Recipe: Michael's Marvelous Chicken!

Hi everybody! Here's a yummy recipe for chicken I created! It's based on French/European style recipes for Chicken.

Michael's Marvelous Chicken:

1 large onion
1 bell pepper
6 dried apricots or jujubes
1 cup light wheat beer
1 cup water
1 tbsp thyme
1 cup butter
4 medium-sized pieces of chicken

Remove the skin from the onion, cut off the top and bottom and then cut the onion in half. Cut the bell pepper into strips. Take the pits out of the jujubes if necessary and put the onion, peppers and jujubes into a medium-sized pot. Put ½ cup of wheat beer, ½ cup of water, ½ cup of un-melted butter and the whole tablespoon of thyme into the pot. Add salt to taste. Cover and cook on medium heat until the onion starts to get translucent.

The broth is ready for the chicken!

Meanwhile, remove the chicken skin, if necessary, and rub the raw chicken with pepper. Cook the chicken in butter and salt until it is browned on all sides and nearly cooked through.

The chicken should look something like this when it is ready to be added to the pot.

Put the Chicken into the pot and add the rest of the water, beer and butter. Add additional salt, pepper and thyme as necessary and cook for approximately 20 minutes until the broth is brown and beginning to thicken slightly. Taste and add more salt/pepper/thyme as needed. Let cool for a few minutes and serve on a slightly concave plate that will hold the sauce.

It smells delicious!

It tastes great with rice or potatoes!
