If you don’t like chilis or beer, please walk away immediately, this post is not for you. This is an example of what goodness cooking in liquor can bring to chicken. It was juicy, flavorful, and fell apart like Isaiah Washington’s career. The only substitute for chicken this good on a Monday night would be the new Domino’s pizza with the delicious new garlicy crust. I suggest throwing leftovers on crusty French bread with a little mustard and realizing your life just became worth so much more.

- 1 Whole Chicken, broken down and skinless, if desired
- 1 can (15 ounces) Stewed Tomatoes
- ¼ cup Olive Oil
- 18 ounces Beer (I used Blue Moon, for kicks.)
- 2 teaspoons Ancho Pepper
- 1 teaspoon Paprika
- 1 teaspoon Black Pepper
- 1 teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper
- 1 teaspoon Chili Powder
- 1 teaspoon Onion Powder
- 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
- 1 teaspoon Thyme
- 1 teaspoon Basil
- 2 whole Bay Leaves
- 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
- Pepper to taste
Mix all the seasonings together.
Coat the chicken breasts with the seasonings and place in the slow cooker.
Add stewed tomatoes, olive oil, and beer.
Cook on low for 5-7 hours. The chicken is about 45 calories an ounce.
I’m sorry about all the slow cooker recipes for all of you that don’t have one. However, they are a God send. It’s like having your own personal grandmother at home to cook you a wonderful smelling dinner that is hot and ready once you get home from a super long day of work where your computer completely collapses and deletes a project you’ve been working on for four hours right before a deadline. Yup. Love you grandma slow cooker.
