The Beer Lime Bird Equation

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Jenny H.

This tarty chicken recipe has a very unique taste and is the only way I can get rid of those half empty bottles of beer my husband "forgets about" in the refrigerator.

I had a bunch of old beer to use up and not much else in the house. I was a bit worried about how this would come out while it was cooking because this was pretty watery for a long time. It took quite a while to eventually get a glaze, but even then it was pretty thin. My boyfriend really enjoyed the end result. The beer and lime flavors were well taken up by the chicken. That being said, I think you would have to really, really like the taste of beer, like my boyfriend does, in order to be able to enjoy this dish. Thanks for posting.

  4. Do not freak out, sometimes it takes awhile for this to happen.
