Chicken Drumsticks in Beer Sauce
Serves: 3
  • 6 chicken drumsticks
  • 5 garlic cloves
  • ½ litre of black beer
  • 5 tablespoons of olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoons of salt
  • ¼ teaspoons of freshly ground black pepper
  1. Get a knife and make a couple of cuts in the chicken drumsticks on both sides until you hit the bone. By doing this you will get the meat tender and evenly cooked.
  2. Season your chicken with the salt and pepper. Take a plastic food bag and put the chicken in it. Smash the garlic cloves in the bag and pour 3 tablespoons of olive oil in with the rest. Mix everything up inside the bag and leave it in the fridge for a couple of hours so that the flavors can combine.
  3. Get the meat out of the fridge and let it at room temperature for about 10 minutes. After that, heat the remaining olive oil in a non-stick pan and put in the drumsticks. Pour that beautiful juice that's in the bag on the chicken and fry the pieces on both sides until they get a crust.
  4. Pour the beer slowly in the pan and let it all boil down on a small fire. If the drumsticks aren't completely covered with beer turn them once in a while so they cook evenly. When the sauce gets thick your chicken is ready to be served.
  5. Serve with something simple, like mashed potatoes or a salad. To spice things up a little, finely slice some hot chili peppers and garnish the dish. Bon appetit!
If you feel this quantities don't suit your taste alter them in any way you like.
