Boston Lager® Bistro Chicken


  1. Heat oil in a large stockpot.
  2. Season chicken with salt and pepper and sear for 8 to 10 minutes, or until browned on all sides.
  3. Transfer chicken to a platter and add bacon to pot.
  4. Saute bacon until fat has rendered, then add onion, carrots, and garlic.
  5. Saute 5 more minutes, or until vegetables begin to soften, making sure to scrape brown bits off the bottom of the pan.
  6. Add mushrooms, broth, beer, and thyme. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium and add chicken back to pot.
  7. Cover and simmer for 1 hour. Uncover and cook at a rapid simmer for 20 minutes, or until both reduces and thickens.
  8. Discard thyme and serve over rice.
