Beer Chicken Chinese Recipe
Beer chicken – not very traditional but popular nonetheless
If you enjoy a nice hot curry and a beer to wash it down then this is the ideal dish for you since it combines both the spice and the beer. It’s usually pretty hot, but if you don’t like hot food then it’s equally delicious without chilli. It’s all down to personal taste.
You’ll need chicken, dried chilli, fresh ginger, garlic, spring onion, sugar, salt, soy sauce, cornflour and beer.
Marinate the chicken (in garlic, a tsp of cornflour, soy and a dash of beer).
Chop the garlic, chillis and spring onion small and the ginger into big slices so it’s easy to pick out later. Throw these into a little oil and heat until they begin to cook, then add the chicken to stir-fry.
Next add the soy sauce and a dash of sugar. After this, when any liquid has evaporated, add the salt, and then pour the beer on top (about 200ml will do) and heat it until the beer has also evaporated. You’re done!
You should have a nice spicy colourful stir fried chicken that tastes of beer. Delicious. Definitely something to eat with rice, would probably go down well on damp winter evenings.
