Slow cooked, pulled beer BBQ chicken

So there have been irregular updates recently because we have been super busy! I will be trying to update as much as possible, but it will not be as often as I want. This post however is about some delicious slow cooked food. The key to this recipe is to let it cook for the whole times. It cooks for 8 hours and it makes it super tender and delicious.

Ingredients:
5 to 6 table spoons of garlic powder, cumin, red pepper flakes, red cayenne pepperĀ and ground black pepper.
1/4 cup of BBQ sauce of choice
1.5 lbs of chicken
10 ounces of beer (I used a good beer, made a difference)
Buns for each

Recipe:
Step 1.
Gather seasoningsĀ and BBQ sauce and chicken.

Step 2. Put seasonings on chicken and add BBQ sauce. Let marinade for a couple of hours.

Step 3. Measure out beer to put in the slow cooker.

Step 4. Add beer to slow cooker with chicken. Set up on low for eight hours and let cook. Now is time to go do something fun, watch a movie or go do something else. It’s going to be awhile. It should slowly cook and add color.

Step 5. After 8 hours use a fork to break apart the chicken and then cook for another 30 minutes to let the juice soak into the meat.

Step 6. Put chicken on a bun and add a little more BBQ sauce. Serve and enjoy some beer with these.


My go to sandwich

In the spirit of finishing sandwich week, here is the last sandwich I was going to post. Nothing fancy, no grilling, spreading or even cooking ahead of time. I basically eat this or a variation most days of the week. I love to get delicious bagels from Haggen or any local bakeries, depends where I am.

There will also be no ingredients or step by step, because it’s pretty simple.
I use provolone cheese, smoked ham, and a delicious asiago bagel here.

Look at all that delicous food stacked in a perfectly made bagel. It makes my mouth water and look forward to it tomorrow as well.
