Boozy Honey-Jalapeño Chicken

I’ve been on a cooking with alcohol kick lately (Whiskey Steak, Tipsy Turkey Chili)  and this dish joins the ranks.  Simmering the chicken in a beer, honey and jalapeno concoction made it tender and flavorful.   I used jalapeños from a jar which cuts the heat a bit but feel free to go fresh and dial it up.  I served with a heaping side of salad greens dressed with a simple vinaigrette but this would also go great with my Jalapeño Cornbread.  

To buy:

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 pound chicken cutlets
  •  pepper and salt
  • 1 beer
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons hot pepper jelly
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 cup jalapeños

Honey-Beer Chicken: (serves 2)

    • heat a large skillet over medium heat and add butter to pan
    • sprinkle chicken evenly with pepper and salt
    • add chicken to pan and sauté 6 minutes on each side or until cooked
    • in a separate pot, add beer, soy sauce, jalapeños, honey and jelly and bring to a boil, then  simmer for 5-10 min
    • add beer mixture to pan with chicken and stir until chicken is coated 
    • spoon chicken onto a plate and top with the cooked jalapeños (might want to use a slotted spoon, i didn’t and you can see it was a little runny into our salad)
