Always a good prep step to pre-rinse raw chicken. Any variety of Samuel Adams works well in the recipe with such rich flavor you can't go wrong.
Stew roasting is a dummy proof method for precooking chicken. It assures the appropriate doneness while tenderizing to perfection.
You can see the flavor profile taking place each step from adding the beer broth through the herbs and finishing with the lemons layers.
Wow! What a beautiful dish and we haven't even cooked it yet. No wonder I call these bad boys Yummy Drummy's.
When ever working in a hot oven take care. Remember safety first and last. I recommend when removing from the hot oven take the lid off first. The beer broth is scorching hot at this point.
Allow all the excess beer broth to drain off before adding to Deep Fryer. Liquid in a fryer is dangerous and can lead to splattering hot oil. Theres nothing wrong with steam roasting the chicken well before the frying process.
This generally takes 6 to 8 minutes to fry but your personal preference may choose to adjust the timing. I strongly suggest only cooking one layer at a time this allows for a better cooking time and will fry evenly.
