midnitecrow's Guiness Chicken.
Here's what you need...
Chicken - legs or thighs are good
It's so easy - this will be for four legs of chicken but the recipe is scalable and it's hard to do it wrong so make adjustments according to your own tastes.
Fry up your bacon (one small strip per chicken leg) in a big pan at a good high temperature, once it's cooking then throw the chicken and brown it up. While that's going throw in some medium sliced potatos (one per chicken leg should be good) and carrots (two or three, slice them as you like) and an onion. With all of that in there sprinkle on some savory (a tsp or two, according to how much you like) and throw in the bay leaf too. Try to brown the potatos a bit, the real aim is to get a nice texture on the chicken though.
Once you like the colour of the chicken (and this should take what? - ten minutes about) drain off the bacon grease as best you can. Then pour your can of guinness on there, bring the temperature high to start it boiling and then drop it down to a good simmer.
Now we're most boiling everything in the guinness to get it all cooked up and the veggies down to a nice consistancy. We'll let it go like that for a good while, like maybe twenty or thirty minutes.
While we wait on that we can make up some nice chocolate milk to go with our meal, put it in a mug and throw it in the fridge so it will be extra chilled when it's time to eat.
The beer really needs to cook down a while so it gels just right. It takes some time and your cat will likely become bored.
My wife made some nice veggies to go with our guinness chicken.
Sqaush, butternut - sice it up
Carrots - slice them up
Olive oil - she's generous with it
Rosemary - sprinkle a bunch on
Sea salt - "only a BIT!"
Throw it in the oven at 375 and cook it for 1 hour and maybe fifteen minutes, depends on the consistancy you prefer. Our comes out mushy-ish but sweet for something that's good for us.
Have your wife prepare them at the end because your busy doing the "man's work" (cooking the meat) and it gives you time to look at her ass.
Eventually the beer will boil down to a point where it looks like a glaze type gravy, or perhaps a gravy type glaze.
It looks like we may have spilled something on the wall, make the wife clean that later.
As I said, it's pretty easy to make and hard to make a mistake with. Best of all? It gives you a good excuse to buy a pack of guinness beer and you only need one for the cooking!
If you give it a try then let us know.
