Crockpot Beer Chicken

Greetings from Antarctica, I mean Ohio.  It is freaking freezing cold outside! I can’t even stand being outside for 2 minutes with the dogs, my insides start shivering, seriously. Unfortunately, this has resulted in crazy puppies with cabin fever.  Dear God,  Please please let summer come sooner.

Crazy puppy eyes!

Crazy puppy eyes!

On a brighter note, it’s Restaurant Week here in Columbus! Woohoo!  This opportunity comes along 2 times every year and it is awesome! If you are from Columbus and have never participated, then this is your chance! Husband and I have used this as an opportunity to try out new restaurants in the area that we normally wouldn’t go to. I think this time around we are thinking of trying 101 Beer Kitchen or Giorgio’s. Yum!

Moving on to this awesome chicken recipe, it is so simple and so delicious!  I especially love it because it’s a quick crockpot recipe that allows you to use what you have, you can’t go wrong here! Don’t be nervous to add/take away spices based on what you already have.

Enjoy! 🙂

Ingredients: 

  • 2 pounds chicken (This time i used drumsticks, but I have also used boneless, skinless chicken breast)

  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

 

Instructions: 

1. Place all ingredients in the crock pot, and cook on high for 4-5 hrs, or low for 6-8 hrs.
