BBQ Beer Braised Chicken & Carrots
Before you start, wash all surfaces and your hands with soap and warm water, and remember to wash your hands, utensils and cutting boards after they touch raw meat or eggs. Avoid cross-contamination by using a different cutting board for your meat and other ingredients. Make sure you’re cooking to safe temperatures and chilling any leftovers within two hours.

Pull any skin from chicken. Slice legs from thighs if using. Turn slow cooker to low or high depending on how long you want to cook it. In the slow cooker bowl; stir barbecue sauce with beer, chipotle, thyme and rosemary. Add chicken and carrots and stir to evenly coat. Push pieces into sauce as much as possible.
Cover and cook for 2 to 2½ hours on high or 4 hours on low. Cooking time depends on the size of chicken pieces. They should reach an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C). Serve beside sugar snap or green peas and spoon the sauce over mashed potatoes or rice. A sprinkle of fresh parsley or basil is a nice touch.
