I got a wild hair yesterday and decided to create a dinner from things I had in the house. I had some frozen chicken breast and some Bass Pale Ale and thought with a few spices it might be good if cooked the two together in the crockpot.
(Note: I bought the Bass one day when the store was out of Dos Equis and was not able to finish a single bottle. It tasted like soy sauce to me…good for chicken right? Right!)
Anyway in the usual fashion (no measurements), I added the following items to the crock pot:
1 Bottle of Bass
A few cloves of garlic
A bit of sugar
Cooked it on low for about 8 hours, then made a roux (flour and butter in a sauce pan) and added the cooking liquid to make a sauce. I then shredded the chicken and added it into the sauce.
I served it laddled on top of crisp potato wedges. It got a thumbs up from the hubby and Manda. Not bad for a whim!
