Beer Brined Paprika Chicken with IPA Roasted Red Pepper Cream Sauce + Giveaway

Beer Brined Paprika Chicken with IPA roasted red pepper cream sauce

When you decided to dedicate your life to cooking with beer, people ask questions. Sometimes those questions follow puzzled looks at the grocery store at 8am while pushing a cart full of beer.

More commonly it’s during interviews, which have become more and more frequent over the past year (apparently I’m the foremost leading expert in cooking with beer). The questions are usually similar: “How did you get into cooking?” “What’s your favorite beer?” “How is that you’re not fat?”

The past three interviews I’ve had a new question come up all three times: “What are your favorite kitchen items?”

I did an entire interview for the May issue of Imbibe’s print magazine about things I can’t live without. To be honest, the answer changes a bit from moment to moment, but one thing that always seems to fall into that Can’t Live Without category is my Le Creuset cast iron skillet. I’ve cooked everything from cake to steak in mine and it’s my go to for quick dinners. Without hesitation it’s the pan I’d choose over all the others.

red skillet

With a little inspiration from that question, and the upcoming gift giving festivities, I’m giving some of my favorite things away. A cherry red Le Creuset cast iron skillet (my absolute favorite), an autographed copy of my cookbook: The Craft Beer Cookbook, and salt that I love so much I carry some around in my purse: Smoked Maldon Salt.

I’m even sharing a recipe from my book that I make in that go-to cast iron skillet. It even tastes great made with some of that smoked salt I love so much.

Beer Brined Paprika Chicken with IPA Roasted Red Pepper Cream Sauce

Ingredients

    For the Chicken:
  • 1 cup IPA beer
  • 1 cup Chicken Broth
  • 1 tbs kosher salt, plus ¼ tsp, divided
  • 3 lbs chicken, bone in, skin on (thighs, legs, wings)
  • 1 tbs smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp sweet paprika
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • For the sauce:
  • 2 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 tbs sour cream
  • 2 tbs IPA
  • 1 roasted red pepper (from a jar is fine)
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • Rice for serving

Directions

  • Add the beer, chicken broth and salt to a bowl, stir to combine. Add the chicken, place bowl in the refrigerator for 3 to 6 hours. Remove chicken from the brine, rinse, pat dry.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the smoked paprika, sweet paprika, onion powder, nutmeg, and cayenne. Add the Chicken, toss until well coated. Allow to sit at room temperature for 10 to fifteen minutes.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large cast iron skillet. Add the chicken, fat side down, and allow to brown, about 4 minutes. Turn chicken over and place cast iron skillet in the oven, cook at 425 for 18 to 20 minutes or until cooked through. (If you don’t own a large enough cast iron skillet to accommodate the chicken, brown chicken in batches and place on a baking sheet that has been covered with aluminum foil. Place baking sheet in the oven, cook at 425 for 18 to 20 minutes.)
  • While the chicken is cooking, add all of the sauce ingredients to a food processor, process until smooth.
  • Plate chicken on top of rice, cover with sauce prior to serving.

    It only took about 5 months before I started cooking nearly everything in my cast iron skillets. Currently have marinara simmering. I love the crust that forms on meat like your chicken recipe here. I’m not a big IPA fan, but I’ll give it a try with a less hoppy beer. Thanks, Beeroness!

  128. Lara December 1, 2013 at 3:48 pm #

    Hard to decide…maybe some cornbread to start!

    I would make cornbread! YUM!!

  150. SharonF December 1, 2013 at 5:50 pm #

    I have some catfish fillets just begging to be fried in that skillet.

  151. Sharon B December 1, 2013 at 5:59 pm #

    I would definitely make this beer brined paprika chicken and then I think I would also use it to make shrimp scampi. I am sure I would get lots of use out of it!!

  152. Kyna December 1, 2013 at 6:01 pm #

    I’d probably first make some fried eggs.

  153. Skylar S December 1, 2013 at 6:01 pm #

    I’ve never cooked in a cast iron skillet, so I’m not sure! Maybe a steak or something that I could pop in the oven to finish?

  154. Kindra R. December 1, 2013 at 6:07 pm #

    What a great pan. I would make pancakes right away for the kiddos. Thanks for a chance to win!

  155. Abby December 1, 2013 at 6:43 pm #

    I’ve wanted to try baking bread in one!

  156. Anne H. December 1, 2013 at 6:52 pm #

  157. Krista December 1, 2013 at 7:00 pm #

  163. Maureen December 1, 2013 at 7:41 pm #

    I would love to make some pancakes with a beer/blueberry reduction.

  164. Dave December 1, 2013 at 7:54 pm #

    Yet another amazing looking and sounding dish!

  165. steph December 1, 2013 at 7:57 pm #

    If I won a gorgeous red cast iron pan, I’d have your IPA citrus marinated pork chops in there in a flash. The accompanying peach-poblano salsa is my most favorite salsa on earth, and I lose my patience every summer waiting for peach season to come on.

  166. Danicia December 1, 2013 at 8:10 pm #

    I’ve got a fantastic recipe for a medieval mushroom pie. I’d start with those mushrooms, with shallots, and herbs to go in the pie.

  167. Jolene December 1, 2013 at 8:10 pm #

    Yummm…I love paprika and I love roasted red peppers….This might be dinner one night this week!

  168. Christine P December 1, 2013 at 8:17 pm #

    I would make some sort of “dessert in a skillet” brownie or blondie! I see them everywhere and they always look delicious! This chicken is a close runner too – looks lovely!

  169. Paula – bell’alimento December 1, 2013 at 8:23 pm #

    This looks like a perfect dinner to me! Sounds like the some wonderful flavors all rolled up into one amazing dish!

  170. Shannon December 1, 2013 at 8:26 pm #

    I found your blog from Bakaholic Mama. Very excited as I add beer to everything.

  171. Anne December 1, 2013 at 9:00 pm #

    I have a lot of ideas for things that I’d make in that fabulous cast-iron skillet, like cornbread, or tortillas, but first I think I’d try a traditional tarte tatin, which would take advantage of its stovetop-to-oven capabilities.

  172. Bob Flanagan December 1, 2013 at 9:00 pm #

    Hash browns

  173. jackie December 1, 2013 at 9:07 pm #

    If I win the cast iron pan I will make chili stout sloppy joes and of course, stout bacon jam!

  174. Michelle B December 1, 2013 at 9:41 pm #

    I LOVE Maldon salt, but haven’t tried the smoked! Thanks for the giveaway!

  175. Michelle B December 1, 2013 at 9:43 pm #

    I’ve never used cast iron and have been wanting to invest…this would be perfect. I really would love to just try making steak! Of course, using one of your beer inspired recipes :)

  176. Kim Porter December 1, 2013 at 9:58 pm #

    I’d be making some sliders with beer cheese sauce!

  177. Laura C December 1, 2013 at 10:03 pm #

    Everything??? I would love to win the skillet!

  178. sylvia waters December 1, 2013 at 10:14 pm #

    I really like the taste of sea salt but not regular salt – funny that you do also

  179. Allison (Spontaneous Tomato) December 1, 2013 at 10:31 pm #

    I’d make skillet potatoes and fried eggs!

  180. Natalie J Vandenberghe December 1, 2013 at 10:45 pm #

  181. MaryB December 1, 2013 at 11:02 pm #

    This recipe looks delicious! I’d also make Chicken Forester – one of my hubby’s favorites.

  182. Jennay December 1, 2013 at 11:31 pm #

    Skillet Apple Pie

  183. Margot C December 1, 2013 at 11:34 pm #

    I think that pan deserves a Trout Almandine.

  184. Chung-Ah | Damn Delicious December 1, 2013 at 11:35 pm #

    Dude, that red pepper cream sauce has completely won me over!

  185. Sheri B. December 2, 2013 at 12:03 am #

  186. Jess Z December 2, 2013 at 12:14 am #

  188. Steve December 2, 2013 at 12:48 am #

  190. Bev @ Bev Cooks December 2, 2013 at 5:18 am #

    Omgggg that sauce. Give me a funnel.

  191. Marsha A December 2, 2013 at 5:25 am #

    sauteed mushrooms and garlic

  192. Brittany R. December 2, 2013 at 5:31 am #

    This has got to be a trick question, because I would make literally EVERYTHING in this skillet. Cornbread crusted chili sounds really good right now, though

  193. cindylou wolfe December 2, 2013 at 6:21 am #

    Fried chicken, cornbread, sausage and gravy… you name it!

  203. Sarah December 2, 2013 at 8:43 am #

    I’d use it for items I grill during the summer when it’s too cold to be outside…steaks, pork tenderloin, burgers, etc.

  204. Mads December 2, 2013 at 9:13 am #

    I love that skillet! I would use it for just about everything!

  212. Gillian December 2, 2013 at 11:37 am #

    I found a recipe a while back for a skillet oatmeal butterscotch cookie with bourbon sauce, and have been dying to make it. There are a myriad of other things I would love to make (like that awesome chicken!), but that one sticks out.

  213. Angie December 2, 2013 at 1:01 pm #

  255. Linda Brinkmeyer December 3, 2013 at 1:23 pm #

    Thank you for putting up the recipe for beer potato and cheese. I think that’s what I would make first and then, perhaps a pizza. Beer adds a nice flavor to the crust I think.

    I would make pan fried potato slices, we called them home fries and ate them for breakfast growing up, I am making them my kids favorite as well!

    We love breaded and pan-fried “meats” – chicken parmesan, scallopini, picata, etc.
