Preparation 5 Cook Time 4-80 Serves 6     adjust servings

Make beer can chicken, without the beer! This easy slow cooker recipe turns out a bowl of tender, savory-sweet shredded meat. Perfect for piling on top of a toasted burger, easy enough to enjoy anytime!


  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 8 ounces beer
  • 3 cups barbecue sauce
  • 6 hamburger buns, toasted


Place chicken in a 4-5 quart slow cooker. With a Gook Cook whisk, stir together beer and barbecue sauce. Set aside 1 cup of sauce, pour remaining sauce over chicken. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours (or on high for 3-4 hours). Shred chicken in the slow cooker using two forks. Stir well to coat with the juices in the slow cooker. Serve shredded chicken on top of toasted buns. Place the 1 cup of reserved sauce in a microwave-safe container. Heat in the microwave on high until boiling, about 2-3 minutes on high. Drizzle over shredded chicken. Serve and enjoy!
