The recipe description says it all - easy and delicious! I put the chicken and onions with the beer (Yeungling Lite) in the crockpot, set it on Low for 8 hours, and went to bed. Woke up, ended up adding the whole bottle of Hunt's original barbecue sauce (as directed) and ended up with a nice batch of pulled chicken for company. I made the coleslaw from my own recipe, though. We had a delightful meal with no fuss! What more could you ask for? A real keeper. Made for Spring PAC 2013.
