Roast chicken with beer and super sauce
A food of high nutritional value

A delicious creation, very tasty and at the same time of high nutritional value, since we combine the chicken with lettuce salad. Chicken is very rich in protein, vitamin B and iron. It has very few calories, just 165 per 100 g. chicken, without the skin.

Effie prepared for us the old German recipe with the beer, but accompanied it with an amazing sauce, so cool and fragrant that she put in Mykonian fennel. If you can’t find fennel in the grocery store then you can use dill. Because it is time we pay a little more attention to our diet we did not combine it with potatoes but with a rich lettuce salad. Of course, you can also add potatoes that are just as delicious, as they will be baked in the chicken sauce with beer.

Lettuce is a valuable vegetable, of very low caloric value, so it is suitable for a careful diet. It is worth mentioning that the ancient Greeks and Romans appreciated it very much for its healing properties, from the 5th century BC. It has long been considered in China to bring good fortune and is definitely served on birthdays and holidays.

The nutritional value of lettuce is important as it is an excellent source of vitamins A, C, E, K. Lettuce is a very good source of fiber and a good source of potassium, manganese, chromium. It is very low in calories so it is suitable for a careful diet. An important advantage is its rich content of vitamin C with the simultaneous presence of β-carotene making it a vital vegetable for cholesterol metabolism and thus avoiding the formation of atherosclerotic plaques.

So our Efi prepared chicken for us today in her own unique way. I’ve tried it and it was wonderful.

The recipe is yours.

 

Roast chicken with beer and super sauce

By Efi Markozanes, Mykonos

Steps

1
Done

We take care to remove the lungs and maybe some entrails that are stuck to the sides of the chicken, so that the chicken does not have a heavy smell.

2
Done

We rinse it with warm water inside and out and dab it with a towel to dry.

3
Done

We put all the ingredients for the spice blend in a bowl and mix until they are homogenous.

4
Done

We brush the chicken all around with the olive oil on the outside and then on the inside.

5
Done

We sprinkle the whole chicken with the spices first on the outside and then on the inside. If we want, we add a little more oregano on top.

6
Done

We tie the legs and wings with cooking twine to roast it better.

7
Done

We put an oven rack on the baking sheet and the chicken on top.

8
Done
1 hour and 35 minutes

We pour half the beer over it and bake in a well preheated oven at 170 - 180o C for 1 hour and 35 minutes.

9
Done

In the middle of the baking process, we add the rest of the beer, so that the chicken has the liquid it needs. If we also bake potatoes in the baking pan then we also pour hot water to bake them.

10
Done

If we want his skin to turn red, then we can turn on the grill for a while. We check if it is cooked inside because the chicken must always be very well cooked and then we take it out of the oven. We remove the cooking twine and serve it in pieces.

11
Done

AT THE SAME TIME WE PREPARE THE SAUCE

We put all the ingredients for the sauce in the blender and beat them until the mixture is homogeneous.

12
Done

We serve the sauce with the chicken.
