This simple slow cooker chicken thighs recipe can be put together in less than 5 minutes using ingredients from your pantry.


  • 8 bone in chicken thighs
  • 6 oz. beer, any brand (about a half a bottle of beer)
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper


  1. Place the chicken thighs into the crockpot, pour the beer in, sprinkle spices on top.
  2. For thawed chicken, cook on low for 4-6 hours or high for 2-4 hours. If using frozen chicken, increase cooking time to 8-10 hours on low, or 4-6 hours on high.


To get crispy skin, simply place the chicken thighs onto a baking pan and broil for 2-3 minutes!

Use any spices your family enjoys to create a whole new meal.
