Chicken Cooked in Beer

Recipe by loveleesmile

This is really good. Sautéing the Chicken in beer makes for some moist chicken. Wish I could take credit, but the recipe comes from Food Network’s Iron Chef Morimoto.

Wonderful recipe! I did change a few things, I used red and green peppers. I also used skinless and boneless chicken breasts since that was what I had on hand. I only had 2 onions, so I added some dehydrated onion to the chicken while it was cooking. I also added some broccoli to the green peppers and onions since I had some that needed to be used. I used the entire can of beer and basically let the meat simmer until it was gone. I also put some mushrooms in with the chicken. The teriyaki sauce was just the most wonderful finishing touch! The beer makes for very succulent and moist chicken! This one is a keeper for sure, wonderful chicken!
