Recipe type: Chicken, Main, Sauce, Alcohol
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon canola or grapeseed oil
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, about 6 oz each
  • Fresh black pepper
  • Kosher salt or smoked salt
  • 2 fresh garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ cup high quality beer, preferably darker & richer in flavor
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 Japanese or Korean pepper, chopped or 1-3 teaspoons sriracha
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro or Thai basil
Instructions
  1. Heat oil in large pan with high sides on medium high heat. While pan is heating up whisk together beer, soy sauce, peppers or sriracha, & honey in a small bowl. If substituting dried herbs add them now as well. Set aside.
  2. Season chicken breast with salt & pepper on each side & when the oil is hot, add to pan carefully. Cook about 5-7 minutes on each side for a nice sear. Don't move it around too much or you won't get a nice color. Remove from pan & keep warm.
  3. In the same pan with chicken leftovers add your garlic. Cook until softened & lightly browned. Re-whisk your sauce if anything has settled & add to pan. Whisk to mix. Let thicken up a bit.
  4. Serve hot over chicken or add chicken back to the pan to really drench them.
