Root Beer Chicken

It's Saturday afternoon and when you live in a college town, that means football.  The Dragons are playing at home and the game is on now while the Bison are playing early evening.  Time for an easy meal which usually means the crock pot.  I put this together at around 8 this morning so it was ready to go in 6 hours.





Root Beer Chicken

3 chicken breasts (approximately 1 pound)
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
1/4 tsp ground red pepper flakes (optional but they add a nice heat)
1/2 cup root beer
1/2 cup bbq sauce

Place chicken breasts at the bottom of the crock pot.  Sprinkle seasonings evenly on top.  In a small bowl (or in your measuring cup if it's big enough) stir together the root beer and bbq sauce and pour into the crock pot.  Heat on medium for 6 hours.  Fork shred and serve on toasted buns.
