Garlicky Guinness Glaze

Garlicky Guinness Glaze

Cooking with beer is something I love to do. Beer has a lot of flavours that can add depth to any recipe. You can enjoy the caramel sweet malts or bitter citrus hops in any recipe. For every beer review post I share, I will include a recipe that uses beer to cook with. Today I am cooking with Guinness Extra Stout Beer to make a garlicky Guinness glaze to go on a chicken sandwich. It’s sweet, strong, bitter and sticky and compliments chicken so well!

Guinness Extra Stout Review

Guinness is an American-style stout brewed by Guinness, coming in at 5.0% alc.vol. 

A – pours pitch black with a tan foamy head that sticks to the glass

S – sweet roasted malts and coffee

T – bitter coffee rounded off with sweet roasted malts – not far from the smell

M – smooth and medium bodied (s0me say it’s full, but it is lighter than expected, I think)

O – not as creamy as the draught version, but a nice balance of bitters and sweetness.

Stout is great for gravies and barbecue sauces, and I am not steering to far from that idea with this garlicky Guinness glaze. 

Garlicky Guinness Glaze

In a small sauce pot, combine minced garlic, Worcestershire sauce and honey and bring to a slight simmer, letting the garlic soften slightly. 

Add in the brown sugar and stir to dissolve and then add in the Guinness and a dash of salt and pepper. Let simmer for 30 minutes, watching and stirring occasionally, until it reduces by half. 

When glaze is ready, start the chicken by heating a small amount of cooking oil in a hot frying pan. Saute the mushrooms in 2 tsp of the garlicky Guinness glaze until soft. Set aside. 

Using the same pan, heat up cooking oil and place chicken breasts in hot pan. While cooking, drizzle small amounts of the garlicky Guinness glaze on the chicken, while turning occasionally to cook through. Ensure you save about 2 Tbsp. of the garlicky Guinness glaze to drizzle on the sandwich. Once done (about 20 minutes), assemble the sandwich. 

Using a bun of your choice, layer the bottom with coleslaw (make your own favourite recipe or use store bought), top with a chicken breast, mushrooms, a drizzle of the garlicky Guinness glaze and top with a slice of provolone cheese. Spread about 1 Tbsp. of mayo evenly on the top bun and enjoy! Best served with a cold glass of Guinness!
