A beautiful and tasty chicken dish, braised using beer. You can make this dish with your favourite beer, from blond or golden ale to stouts or any dark alse. The taste will be slightly different depending what beer you choose but all delicious.

I used smoked ham, but bacon works equally well. Try and buy the smaller white button mushrooms, if you can’t find them, simply dice them up.

Make sure you use the chicken thighs on the bone, makes all the difference keeping it juicy and more flavoursome.
