Recipe Box: Crockpot Beer Chicken

Do you ever have those moments when you write down your grocery list, but forget to include the key ingredients to a meal? And then you don't realize it until it's time to cook dinner, but you don't want to go back out because you have a doodle and she has already had to be in her crate for the entire day?

Don't put me back in the crate, mom!
Well, I had one of those days yesterday. I was going to make chicken chili when I realized I didn't have any sort of canned tomatoes in the pantry, AND I couldn't find the can of tomato paste I KNOW I had purchased the day before. Talk about D-U-M!

I had chicken to cook and a million possibilities, but there was only one possibility I was interested in: a crockpot recipe. I was exhausted (because the previous night I thought it would be cool to finish half a bottle of wine by myself), and I was not interested in any kind of labor-intensive recipe. I did a quick scroll through my Pinterest boards and rediscovered this magical recipe: crockpot beer chicken. 

It's basically the easiest thing in the world. You just need chicken, beer, and your choice of spices.

I opted for garlic powder, instead of mincing real garlic. Remember, we want to do as little work as possible.
 Then, you throw it all in the crocky-pot and that's that.

Sorry this picture isn't fancier. I was serious about exerting no effort.
Real simple and real delightful--that's my kind of  recipe!
