This is such an easy Portuguese meal to prepare but the taste is AMAZING. My kids absolutely love it, they oooh and aaahhh constantly while eating.
Give it a try, don't let the beer scare you off, you won't taste it when the chicken is ready.
So this is how I make mine:
1 chicken, cut up
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
salt and pepper
1 bottle of beer
2 cups of water
1/2 bottle of heavy whipping cream (8 oz)
In a large skillet, add a little bit of olive oil and the chicken. Cook for a few minutes until the chicken is browned on both sides.
Add the onions and the seasonings,
the beer and the water.
Simmer for 20 to 30 minutes until chicken is cooked through. Keep checking to make sure it doesn't dry out, add more water if needed.
When the chicken is done, add the whipping cream and cook for a minute or two until thickened. Serve with mashed potatoes, rice or fries.
