Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 3 hours on high heat or 6 hours on low heat


6 (4 oz each) chicken breasts, boneless, skinless (if breasts are larger, cut in half)

2 cups baby carrots, whole

2 cups celery, sliced into large chunks

1 cup onions, chopped

⅓ cup ketchup

1 package Lipton Onion soup mix (dry mix)

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 (12 oz) bottle or can of your favorite light beer, white wine or reduced-sodium chicken broth


1. Place all ingredients in the crock-pot except the beer. Pour beer all over the top of ingredients. Cover and cook on high heat for 3 hours or low heat for about 6 hours. The cook time can vary based on your crock-pot.

2. To serve: Place 1 chicken breast on each plate and add about ½ cup vegetables and sauce.
