  • 3lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 3/4 cup onion, chopped small
  • 3/4 cup red peppers, chopped small
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 12 ounces beer (I used Heineken)
  • 4 cups of thick bbq sauce – I use either Bacon BBQ Sauce or Sticky Honey BBQ Sauce


  1. Add onions, garlic and peppers down in the crockpot.
  2. Lay chicken on top.
  3. Sprinkle paprika, salt and pepper.
  4. Add beer and barbecue sauce.
  5. Cook on high for 4 hours or ~8 hours on low.
  6. After 4 (or 8) hours, take out the chicken, shred the chicken and put back into the crock put.
  7. Allow to sit for 20-30 minutes, uncovered, as the shredded meat will absorb the sauce.


Ideas for this:
– Serve on a bun with coleslaw or cheese
– nachos with shredded cheddar
– on a bbq pizza with bacon and onions
– a fork 🙂
