Fall Recipe: Garlic Orange Beer Chicken
Well doesn't this sound delicious? It is! Garlic Orange Beer Chicken in the crock-pot even.
bottle (12 oz) beer ( I used Cold Smoke)
can (12 oz) frozen orange juice concentrate (not thawed)
teaspoons finely chopped garlic
pieces (2 1/2 to 3 lbs) boneless skinless chicken thighs ( I chose to use breasts)
teaspoons poultry seasoning
Salt, to taste
Chopped fresh parsley and orange slices.
Mushrooms, bread crumbs, Serrano peppers and butter.
Betty Crocker has the recipe and it was much better then I expected it to be.
- 1 In 6-quart slow cooker, mix beer, frozen orange juice concentrate and garlic.
- 2 Place chicken thighs in single layer on top. Sprinkle tops of chicken thighs with poultry seasoning and salt.
- 3 Cover and cook on Low heat setting 6 to 8 hours or until or until juice of chicken is clear when thickest part is cut (at least 165° F). Serve topped with chopped fresh parsley and orange slices.
Afterwords while I was cooking the rice I decided to try to bake it a bit to make the top crispy, added some bread crumbs, mushrooms and Serrano peppers and baked it at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes. Careful not to dry it out ( which is where the butter comes into help)
Add Orange slice and a spritz od it on the chicken, rice and parsley as a garnish. Nom nom nom
