Expert Tips

  • Although chicken thighs produce the juiciest slow-cooker chicken for this recipe, you can swap them for your favorite boneless skinless chicken pieces, including chicken legs and breasts.
  • A light beer works best for this recipe, but feel free to use your favorite brew.
  • Serve chicken on top of rice, with steamed or roasted veggies on the side for a complete meal.
