I am thoroughly enjoying this brisk and sunny fall day. I have a crock pot full of homemade spagetti sauce simmering away, a sleepy puppy on my lap, and a candle burning that smells like Christmas. I’ve been feeling really good lately due to my pre-wedding work out routine and the fact that I have been trying to eat a little better! I made this delicious Crock Pot Beer Chicken last night and it was killer! Not only does it taste amazing but it’s only 143 calories per serving (one breast). It’s from a Weight Watcher’s recipe blog and I was blown away by how moist and scrumptious this chicken was without all the calories. The site says it’s only 3 points, if you speak WW points. I prepared it with rice and corn and my fiance and I ate it all up. I’m not really beer drinker but I love the way food tastes when cooked with beer. So here is a way to enjoy a brew without the guilt!
2lbs skinless, boneless chicken breasts (I used 8 breasts, 4oz ea)
1 bottle or can of your favorite beer (I used Guinness)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp black pepper
Place all ingredients in the crock pot, and cook on high for 4-5 hrs, or low for 6-8 hours. Feel free to change out the spices and herbs and use whatever you’d like.
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 6 hours
