Chicken & Beer!

We slaughtered and ate our second meal of home-grown chickens this weekend. This time the whole process was much quicker - and with better results. The chicken was tasty and tender. Here's my recipe:

Two whole chickens, two quarts of Milwaukee's Best, 1 can crushed tomatoes, a pinch of garlic powder, a sprinkling of parmesian cheese, and a sprinkling of Bells' seasoning - cook in crock pot all day. Serve with biscuits, green beans, and baked potatoes.

Mrs. Curley came back from Florida on Saturday with this feast awaiting her.

Next time I may use a darker beer - but otherwise no one would change a thing. It was so good we felt guilty eating it during Lent.

From the small holding in Bethune...

Oremus pro invicem!

sounds yummy. You could also try a bottle of cheap white wine, a few bay leaves, some rosemary and the tomatoes.
Did you serve it with rice? noodles? potatoes?

A bottle of cheap white wine may be more cost effective than 2 quarts of beer (even being Mil. Best). We served with baked potatoes and green beans. Maybe these (or like them) will come from our garden within a few months.
