Another recipe I got from my best friend. Something different to try instead of your plain old sauteed chicken breasts.

How to Make Fall Apart Chicken


  • 1In a deep skillet, saute butter and onion for about 5-7 minutes.
  • 2Add chicken breasts to pan, and top with the seasonings while the bottom side is browning. Once brown, flip and repeat seasoning on opposite side.
  • 3Once both sides are browned, add one can of beer to start (about 1/3 or 1/2 way up the sides of chicken breasts). Cover and simmer on low for about 1 hour (when the beer is almost evaporated). Once the liquid is almost evaporated, add the second can of beer. Cover, and simmer for an additional hour.
  • 4You can let it cook longer if needed, just make sure there's always liquid in the bottom of the pan.
