|Lewis & Robin 10-10-10|
My Good sister Robin got married in October, to a wonderful man, Lewis. They got married in Jamaica. We weren't able to attend, but the video showed a fabulous celebration of happiness and love! They came for a visit before Thanksgiving. We had a very nice conversation about food, and cooking. He gave me his recipe for chicken marinated in beer. He told me that his Dad loves it, and it's easy to make. OK, I'm sold. What's the recipe? Easy is right. I added my own touches, but I don't think Lewis will mind.
Baked Nutmeg Beer Chicken:
Large can of beer (I used Fosters, it is a HUGE can)
1 package chicken thighs
1 package chicken drumsticks (or what ever chicken you want to use)
Flavored Sea Salt
1 1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tbsp Poultry Seasoning
1 large onion cut into pieces
4 Celery stalks, cut into pieces
Layer the onion, celery and chicken in a baking dish
Season each layer with the salt, pepper, nutmeg and poultry seasoning
Pour in the beer. Do not dump over chicken as this will take the seasoning off, gently pour in from the sides until covered.
Cover and marinated for 1/2 hour or longer for more flavor, in the fridge
Bake for one hour in a 350 oven, until juices run clear
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp flour
liquid from the baked chicken
2 tsp poultry seasoning
salt and pepper
Add the butter to a skillet and melt, then add the flour and lightly brown
Add salt and pepper, and then one spoonful at a time add the liquid until you get the consistency you want. Then add the poultry seasoning and stir.
Spoon over chicken, or if you made rice or pasta, spoon over that. It's very good
We ate leftover sweet potatoes and Cranberry/blueberry sauce. My little boy gobbled the chicken up. No need to worry about "getting drunk", because the cooking process cooks out all the alcohol. Just leaving a delicious flavor.
