Comments

  1. Wow I can’t believe the bad feed-back on this recipe! I have made this several times and my family loves it! It’s a perfect recipe for shredded chicken. I use it as my taco meat. I also will add BBQ sauce to the leftovers and it’s great for BBQ chicken pizza or on salads, over rice! I love this recipe!

  2. I wish I would have read the reviews before making this. It looks and smells wonderful. Extremely bland and mushy even after I put on additional spices. Will not make again.

  3. Made this tonight and after reading the reviews was leary. Went on low for lil over 2 hours and then put on grill w barbecue sauce. YUMMY!!!

  4. This is amazing. Ridiculously juicy.

  5. I made this but when the chicken was fully cooked I transferred it (just the chicken none of the liquid) to a baking pan and brushed each piece with BBQ sauce then put it under the broiler for 5 to 10 minutes to cook the sauce and it was amazing. There were no leftovers.

  6. This recipe is awful. The picture with this article is very deceiving. I made this tonight following the recipe exactly and had boiled soft chicken sitting in a bath of cooked beer. It SMELLED good, but was EXTREMELY bland. I’m gonna have to get crafty to use up all the leftovers I now have. Total waste and I’m bummed.

    • I agree, inedible! I cook a lot, and make some amazing recipes, but this was dry, bland and tasted like chicken boiled in beer.

  7. allyson p says:

    Absolutely awful. I made this exactly as directed and couldn’t have been more disappointed.

  8. Michele says:

    My husband said this is he best chicken he has ever had!
    I used Sam Adams Light and cooked on high 4 hours.
    Sides were Greek Salad and beer bread.

  9. Going to make this tonight. I read all comments and can’t wait to see if mine turns out! Just looking for something simple and i make beer can chicken all the time!! Wish me luck!

  10. Jim Loften says:

    Please share recipes as I’m the head cook, and I’m just getting started.

  11. This was meh. I do think it would be better if you brown the chicken beforehand. Will not make again.

  12. I’m not a fan of beer at all, but my aunt makes tasty beer BBQ in the summer so I thought I’d give it a try. My aunt says cheap beer is the best to cook with because it has the most flavor. I couldn’t bring myself to be seen buying bargain basement beer so I ended up stopping at a local gas station and getting a large bottle of Heineken.

    The recipe doesn’t say how much beer to use, so I bought the 22oz bottle. I added fresh minced garlic, potatoes and mushrooms. I also used 2 chicken breasts and two drumsticks instead of all those chicken breasts since I was only cooking for two plus leftovers. I think the chicken came out moist because of this modification. Towards the 6.5 hr mark I added egg noodles and turned it into a meal. I shredded the chicken and the noodles soaked up all the remaining liquid. The result was amazing. I actually went back for seconds, which I never do. The picture definitely doesn’t reflect the end result. All in all, I highly recommend this recipe.

  13. I browned the chicken breasts in a skillet and then added to the crock pot with the seasonings and beer. Absolutely delicious. I make this during the summer time. My side dishes are fresh sliced tomato or cucumbers or potato salad. It is easy and very delicious

  14. Very disappointing! No clue how to pictured version is browned–you can’t really brown meat in the crockpot. I used 4 large breasts, followed recipe and it was cooked, fall apart chicken laying in juice, pretty boring. Since it did fall apart I think I’ll shred, mix with BBQ sauce, & eat on rolls.

  15. I only used three large frozen chicken breasts (equaled about 1.75lbs) and the chicken came out so juicy and brown (used guinness). Cooked it for 4.5hrs. If you don’t like oregano, I would half the amount. I have made chicken breasts in the crock pot that come out with this weird texture of grainy mush, but found out if you put the chicken in frozen, you get the right result. I would definitely make this again!!

  16. I just made this and it was so stinkin’ delicious. I did, however, half this recipe since it’s just me and my hubby. I DID NOT half the beer though. I think this is why my chicken wasn’t dry. 4 chicken breasts and one bottle of beer. So if you use 8 chicken breasts I would use two bottles or cans of beer. The beer I used was Pipeline Porter by Kona Brewing Co. A dark, rich beer with coffee undertones. OMG so good. This was delicious and I will definitely be making it again!

    I have made this two times. Once using skinless bone-in chicken thighs seasoned with salt, pepper and garlic salt which I marinated in the refrigerator for an hour and combined in the crock pot with a teaspoon of dried oregano, a can of chicken broth and the juice of a lemon as well as the beer. The second time I used skinless, bone-in chicken thighs seasoned with salt, pepper and garlic salt which I marinated in the refrigerator for an hour and combined in the crock pot with a can of chicken broth, one large chopped onion and five sprigs of fresh thyme and the beer. Both times, this dish came out perfectly. I like to serve this with rice cooked in seasoned chicken broth. It is pure comfort food.

  18. Barbara Gornick says:

    Oh dear, it looks so good and crunchy. I like dry chicken but after reading the reviews not sure I want to make this. Is there a way to get the chicken crunchy looking like in the photo?

  19. I’ve made this with Guinness, Shipyard Pumpkin, and Budweiser. Delicious each time. I usually do 4-5 chicken breasts instead of 8.

  20. All I got was boiled chicken drowning in beer. Followed exact directions. Now I have to go BBQ it to get it brown. What a waste of good chicken.

  21. This was one of the worst meals I’ve ever made. I followed the recipe, and it tasted awful. Cross this one off the list – I’ll never make it again. A total waste of time and money.

    • allyson p says:

      Wish I’d read this before I wasted the time and a chicken’s life. Perhaps the worst meal I’ve ever made!

  22. Ok, so I read the comments and I’m sorry for those who had dry chicken, but mine was fabulous! I used 5 large, frozen, Tyson breast and one bottle of Yuenling (sp) Lagar with garlic powder (lots) & oregano. I did what one person suggested and started it on high for one hour and then on low. I ran errands for about 4 hours and arrived home at dinner time. Chicken cooked 5 hours total. I bought hot side dishes while I was out. I’ll definitely make again. Thanks!

  23. Blondie says:

    This was terrible. Way too much oregano flavor. Chicken was dry. Won’t do this again.

  24. I was thinking of a chicken crock pot meal (cause I’m tired of potroast, love it, just want something new) and seen this idea about chicken in beer in the crockpot. I love the idea, but with all the comments, I sure don’t want to go wrong.

    All I have is Budweiser, 2-3 bottles of. It’s my stepdad’s, but I don’t mind drinking it either. I prefer Blue Moon, or Amber Bock, neither are on hand. How would BW turn out? I thought of using potatoes, baby carrots, peas, corn, cream of celery (or C.o.Chicken), diced tomatoes, and maybe lemon juice (or something sweat, sliced lemons, oranges, cherries or pineapples)… but I never made a recipe like this before, so I don’t know how this would turn out. I’m not much of a Chef, so I don’t know how I’d put it all together, concerning proportions and cook time, and I have a 6 or 8 quart cooker… I think. Not labeled, Idk for sure, but it’s big.

    Be feeding a family of 5-6, with 3 kids, big appetites. Any suggested comments would be great. Opinions, for or against the idea, will be duelly noted. Will let you guys know the final meal and result.

    Thanks in advance.

    I made this using bone in chicken thighs, but I took the skin off. I used Guinness, 4 cloves of fresh garlic, 1/4 teaspoon of chilli flakes and 2 teaspoons of mixed French herbs. After the chicken was done I took it off the bone and added water and chicken Bisto to make gravy and then served it over mashed potatoes for the non-dieters and sautéed cabbage for myself (the dieter). We all loved it and the flavour was fabulous!

  26. I would recommend adjusting the recipe as follows:

    1. Use skin-on, bone-in chicken thighs instead of skinless, boneless chicken breasts. You can remove the skin, bones, and fat after the chicken is cooked.

    2. Cut up vegetables (as if you were making pot roast) and place them in the crock pot with the beer first. They will take longer to cook than the chicken (especially if you use potatoes).

    3. Season and brown the chicken in a skillet before placing in it a crock pot.

    4. Start checking the chicken for doneness after 2 hours. Add the herbs when the chicken is almost done.

    5. Use the leftover broth to make a gravy for the chicken and vegetables.

  27. VeggieGrettie says:

    Unfortunately I had a REALLY BAD result with this recipe. I followed it to the T and cooked it EXACTLY as instructed and the result was soooooo dry that my family didn’t eat more than a bite (I am not a meat eater, but my husband and son are). I bought 2 pounds of organic chicken breasts and that set me back $18. Major bummer.

  28. We have done this on the grill. It is awesome. Looking forward to trying it in the crock pot.

  29. Tried this recipe and it blew the lid off the crock pot… Literally, the pressure from the beer blew the lid off and across the countertop. Chicken looked like it had been drowned, and was all wrinkly. It looked nothing like the photo above. Will never cook this again!!!

  30. This turned out great! But in my fashion, I made a few changes that may have made a difference. I only used 5 chicken breasts instead of 8. I used Cayenne Pepper instead of Black Pepper, and all the other spices I did to taste–so way more than 1 tsp the recipe called for. Having done Crock Pot cooking in the past, you need to over do on certain spices in order for them to not get lost. Or do what someone else suggested, and add spices an hour before the end of cooking time–but that kind of defeats the point of putting it in the pot and forgetting about it. I happened to have a leftover can of Guinness (go figure), so I used it–but only about 3/4 since I reduced the number of breasts. I set the Crock Pot on low for about 1.5 hours, then switched it to high for the last three; so all-in-all, I only did 4.5 hours. The breasts were tender and succulent, and VERY flavorful. I also used the gentleman’s recommendation of creating a gravy from the broth, which just added a nice touch. Served it with Quinoa and mixed vegetables. Happy eating!

  31. Chicken was dry. Won’t try this again

  32. meanmybabe says:

    I made this today following all the directions, only substituting Italian seasoning in place of Oregano, adding some onions and using a 16 oz size Corona beer….After 4 hours of cooking on ‘warm’, I checked to see how the chicken was doing and it was already done and very dry !! Maybe if using dark meat it would be better, but white meat just always dries out in the crock pot for me…

  33. I made this last night and it was YUMMY! I used 4 mostly-frozen chicken breasts (huge ones), 2 bottles of Coors Light, a heaping tsp of salt (and some extra sprinkled over the top of each breast), a full tsp of black pepper, a heaping tbsp of garlic powder (cuz we love garlic), a heaping tbsp of dried oregano leaves, one small diced onion. I put all of the ingredients in before the chicken and then ladled the mixture over top of the breasts once they were in the pot. I cooked everything for an hour on High to make sure the breasts thawed, then I turned it down to Low. I cooked it all for 8 hours total (1 on high, 7 on low). There was SO much liquid that at the 6 hour mark I took some out and kept it to add back in if things got too dry. I checked it every half hour then but had no problems. At the 7 hour mark, I turned the breasts over and ladled the juice on top of them. I checked every hour or so to make sure they weren’t getting dry. Used a knife and fork to open one up and slice out a tiny piece for tasting. Once done, served with rice. The meat was SOOO juicy and flavourful!! Highly recommended.

  34. Wish I had read all these comments first. . Chicken was overlooked and bland. Would not make it again.. I even added carrots then peas at the end.

  35. delicious, thanks for the recipe! I also made a gravy out of my leftover ‘broth’. How would I go about figuring out those points?

  36. I made this tonight for the first time. It was outstanding! I used Guinness and only cooked it for 6 1/2 hours on low (any longer and I think it would have been dry). That Guinness gravy idea is genius! Will try that next time! Also, hubby thought it might be good with a little lemon juice added in for a citrus kick. A+ from me!

  37. balooney2 says:

    To get the browning as in the picture above, you could take the chicken out while making the gravy or sides and place under the broiler for a couple minutes (remember to baste before or you will dry it out), just to brown the outside….

  38. I used Guinness (as suggested) NOT a good choice for us. Won’t be making this again. The chicken was fall apart tender, but the taste was way too bitter.

  39. Could this work with a mulled cider like woodchuck? I am gluten free so beer recipes are hard…

  40. I used Blue Moon Pale Ale, the seasonings from the recipe along with Mrs. Dash salt free table seasoning and some red pepper flakes and served it with sweet potatoe hash browns, so delicious. Thank you for the recipe.

  41. I cooked my chicken on low for 3 hours in my crock pot and it came out slightly dry. I recommend cooking on a low heat and checking the meat for readiness after 2 hrs. Certainly not a recipe I would leave unattended for 6 hrs while at work.

  42. This was pretty bland and the chicken was dry.. I cooked it at low and it was done within 3-4 hours– I then turned it down to warm because it would have been way over cooked. I even put a little extra seasoning and it was still bland :/ if I make it again, I will use thighs instead of breasts.

  43. This was horrible! My chicken turned into jerkey and wasn’t even a little bit edible. I may try it again with a shorter cooking time but I kind of doubt it. I followed the recipe to the letter and even used a very trustworthy crock pot so I’m not sure what happened but I did not have good results and ended up throwing the entire thing away.

  44. I’m just seeing this recipe. Is the picture really plain boneless, skinless chicken breasts? It looks like there is something else, eg, skin, onion, or something that makes up all those browned ‘bits’

    Recipe sounds very good, but someone mentioned they can’t see how the chicken can brown while seeping in beer. I’m wondering the same thing. Does the chicken, the way you gave the instructions, come out moist?

    • Great question! The browned bits are just the spices I coated the chicken with, which blackened when cooking. Other than that, yes, it is just plain, skinless boneless chicken breast. The long cook in the beer helped to keep in tender and moist.

  45. K=I made this last night!! Really good! Thank you so much for the recipe. I followed the recipe except I used thigh meat instead. Came out so moist and actually, it looked like the picture!! I think next time I make it, I am goign to try garlic salt too!

  46. goddess63 says:

    I tried this with boneless/skinless thighs and thought it was pretty good. I used a locally brewed dark ale since I didn’t have any Guinness on hand. I added some fresh rosemary and thyme as well and I cut the amount of oregano in half. I also added fresh carrots and frozen peas (carrots about halfway into the cooking and the peas the last 15 minutes). I thickened the gravy too, which really helps. But my chicken ended up shredded when it was all done, which was fine. This is definitely a keeper, though next time I’ll change it up by using beef or even lamb (yes, I know that changes the weight watchers points but I’m also going for flavor!). All in all this is a really nice recipe that’s incredibly easy to play with. :)

  47. Awesome chicken. I used Guinness as as suggested. It was a hit with my guests.

  48. This was crazy good! My 13 year old daughter had fourths! Thanks for sharing this awesome recipes with us. It will definitely be made again and again. :)

  49. I used a whole chicken. Easy and tasty. Makes wonderful left overs with the balance shredded and used or tacos with the corn relish.

  50. I made this last night and found it to be extremely dry, we couldn’t even finish eating it :(

  51. Does the chicken have a strong beer taste?

    • Mine didn’t, and I used Guinness, which is a strong beer. All the alcohol cooks off, so the remaining taste is beautifully mild.

  52. Tried this last night. I followed the recipe, with these exceptions: used Bud instead of Guiness (Bud was what I had on hand); added 1/2 C chopped onions and a chopped carrot; used chicken leg quarters instead of breasts. The texture of the chicken was good, and the aroma of this dish cooking all day was great! However, it tasted bland, and if I were going to make it again, I would follow the reader suggestion to add the spices towards the end of the cooking not the beginning. The crockpot cooking method also results in a lot of broth, and it would be good if the recipe had some way of converting that to a sauce and then incorporating the sauce into the final dish.

    • Came out bland? You used Bud, what did you expect…? Not trying to be rude, but I mean, really, it’s bizarre to think any American light lager is going to contribute much, if any, flavor.

  53. Jessabelle says:

    Has anyone tried this while a whole chicken?

    • I did, very tasty, delish!! except for the amount of grease from the skin, had to remove a lot of the fat next day, lots of gravy Made curry with leftovers.

      I did start with 2 chop onions, 2 celery 2 carrots
      Sher

  54. Made with thigh meat and recipe was to die for. Also added mushrooms and parsnips made very good flavor dusted the top with powdered chicken broth for an added kick! Five stars!!!….

  55. Made this for dinner tonight… I added some minced garlic (no garlic powder to be found when I went to get it). Plain old yuengling light for the beer, and some other spices. Cooked on low from 9-5, and since I knew it’d be in a while, I added a bit of chicken broth I had in the fridge. Thanks so much for the recipe, because wow is this tasty! Almost no effort on the front end, and a wonderful dinner when we all got home from work and afterschool activities! Yum & thanks!

  56. Never add herbs and/or spices to a crock pot until about an hour or so before the end of the cooking time.

    If you put them in before that the meal (any crock pot meal) will be bland.

  57. hongryhawg says:

    Beer left over from the 4th of July? I don’t even have beer left over from Columbus Day (yesterday).

    • Although I am a little late for this post, I thought…hmmm, I don’t even have beer left over on the 5th of July! Thanks @hongryhawg:disqus for the laugh this morning!

  58. Can I use something other than beer? I am allergic to alcohol. I don’t get to try many dishes because of this allergy. If someone can recommend something, maybe I can enjoy it, as well. Thank you! :)

  59. Ok, so I wouldn’t recommend this for a “cook while you’re at work” dish. I also wouldn’t recommend it iwth breast meat. Though my pot shut off at the prescribed time, I came home to dry chicken with a very strange texture. The flavor was ok, but, for chicken that basically braised (sat in liquid) for 8 hours, it was almost inedibly dry. I”m going to try it again with bone-in thighs and less cook time and see if that helps.

    • KatCurlee says:

      Yea, I had the same results. I think I’ll use bone-in meat next time. probably better. I’m sitting here eating super dry meat and feel like another failed crock pot chicken recipe has just gone down the drain… :(

    • My chicken was terribly dry as well… Had to choke it down. Very disappointed since it smelled so good cooking! Tossing this recipe!

      • It’s because 6 hours is way too long to cook any chicken in the crock pot.
        I’ve made so many crock pot recipes, and they all usually take 4 hours. So, your chicken was dry because it was overcooked.

  60. This is in the crockpot right now! I added a few spices and used Shiner Bock, our fave household beer. :) Can’t wait to see how it turns out. Love fix it and forget it meals on junior high football game nights.

  61. I made this this this morning and used coors light (it is all we had, haha) hope it is just as good as you all are saying. !!

  62. I made this in the crock pot and used frozen chicken breasts. I added another half a can of beer because it was on low for 10 hours and I was worried it would dry up. It was too much beer. I recommend only one can if you are using frozen. It was very good and I will definitely make it again, just with less beer!

  63. Was this in a 6 quart slow-cooker? If so, how much room was leftover for veggies then? I want to try & make this with maybe baby red potatoes or diced sweet potatoes (maybe even Yukon golds if small sized), baby carrots, celery, corn, & peas. I’m thinking maybe add the veggies in about 90 mins. prior to serving? Think that would be long enough? They’ll be canned peas & corn & the rest of the veggies would be fresh, not frozen.

    Thanks for sharing the recipe though. Sounds delicious :)

    • Yes, this was in a 6 quart slow cooker. There was plenty of room for veggies, but depending on how many you add, you may need to use some extra beer.

    • Choose a firm robust potato like whole or halved small red potatoes; they should hold up better with the longer cooking times.

  64. This looks delicious! If I half the recipe, do I cut the time down? I’m not the most experienced in the kitchen, so pardon the possibly very dumb question! :)

    • By a bit, but not too much. Just check the chicken, and as soon as it cooked through and gets to the point of falling apart, then it’s ready.

      • Thanks! I actually ended up getting three boneless/skinless breasts, but they were huge- total of 2.61 lbs! They were done after about 3 hrs 15 min on high, put them on low while I made sides. The gravy idea someone mentioned earlier was very good! I put about 1 1/2 Tbs of cornstarch, brought to a boil, then simmered for a few minutes, and poured it over the chicken and also the mashed taters. Delicious, thanks!

  65. Warning: possible dumb question ahead…..I want to make this tomorrow, but the chicken would most likely be in the crock for about 12 hours before dinner. Do you recommend then to throw it in frozen or will thawed be fine on low for 12 hours? As it might be in for that length of time, would you also recommend more beer to keep it moist or would 1 bottle still be sufficient?

    • GREAT question! I haven’t tried leaving it in that long myself, but I would def use some extra beer…maybe another half bottle. And I think using the frozen chicken would help a bit too. Let us know how it goes!!

  66. I liked the chicken, but the oregano was overpowering… next time I’m gonna experiment with the spices… I’m thinking rosemary instead of oregano. The bacon mashed potato side dish was a hit and sprinkling some cheddar was delish, but the corn salad is really more like salsa and we are gonna eat it with chips instead.

  67. What kinds of veggies could i put in here with out them getting mushy also could I cook potatoes right in there with the chicken like you do with a pot roast or will it make them taste funny??

  68. Mamichelle says:

    Do you start with thawed or frozen chicken breasts? I need to make for the weekend. Thanks!

  69. Taysha Riggs says:

    I made this with Sapporo and some leftover veggies that I threw in– YUMMY! So tender. Next time I’ll try the guiness :)

  70. Does the chicken need to be thawed before putting in the crockpot?

  71. I made this tonight with Newcastle (couldn’t find an individual can/bottle of Guinness) and it was delicious! Thanks for the awesome recipe :)

    • victoryman says:

      I also used Newcastle….double delicious. I added two Texas style sausages to the recipe for additional flavor and served the chicken with sliced sausage…..enjoyed by all.

  72. Ashton Christie says:

    My chicken was done in 3 hours. Some slight differences in what I did…1st chicken breast only had 3 were frozen, so started 1st hour on high then went to low setting. Is the fact that I had less chicken the reason for a faster cooking time…new to crock pot cooking. I have a 6 qt Revel crock pot if it matters.

  73. Becky Barnes SINGLER says:

    I made this for the family today and it was so yummy! I used Guiness (Guiness makes everything better) and the same seasonings in the recipe. When the chicken was done, I removed most of the “broth” and put it in a small sauce pan and thickened it up with a cornstarch slurry. Then I poured the “gravy” back over the chicken and kept it warm until we were ready to eat. Served it over mashed potatoes. Definitely will make this dish again. Thanks for sharing it!

    • laaloosh says:

      Mmmmmmm!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE the Guiness gravy idea!! Fantastic. Thanks so much for sharing. Me + Guinness = BFF.

      • Any idea of Points for the gravy?

        • Nikki Newberry says:

          If you add the corn starch that is just an extra 60 calories for 2 tablespoons, I figured out calories, not points because I don’t do weight watchers, I do 5:2, and it came out to 250 calories per serving using 10 skinless, but bone in, chicken thighs and a can of Guinness.

  74. Just discovered your site. Awesome recipes! Thank you so much. And thanks for including gluten free stuff. I am going to make this one with gluten free beer.

  75. How does the chicken get so nice and brown, as in the picture? Also, could you use boneless skinless thighs, and how much would that increase the point value? Thanks!

    • laaloosh says:

      The color of the chicken will depend on the kind of beer you use. I used Guinness, which is very dark. It was sooooo yummy! If you use thighs, the Points + value will probably increase by a Point or two.

      • Very disappointed with the recipe. My chicken looked had no color whatsoever…….looked nothing like the photo. How can it possibly brown while floating in beer? I also agree with another poster who said the amount of oregano was way to much. I ended up removing as much of it as I could from the chicken pieces and made chicken salad.

        • Pmil, I did exactly the same thing. Chicken salad that had bitter overtones.Even though I cut the oregano in half, then substituted other with half basil, oregano was still too overpowering. The picture looks so good, but all I got was dark brown boiled chicken breast. I used Sam Adams seasonal ale, “Old Fezziwig” and we have chicken salad all week. :(

  76. Tiny Coconut says:

    Since it’s in the closed crock pot…does the alcohol boil off, or is this something you need to be careful with kids/people who can’t have alcohol? (This is probably a VERY stupid question, but I’m asking it nonetheless.)

    • You don’t have to worry about giving it to kids, the alcohol with boil off. I cook with beer in my crockpot all the time.
