Crockpot Beer Shredded Chicken


  • 2-3 Pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 medium to large onion sliced into half rounds
  • 2 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 Tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 6 Oz chicken broth
  • 8 Oz your favorite beer I used ‘Family Recipe’ by Champion Brewery & Dukes Mayonnaise


  • Place the sliced onion into the bottom of your crockpot.  Top the onions with the boneless skinless chicken breasts.
  • Pour over the chicken broth, followed buy the beer – or more chicken broth if that’s what you’re using.
  • Mix the seasonings together in a bowl and then sprinkle them over the chicken breasts, pressing the seasoning down into the chicken to adhere better.
  • Cover and cook on low for 6 hours. Shred chicken and then let it cook in the juices in the crockpot on low for 30 minutes to an hour before serving.
