[Recipe] A New Use of Old Habits

I am a recovered Alcoholic. My Husband is, too. Every now and then, though, we still like to have a Beer or a Shot or two. However, because of our histories we’ve always been very careful about how much Alcohol we keep in the house at any given time. The problem is that you often can’t buy just single products when you have that itch… So what do you do with the leftovers when the itch is getting a little too itchy, but you don’t want to waste your money?

Thankfully, the practice of cooking with Alcohol has a long history… And with a self proclaimed “Kitchen Goddess” in residence, it’s not very hard to move the product fast when the need arises. This has lead to everything from Guinness and Oat, and Lemon-Pepper and Carona Bread, to Tecate Chicken over the years- and each one of them has been just as delicious as the next.

Tecate Chicken

  • 1 12oz glass bottle of 6pt Tecate beer
  • 6 Chicken Drumsticks
  • 1 tbp Italian Seasoning
  • 2 tsp Garlic and Herb Salt
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper
  • 4 garlic cloves sliced

Directions: Place all ingredients into a plastic bag and place in fridge. Allow chicken to marinate for 5 hours or longer.

To cook, Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Remove both the chicken and marinade liquid into a glass backing dish of appropriate size and bake until chicken is cooked through.

Remove, and serve with your choice of sides. Personally, I like to use Flour to turn the Marinade and Drippings into a Gravy, and serve it over Mashed Potatoes.
