    Beer Braised Chicken and Onions on the Grill

    Wed Mar 20, 2013 10:37 pm Groupie

    The only thing different, was I did the chicken on the grill first to brown (no marinade or buttermilk flour dredge); then, I added it to the onions and beer on the grill in another pan to simmer. So, I mixed the flour in with the broth to thicken - otherwise, I made the recipe the same. Served over buttered noodles (freezer stash); and, a side of lima beans. I have enough leftovers for another meal; the kitties even split one of the small thighs - and, 4 extra I can freeze for sandwiches later on.

    This is a very easy dish - beer, garlic, onion, chicken and a few seasonings. Nothing more. They can be served as is; or, over rice, noodles, baked potato, etc.

    I got a great deal on a huge pack 16 boneless skinless chicken thighs for $8. I couldn't pass it up. I froze some, and these I decided to cook.

    Cook once, eat lots more!

    I played around the color a bit more. A bit better.

    Zurie, even did the limas in a foil pouch; a little butter, s/p. NO clean up. The chicken gets a nice smoky flavor from the grill first before I put it in the aluminum tin; and, I set some wood chips in a foil pouch, so as the chicken cooks in the tin, it does get a bit of smoky flavor.

    Thx paymaster. Even though it has a beer; there is no oil, no cream, just onions, garlic, herbs, broth and beer. It is a great way, and something different to serve chicken. It ends up fall apart tender

    Like the "improved" photo, but like your description a lot!! Yummo! icon_biggrin.gif

    Oh, by the way, I disovered canned lima beans (imported) in my local (only!!!) supermarket, and bought several cans. DH loves it, when combined with slow-roasted meats or in a stew. Finding fresh limas is difficult.

    I grew them in our farmlet's garden a few seasons, but they take up an awful lot of space, for a very small harvest!

    I get frozen limas. Birds Eye. Canned are not bad. I really love limas.

    Saute 1 strip of bacon and 1 large shallot. Add limas and cook until heated through. Delish.

    The other way is to saute in evoo, a little s/p, red pepper flakes. Then add to a casserole dish with a little chicken broth; and top with bread crumbs and parm. Bake until the crumbs and brown and the broth is gone. 2 of my fave ways to make them. I truly love them just about any way.

    Not to impressive cooking but plated up looks fantastic!

    Thx and agreed. The chicken even though a light grill soaks up the broth and just simmers.

    I do make this skin on and it is much prettier; The skin get a nice crisp brown color; but then it gets soft in the sauce too; besides, extra fat which is not needed.

    Just one of those comfort food dishes. I can't say low fat, but with only 1 beer, veggies, and broth; it serves 4-6; it isn't too bad calorie wise; and you can always skip the noodles too. I just love the gravy

    Yep, Deb, remove the skin and then sometimes I add onions; or add a salad etc. Same flavor; less calories.
