There’s this pesky little rule in Tennessee (maybe just Knoxville? Not sure) that you aren’t allowed to have a grill on apartment patios. Obviously when you think about it, it makes perfect sense. Lots of apartments, wooden balconies, one lose spark – I get it. But on holiday weekends it’s practically un-American to not have BBQ.
So what’s an apartment-living girl to do? Use her crockpot!
Beer BBQ Pulled Chicken
(Adapted from How Sweet Eats)
3 skinless chicken breasts
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
8 oz beer (I used Sam Adams Summer Ale)
16 oz BBQ sauce (I used Sweet Baby Ray’s)
How – To:
1. Nice thing about a crock pot? No need to defrost the chicken! Just pop those guys right in. Cover them in the spices.
3. I turned my crockpot on high and let it work for about two hours and then set it to low the for the next three. But in general it’s about 4 hours on high, 8 hours on low.
4. Shred up the chicken and put it back in the sauce and let it soak up for 15-20 minutes.
