Slow cookers are a wonderful thing. You can throw a bunch of delicious ingredients in, turn it on & walk away. When you come back you have a delicious, hot meal just waiting for you.
This beer chicken recipe is perfect for entertaining on Super Bowl Sunday. It takes 5 minutes to prep then the slow cooker does the rest of the work. The chicken gets so tender and stays nice & juicy. You can double or even triple the recipe (depending on how big your slow cooker is) and feed your favorite football fans.
