    Looks delicious and I love using the slowcooker but recipes like this make me nervous because my cooker will be on low for about 8 hours. (I plan on getting a new one with a timer eventually….) Would there be a way to adjust this so it would cook that long without burning? Would adding a few more ounces of beer fix that or is this something I should save for a weekend.

    You could try turning the slow cooker to high to see if it will cook faster. There are also slow cooker liners at the grocery store and that might help with the burning.

    I sure hope your Wednesday is MUCH better – maybe the cookie recipe will magically reappear!

    Yikes, sounds like a tough day. At least your awesome chicken could cheer you up – I’m going to save it for when I have a tough day, too 🙂

    Oh man, I totally feel you. I deleted a recipe’s pictures the other week right before I was going to post it during vacation–not fun. And yesterday, my site was down all day due to Comcast issues.

    Hope your Wednesday goes better!! 🙂

    I’m a huge fan of shiner beer for slow cooker recipes.

    Hi there I’ll be making this today- will it still be tasty if I use Budweiser or Miller Genuine Draft? Thanks!

    Both would work great for this recipe.

    I didn’t know you guys were thinking about building. You need to talk to my builder! He has been great to work with! Let me know if you want his info.

    Do you still taste the beer at all? Hate beer. If so could I use chicken stock and still get the good flavor?

    I don’t taste the beer and I would recommend and light beer. You could try substituting chicken stock but maybe do 6 ounces instead of 8 ounces of beer.

    I don’t remember the exact servings for this dish but it can definitely feed more than 8.
