Beer Chicken

I got a wild hair yesterday and decided to create a dinner from things I had in the house. I had some frozen chicken breast and some Bass Pale Ale and thought with a few spices it might be good if cooked the two together in the crockpot.

(Note: I bought the Bass one day when the store was out of Dos Equis and was not able to finish a single bottle. It tasted like soy sauce to me…good for chicken right? Right!)

Anyway in the usual fashion (no measurements), I added the following items to the crock pot:

Chicken
1 Bottle of Bass
Some water
Chopped onion
A few cloves of garlic
Salt
Pepper
Chili Powder
Cumin
Paprika
A bit of sugar

Cooked it on low for about 8 hours, then made a roux (flour and butter in a sauce pan) and added the cooking liquid to make a sauce. I then shredded the chicken and added it into the sauce.

I served it laddled on top of crisp potato wedges. It got a thumbs up from the hubby and Manda. Not bad for a whim!
