Chicken in Beer with Baked Cauliflower and Bacon

Chicken in Beer with Baked Cauliflower and Bacon

Posted 2017-12-16 by finyfollow

Chicken in beer sounds a bit odd, and as I don't like beer, I was rather sceptical about making this.

However I was pleased with the result which tasted nothing like beer by the time I added other things!

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 45 minutes
Serves: 3

For the chicken
About 2 tbsp olive oil
6 chicken drumsticks - I use no skin
Small shallot, chopped
½ can lager
½ tsp brown sugar
½ tsp sherry vinegar
Small bay leaf
½ tsp fresh rosemary
½ tsp thyme
About 55 g button mushrooms

For the cauliflower
¼ large cauliflower
2 sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled
1½ tbsp chives, chopped
Less than ¼ cup mayonnaise
Less than ¼ cup sour cream
About ½ cup cheese, grated
Mushrooms, sliced

For the chicken
  • Heat the oil and fry the chicken pieces until lightly browned.

  • Add the onnion and cook for a further minute.

  • Transfer the chicken to a plate and put the beer in the frying pan and bring to the boil.

  • Add the chicken back to the pan, and add the sugar, sherry vinegar, mushrooms and herbs, plus some salt and pepper to taste.

  • Bring this to the boil and cover and simmer gently for about 30 minutes.

  • I had too much liquid so took the lid off and cooked it a bit higher for another 10 or so minutes till the chicken was done.

  • For the cauliflower
  • Preheat the oven to about 185°/165° fan forced.

  • Boil the cauliflower for about 8 to 10 minutes, drain and let cool a bit.

  • Combine the sour cream, mayonnaise, half of the bacon, some of the chives, some of the cheese, mushrooms, and cauliflower, and mix well.

  • Place this mixture into a greased baking dish and top with the remainining cheese and bacon.

  • Bake for about 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Top with the remaining chives.

  • Put the cauliflower bake on the plates.

  • Add the chicken and serve.
