Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Roast from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach

Okay, okay, we know. Pot roast is technically a beef recipe, but we couldn’t help it. We love how succulent and tender beef becomes when it’s cooked for hours in a slow cooker, so we just had to try it with chicken. It works beautifully, and in the end, you get a perfectly cooked, juicy chicken and delicious roasted veggies.

For this recipe, we recommend using a slow cooker with temperature probe, such as the Set & Forget® 6 Qt. Programmable Slow Cooker, so you’ll be sure not to overcook the chicken.

For the cook who is busy all day but wants a home-cooked dinner at night, a slow cooker is the answer. And with the Set & Forget® Programmable Slow Cooker, technology takes a big leap forward from the outdated slow cookers found in yesterday’s kitchens.



Pot roast is a perennial classic and a staple in many homes, especially this time of year. A slow cooker makes easy work of this low-n-slow one-pot dish. Simply put everything in the slow cooker in the morning, so when you get home in the evening, dinner is ready.

To make this dish, simply pick a seasonal pumpkin beer (we used one from Hardywood Park Craft Brewery, a local favorite) and toss it in the crock with sweet potatoes, onions and a beef roast. The combination of pumpkin pie spice and pumpkin beer will add tons of fall flavor to your meal.

From Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach Oktoberfest Pot Roast is the perfect pot roast for fall/autumn weather! From Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeachThe colors, the flavors and the aroma of this dish are all about autumn. We love the addition of sweet potatoes to a pot roast because it changes up the standard veggie side of potatoes and carrots. And don’t worry, the alcohol cooks off in the cooking process, so this beer-braised pot roast is good for the whole family.

1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup beef stock
1 cup pumpkin-spiced seasonal beer
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
3 large sweet potatoes, peeled, cut in 2-inch chunks

Add onions and garlic to cookware. Cook until just beginning to soften, about 3 minutes.
Sprinkle beef with salt and pepper. Place beef on top of onions and garlic.
In a small bowl, combine flour and beef stock. Add beer and pumpkin pie spice. Pour around beef in cookware.
Cover and place cookware on slow cooker base. Cook on HIGH for 2 to 2 1/2 hours or on LOW for 4 to 4 1/2 hours. Add sweet potatoes to cookware, arranging around beef. Cover and cook an additional 2 to 2 1/2 hours on HIGH, or 4 to 4 1/2 hours on LOW.
Notes
If using a slow cooker without a stovetop-safe crock, brown meat and cook onions and garlic in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Transfer ingredients to slow cooker crock and cook as directed.
Sweet potatoes can be added at the beginning of cooking time, but will be very soft.
Carrots, potatoes or other root vegetables may be substituted for sweet potatoes.
