Too cold to grill outside?  This recipe for Slow Cooker Beer Chicken delivers a very moist and flavorful bird! (Inspired from the classic grilled recipe: Beer Can Chicken)

  1. Grease inside of large crock with olive oil.
  2. Stir butter and 1/2 the ranch dressing mix together in a bowl until completely combined.
  3. Carefully loosen each side of the skin of the chicken breast and spread the butter-ranch mixture under the skin. Transfer chicken, skin-side up, to crock.
  4. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 ranch dressing mix over chicken. Next, lay bacon strips evenly across bird.
  5. Pour beer around edges of chicken.
  6. Cover and crock on LOW 6-8 hours, or until chicken is tender.

NOTE: For added browning, place in an baking dish and broil for a few minutes!

Happy Crocking!
