I am used to cooking with wine. In fact, when I braise meats, I immediately grab a bottle of wine without missing a beat. This time, I am changing my choice of alcoholic beverage to my other favorite drink — beer.
One of the recipes my husband asked me to try when I was learning how to cook was chicken braised in beer. It is one of his favorite dishes that his mom used to cook. But she was a cook who rarely jotted down her recipes, and my husband's favorite version was eventually lost. It became my quest to recreate his favorite chicken braised in beer that he remembered from his childhood. This recipe was my second try with this dish, and it was my son who completely loved this version and told me it was one of the best chicken dishes he'd ever had. That is one of the best compliments I have ever received from him. This time, I am writing down this recipe.
The chicken comes out with a surprising full-bodied flavor, as it slowly absorbs the beer it is braised in. This is one of my son's favorite chicken dishes; maybe it will be yours too.
