Guinness Pulled Chicken - total time 5 minutes prep & 4 hours cook

Pretty sure this could not get any easier!  I came home for lunch the other day and threw all these ingredients in my slow cooker in about two minutes... went back to work and then came home and dinner was ready to eat!  I may have to do this every time I come home for lunch.  The chicken is so tender.  I think the bed of onions might be the trick though.  Maybe having the chicken lifted away from the pot makes it taste better.  Or maybe the onions are caramelized on the bottom.  Or maybe it is the mix of ingredients for the sauce.  Whatever it is, it is the perfect mix...

1 lb chicken
1 medium onion, sliced
.75 cup Guinness
.75 cup bbq sauce
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp red pepper flakes
salt and pepper

1.  Slice onions.  Toss onions into slow cooker.
2.  Place chicken in slow cooker on top of onions.  Mix Guinness, bbq sauce, and spices together in a small mixing bowl and pour over chicken.
3.  Cook for 4 hours on high or 6 hours on low.
4.  Shred chicken with forks (will basically fall apart) and toss back into crock pot to soak up the juices.  Serve on a bun, on top of salad, or by itself with some sides.



  1. Can I use any kind of beer? that's of 500 ml right

  2. Yes, you could use any beer. I enjoy the stout and BBQ sauce combination though. I believe 3/4 cup is about 175 ml (so you'll probably have some left over to drink with your sandwich!) :)
