook on high for for 4 hours or low for 6 hours. Remove and shred the chicken and discard any remaining liquid. Return chicken to the crockpot and pour in the rest of the beer and an additional 1/2 cup of hot sauce. Cook for an additional half hour so the chicken soaks up the sauce. Use as you like!
