Crockpot Chipotle Beer Braised Chicken

Here is a smoky and spicy (and easy) chicken recipe, made with of course, your Crockpot! This is a great week night meal that you can prepare in the morning and by the time you get off work, you have dinner already taken of! I like to eat the chicken with quinoa and guacamole. Also great with warm corn tortillas topped with sour cream or greek yogurt!

What you'll need:

4 raw boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1 tbsp olive oil

1 onion, diced

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 can (one whole can is usually 7.5 ounces) chipotle peppers
in adobo sauce. Roughly chop. 

1 bottle (12 ounces) of gluten free beer

Juice from 1 orange

1/2 cup salsa

1/2 tbsp oregano

salt to season


Heat oil on medium high heat in pan. Once hot, add onions, season with salt and cook till slightly browned, stirring occasionally. Add garlic and cook for another 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Put onions and garlic in crockpot. Add chicken and the rest of ingredients. Cook on low for 7 hours. Take chicken out and shred with a fork and then add back to pot to soak up juices. Serve and enjoy!
