Cooking with Hope Beer: Chicken with Honey Beer Sauce

Simplicity has been one of the core features of our recipes (along with taste!) and they don’t get easier than this Chicken with Honey Beer Sauce; which originally appeared on The malty sweetness of Passifyoucan Pale Ale is the perfect beer for the sauce mix and the good news there is enough left over to enjoy a glass of it with the finished dish.


2 teaspoons canola or olive oil

2  skinless chicken breasts

Salt and pepper for seasoning

1 thinly sliced shallot

½ cup Passifyoucan Pale Ale

2 tablespoons soy sauce

1 tablespoon whole-grain Dijon mustard

1 tablespoon honey

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


Heat a large frying pan over medium to high heat. Add the oil to the pan and swirl to coat. Season the chicken evenly with salt and pepper and sauté for six minutes on each side or until done.

Remove chicken from the pan and keep warm. Add the shallots to the pan and cook for one minute. Whisk the beer, honey, Dijon mustard and soy sauce in a small bowl and add this mixture to the pan; bring to a boil, scraping pan to loosen any browned bits.

Cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until liquid is reduced. Return chicken to pan and coat evenly with the sauce. Garnish with the chopped parsley and serve with whatever you like!
