A quick and easy dish that will impress. Tender chicken medallions (antibiotic/hormone-free chicken) are coated in a yummy sauce of toasted herbs, garlic, lager beer and butter. It's similar to a chicken scampi, but a bit more fun and "summery" because it uses beer instead of wine. Super sauce-y, serve over cooked brown rice (provided!) and we recommend that you have some bread around to soak up the juices. Add a salad and dinner's done. Stovetop.
Hands on time: 10-15 minutes
Cooking time: 10-15 minutes
Thaw prior to cooking for best results. Set rice aside to microwave later.
Empty flour mixture into a bowl. Set aside. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat and empty contents of the butter herb mix into skillet. Sauté until herbs are slightly browned, about 2-3 mins. Dredge the chicken in the flour mixture, coating both sides. Lay each piece of chicken flat in the pan and stir constantly until browned and cooked thoroughly (5-6 mins or 165F). Pour in beer, simmer 1-2 more minutes and serve over brown rice. This is a very saucy dish which goes perfectly with bread!
Brown Rice– Remove rice from baggie and place into a microwave safe bowl. Heat at 1 minute intervals until your desired heat level. (Rice is fully cooked)
