Sundays are Football Sundays in our house!
It’s great to come home from church, put dinner in the slow cooker, then sit back and watch some football!
Oh, I probably should have said…sit back, open a beer and watch some football!
The Chicken Famers teamed up with Rickard’s this month!
I was sent a tasters pack of Rickard’s beers: White, Red, Blond and Dark.
Rickard’s website taught me how to pair beers with some of my favourite foods!
They also have some amazing recipes!
I got a little creative with their Beer Can Chicken recipe and decided to do something similar in my slow cooker.
- 1 whole chicken (about 4 lbs)
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp parsley
- 1 tsp basil
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1⁄2 can of your favourite Rickard’s® (I probably used 3/4 of the bottle tho)
I mixed up the ingredients for the rub, rubbed it all over the bird and placed it in the slow cooker.
Very carefully, I poured the beer in the slow cooker making sure I didn’t get any on the bird.
I put the meat thermometer in, put the lid on and set it on high.
See you in a few hours birdy!
Once the internal temperature of the chicken reached 165 degrees, she was done! It took about 3 hours on high. I don’t like cooking by time alone because the internal temperature for the meat is a much safer way to know that it is correct.
I had to cut it very carefully as it was falling off the bone!
We had it with just asparagus, but this Asparagus & Chicken Salad with Sesame Ginger Dressing would be very yummy with it as well!
