Chicken in Beer Sauce with Mushrooms, Rice and Red Cabbage Salad

What mushrooms to pick

In this recipe it’s absolutely your choice. You can choose any type of mushroom you like and you can even mix them to make the taste more intense. For example chanterelle mushrooms would taste great in this recipe.

Be careful in the beginning of cooking

You don’t want to burn the chicken or onions in the beginning, because beer is a little bit bitter and together with burned onions the bitterness would be too strong. So, if you see the ingredients start burning before they get the right colour, add a little bit of water and let it cook for about a minute before browning the meat and other ingredients again.

What side dish is the best?

This recipe calls for rice, but if you want to try mashed potatoes, roasted potatoes, French fries or just a baguette / sourdough bread, be sure it will taste amazing!

4 boneless chicken legs
