Poppy Seed Chicken

Back when I was in high school, one of my good friend’s mom always made this super delicious poppy seed chicken casserole. It was always super popular if we ate at her house, and then her mom started working at my school and they started making it for one of our lunches! This was pretty excited for us because honestly, this casserole was SOOO good.

So obviously now that I’m cooking for myself, I had to find a recipe for it! I’ve made it several times and it’s a hit!! I made it tonight for supper actually, but cut the size of all the ingredients down a little and made it in a 9×9 pan instead of 13×9. You can find the link for the recipe here:

Crockpot Beer Chicken

Beer Chicken!

Tonight I tried a new recipe called crockpot beer chicken. The house I’m currently living in has been without a functional over for over a month (I can’t bake so I’m dying) so I’ve had to get a little creative in order to have a hot meal. This particular recipe was super easy to make. Basically all I did was take 6 chicken legs and put them in my crockpot. I used legs because they’re my favorite, but the recipe said you could use breasts, thighs, or even a whole chicken! So after putting the legs into the crockpot, I poured a Busch Light over them. Then I seasoned them a little bit with salt, pepper, garlic powder, minced onions, chili powder, and basil. After cooking for about 3 and a half hours, these chicks were ready to be eaten. The meat was so moist and tender and the meat fell right off the bone! It was super easy to make and delicious. Next time, I think I’ll try marinading the chicken for a while before cooking it and using a different beer to give it some more flavor.

Let me know if you have any questions about this recipe! It was super yummy and I definitely recommend it!!
