As the weather starts to become a bit colder outside, you’re going to need some delicious and rustic dishes that are going to warm you and your family up from the inside out. Let’s start with these Beer Braised Chicken thighs that can be made in your Dutch oven!
I hope you had a wonderful Labor Day and as good of summer as you could during this crazy pandemic. Many of you, like us, have not been able to do much or have a vacation this year just to remain safe and have minimum exposure as much as possible. Even though the year is in its last months (thank goodness) that is good news for me because I am a huge lover of Fall. Yep! Bring on the knee length boots, Halloween parties, Pumpkin recipes and patches, Hocus Pocus, and hearty dishes made in a Dutch oven because this is the season that I wait 9 months for every year.
What beer do I choose to braise the chicken?
When braising this chicken in beer, you want to pick a dark lager beer. I picked a cheap beer because I don’t know any better. The beer I chose was Fosters Lager Beer. I wouldn’t go as dark as Guinness, but definitely pick something that is favorable for cooking and isn’t a “lite” beer. That beer combined with the other flavors in the pot is going to give this dish an insane amount of flavor that you won’t believe.
Overall, be sure to put this recipe for Beer-Braised Chicken Thighs on your Fall menu and watch your family swoon over this dish and ask for it year after year.Print
