Raspberry Beer Chicken Recipe

2012/12/10 by Varga László

Ingredients (4 servings):

  • 1kg chicken breasts
  • 150 g smoked bacon
  • a can – 1/2 l bottle of raspberry beer
  • 2 teaspoons hot paprika
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2-3 tablespoons butter
  • a few branches of fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • optionally – a few raspberries

Preparation method:

  1. Wash the chicken breast then pat them dry with kitchen paper towels.
  2. In a bowl mix together 250 ml raspberry beer, salt, hot paprika and lemon zest.  Add the chicken breasts, taking care to be covered fully by marinade and marinate for 2-3 hours, or best overnight.
  3. Remove chicken from marinade and discard marinade.
  4. Slice thinly the smoked bacon.
  5. Melt the butter in a frying pan and fry the chicken breasts till golden brown.
  6. Add to the frying pan the remainder raspberry, the bacon slices and the thyme. 
  7. Simmer on a medium heat for 15-20 minutes until the sauce thickens. Turn the chicken breasts so they get a nice glazing from the thickened juices.
  8. Optionally you can add a few raspberries bin the last minute of  simmering, but I did not have any so I left them out.
  9. Serve with still hot with potato croquettes and a chilled raspberry beer with a lemon wedge on the side.

    Oh my gosh! I have to make this raspberry beer chicken. Thanks for the recipe. I may pair it with a dessert from Morrow’s Nut House.
