Beer Chicken

I had a few cans of cheap lager lying in the cupboard for ages. Instead of letting them rot (or feeding it the neighbour's cat), I thought of using it to marinate some chickens.

I bought a big, fat chicken, chopped it into half. Marinated the chicken with beer, garlic, rosemary and black pepper.


Let the chicken enjoys the beer for 3-4 hours. Make sure it is drunk enough to cook it.



Then, pan fried the chicken, and sprinkled some salt on it before putting the chicken into the oven for 40 mins (~150 degree celcius):



Once it is cooked, remove the chicken, let it rest. In the mean time, use the juices left by the chicken, add in a bit of flour, the beer, and chicken stock. Simmer it till it thicken...


Here is the finished product:


Note:
Lager didn't give much taste to it. The gravy did have strong beer flavour. Strong flavoured beer such as ale, and stout will be a better choice.

* You might notice the excessive use of rosemary in this recipe. I bought a big bunch of it and I had no other means of using it (other than feeding it to the cat again).
