I read quite a few blogs about food, and really like to read recipes that people have invented (how do you do that?!) But I have never tried to recreate one of them until just recently. I was reading a blog by Thistle and Maize and came across a recipe for Honey Beer Chicken. I thought ‘That looks yummy, it’s easy to make and I have nearly all the stuff to make it!’ so after buying the things I didn’t have, I did make it! and here it is:
It was really tasty, and my family thought so too! We decided it was like a mix of teriyaki and chicken stew, so a sort of oriental stew. As you can see I served it with broccoli and mini jacket potatoes. It was also quick to make which was also a bonus. A few changes I made to the recipe was to use a bit of left over sliced onion instead of shallots, vegetable oil instead of canola oil (because I don’t know what that is!) I also used a honey flavoured beer, as I thought it would go with the honey in the mix:
Thanks Thistle and Maize! Has anyone else got a favourite cooking blog they can recommend?
