Tequila Beer and Orange Chicken Thighs

Dinner (2274)      Chicken (692)      Southern Style (1)     
I don't drink and found a tequila beer in my boyfriend's car the other day. Instead of throwing it away because he's given up alcohol, I used it to make deliciously sticky chicken thighs. 1,2,3 tequila!

Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 1 hour
Makes: 2 servings

4 Chicken thighs
1 bottle Desperadoes tequila beer
2 Oranges/satsumas
5 Mint leaves
5 Thyme sprigs
Tbsp honey
Tbsp butter
Pinch black pepper
Cup of Brown rice (optional)

Required ingredients


Remove the skin from the chicken thighs and wash with lemon juice.

Roughly chop the onion and garlic.

Place the chicken in a deep saucepan with the a glug of olive oil and the thyme.

Cook on a medium heat for 10 minutes.

Add the onions and garlic to the pan and cook until the onions are clear.

Squeeze the segments out of their skins into the frying pan, add the pepper, mint, and cook for a further 5 minutes.

Pour the beer into the pan along with a pint of water.


Stir in the butter and honey, and cover with a lid and turn to a simmer for 30 minutes.

When the chicken is 'sticky' it is ready.

It will be fall-off-the-bone tender.

Remove the lower skin-coated boney bits of the chicken leg, for a more professional finish.

Either serve with rice.

Or serve with vegetables.

Sweet, sticky, and slightly alcoholic this meal is one for grown ups.
