Beer Marinated Grilled Chicken

by | May 11, 2015 | Main Course

Long time since I posted something. Had been busy throughout with the year ending work. Exploring Brazilian Cuisine this month… This Beer Marinated Grilled Chicken was a thrilling experience filled with excitement,suspense and drama ;)…Excitement because I was going to try something new… Had never combined Chicken and Beer together… Suspense because I was not sure about the outcome and the dancing of the flames on the chicken while grilling created the drama. An easy to make recipe…Tender grilled chicken with soft and subtle flavours filled with the aroma of Beer… A must try if you are as crazy as I am…
