Beer Baked Chicken w/ Peppers ‘n Onions

 

 

Beer Baked Chicken with Peppers and Onions

  • 1 1/2 lbs Chicken ( I used breast tenders )
  • 1 c Beer of choice
  • 1 med Onion sliced
  • 1/2 c Bell peppers, sliced
  • 1/4 c Honey
  • 2 T Worcestershire
  • 1 t Garlic, crushd
  • 1 t Chili Powder
  • 1 t Turmeric
  • Pepper to taste

Lay Chicken out in a 9×13 baking dish.  Lay the slices of peppers and onions out over the chicken meat.  Sprinkle with garlic, chili powder, turmeric and pepper.  Pour beer and Worcestershire sauce over top of that. Drizzle with honey.  Bake at 325 degrees for 60-70 min.  We ate this over brown jasmine rice but it is delicious on its own or even atop a bed of spinach or lettuce.

Spicy Southern BBQ Chicken

This recipe I used to make years ago.  I came across the recipe recently and decided to give it a try using organic ingredients instead of  *cough* what I used to make it with. Here is what I did and it turned out quite nicely, definitely a repeater.

     Spicey Southern BBQ Chicken

  • 2 lbs Chicken pieces (I like to use strips of breast meat)
  • 1 med Onion, sliced
  • 1 c  Chicken broth
  • 2 T  Vinegar
  • 2 T  Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 T  Chili powder
  • 2-3 T  Honey, Maple syrup or other natural sweetener of your choice
  • 2 t  Hot pepper flakes
  • Black pepper to taste
  • dash or two of turmeric

Place chicken in a 9×13, then place onion slices over top of the chicken.  In separate bowl, combine remaining ingredients and stir well. Pour mixture over chicken and bake at 350 for 1 hour or until cooked thoroughly, basting with mixture occasionally.
