DIRECTIONS

  • In a ziplock bag, mix the flour, 1 tsp of the salt and the pepper.
  • Add the chicken pieces, seal the bag and shake up and down to coat the chicken.
  • Heat oil in a large, fairly deep frying pan.
  • Add chicken and cook on both sides until golden brown, about 15-20 minutes.
  • Remove chicken from the pan.
  • Lower the heat slightly and add the onion, garlic and pepper to the pan.
  • Sauté for a couple minutes, then add the carrots.
  • Cook for another couple minutes, then add the tomatoes and remaining salt, if needed.
  • Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Stir in the beer and potatoes.
  • Top with the chicken and bring to a boil.
  • Cover and let simmer over a low heat for 30 minutes.
  • Remove the cover and cook for 5-10 minutes, until the sauce has thickened slightly.
  • You can re-brown the chicken in a bit of oil in a second skillet, just before serving.
  • I find it needs this"touch up" especially if it still has the skin on.
  • Serve with your favourite green veggies.
