Since living in Manhattan my motto seems to be, “I don’t have time for that.” This includes things like going to the doctor, making my own sun-dried tomatoes (sorry Mom, it’s not going to happen) and doing laundry (thanks, Alex!). It does not include blogging, making baked goods, or taunting our cat by trying to make her wear a box. It’s because of all of this that I have fallen even more in love with my slow cooker.
This recipe stemmed from one that uses chicken broth, Greek seasoning and garlic cloves. I decided to change it up and it worked wonderfully. Sure, if you’d like you can use the broth or any seasoning of your choice, really, but this pairing was particularly good. It was also what happened to be in my house.
1 1/2 pounds of chicken (thighs, legs, etc.)
1 tablespoon Old Bay seasoning
4 cloves of garlic, smashed
12 ounces of beer
Add the garlic and beer to your slow-cooker. Sprinkle the chicken with Old Bay and add it to the slow-cooker. If the beer covers the chicken it will not brown or be crispy, but will cook just fine. Set on high and cook for 4 hours or on low and cook for 6-8 hours.
