Get Me a Beer Woman!

Haha! Happy Friday! So I am sure most of you read yesterday about my beer dilemma! In case you missed it, Keith wanted me to buy him a 6 pack of Bud Light for the Superbowl even though neither of us drink. Turns out even the Superbowl doesn’t turn us into drinkers. He managed to down ONE! So I had 5 left! In an effort to not make my neighbors happy by donating them…haha…I used 2 bottles in the following recipe for dinner last night:


  • 24 oz beer (2 bottles) of your choice
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp curry powder
  • 4-5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 large onion, julienned
  • small bag of baby carrots
  • 4 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 4-6 boneless skinless chicken thighs or breasts

Place onion, carrot, garlic, spices and olive oil in a tupperwareย container. Shake well and marinade overnight.

In the morning, dump the marinated veggies into bottom of the crockpot. Place chicken on top of veggies. Pour beer over the chicken until covered.

Cook on LOW for 8 hours.

  1. I freakin’ love beer can chicken! It is so moist and juicy!!!

  2. What an awesome idea… I love the idea of marinating the veggies… Sometimes it’s hard to get the veggies to taste as good as the chicken ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I’m SUPER excited it’s FRIDAY!!!

  4. Gotta say that’s a creative way to use up beer. Nicely done. Now enjoy the heck out of your Friday!

  5. My husband would LOVE tihs dish ๐Ÿ™‚

    Happy Friday!

  6. Beer chicken is soooo good! I like to marinate my fajita meat in beer ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. thats a great idea! i’m not a beer drinker and we have a ton of beer in our fridge leftover from visitors….now i have a recipe to use it up!

  8. We always have a ton of beer left over. I usually just stick it in the fridge until my husband randomly feels like a bottle. But I think he’d totally be behind making this. Sounds great!

  9. mmm, beer chicken.

    And omg, I am soooooooooo excited that it is Friday! Any big plans for you this weekend?

  10. I hate the taste of beer, but this recipe has me curious…

  11. That recipe looks great!! Happy Friday!

  12. Oh my that chicken looks good, totally something my husband would eat. Do you think you could leave out the curry powder? Or substitute something else? He’s not a big fan of that flavor.

    Way to go for not drinking the other 5 beers, too. I was never a beer drinker until after I had a baby. For some reason, now I have cravings for it every once in a while. So strange.

    • You could probably leave out the curry flavor….I didn’t even tell my husband that curry powder was in it and he didn’t even know! (He isn’t a big curry lover either)

  13. You leave me the sweetest comments, seriously. They always make me smile.

    And thanks for the recipe. We always have random beer that hangs around forever too. We don’t drink much, but will buy it if we’re having people over. I’ve started sending it home with the friends, but this is a great alternative.

  14. I used to love beer can chicken and haven’t had it in ages.

    I am so excited it is Friday!! Doing the happy dance for sure!

  15. um, i’m SO excited that it’s friday…really can’t wait for the weekend to finally be here!

    i love the beer story…Nate and I did something similar a long time ago ๐Ÿ™‚ you gotta try some GOOD BEER though…microbrews are what it’s all about!

  16. oh my gosh i bet that meal was soo good! i love anything on top of brown rice! yumm!

  17. TGIF! Ill be sleepin and studyin this weekend, ow ow.

  18. I’m super excited about Friday (even though I have to work at an event tonight) and I get Monday off!

    Also, I fogot to give you a beer recipe yesterday-this is also chicken and also in the crockpot. I made it for Valentines day one year–it’s my husbands favorite meal.

    In the crock place chicken
    on top of chicken add cut up onion (i usualy use 1/2 an onion)
    in a separate bowl mix 1 cup beer and 1 cup bbq sauce-pour combined sauce over onions and chicken.

    Cook on low or high until finished.

  19. Brilliant! I always forget that you can make stuff like this in the crockpot. I mostly just use mine for soups.

    Thanks for the shout out!

    I bet your leftover chicken would make a really great sandwich!

  20. So happy its Friday – and I am taking Monday off so a three day weekend! ๐Ÿ˜€

    And my husband is okay bringing party pizza Friday back – can’t wait to get home and make pizza!

    Happy Friday Kelly!

  21. I WISH I loved running 10% as much as you do. Absolutely amazing! Happy Friday Kelly.

  22. I love cooking with beer! I made a yummy chili recipe awhile back that included 12oz of beer ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. That’s a great way to use leftover beer. I mean, not that we usually have leftover beer in my house, but in theory, that’s what we’d do with it.
