Recipe for :

Solo Chicken Breast Poached in Beer
 

This is another recipe from Bill Hilbrich from Saint Cloud, Minnesota. Bill says that if you have any questions feel free to email him - click here or if you would like to know a little bit more about Bill have a look at his Bio page - click here.

Bill says: "This solo meal provides meat, vegetable, and pasta in one dish. The sourness of the beer is matched with the sweetness of the onion and the saltiness of the olives".

Ingredients

1 boneless skinless chicken breast
1/2 cup finely sliced onions
1/2 cup diced Spanish salad olives
1 cup dried pasta -- I like rotini
1 (12-ounce) can warm beer
salt and pepper

Method
  • Bring 2 quarts of salted water to a boil, and start heating a 8 inch cast iron frying pan or one with a non stick surface. The size is important to accommodate the poaching liquid.
  • Place a thawed chicken breast in the pre-heated pan and sear each side for 2 minutes.
  • Add warm beer and poach the chicken uncovered for 15 minutes.
  • After the chicken has been poaching for 8 minutes, add the dried pasta to the boiling water.
  • After the chicken has cooked for another 8 minutes, remove the chicken and add the onion to the poaching water.
  • Dice the chicken, return it to the frying pan, drain the pasta, add it to the frying pan, and add the diced olives.
  • Cook mixture for another 2 minutes and serve.
  • Salt and pepper to taste.
