What’s for dinner?  Chicken.  Again?  

Have you ever heard this? But, “chicken again” is delicious when you pair sauteed chicken cutlets with mushrooms simmered and glazed in Guinness beer.

Chicken can get boring if you don’t break out of the box. It doesn’t have to be.

The beer soaked button mushrooms in this Guinness Mushroom Chicken Breasts impart the subtle flavor of the stout.

Spear each bite of chicken with a mouthful of mushrooms and I promise no more boring chicken.

I had a few Guinness beers left in the fridge.  I’ve been looking for ways to use Guinness in my cooking and this was one of them.

Also be sure to check out my Guinness Brownies recipe which is perfect dessert for St. Patrick’s Day.

You won’t use the whole beer to make these mushrooms so be sure to pour the remainder in a frosty glass to enjoy. Drink up!

How to Make Guinness Mushroom Chicken Breasts

This recipe is easy to make with a cast iron skillet. Its my trusted pan that you can use for anything and this recipe is no exception. It allows the chicken and mushrooms to evenly cook and can be kept in the oven to stay warm.

First, brown several chicken breast cutlets after drizzling each with olive oil. After about 4 minutes, flip the chicken and finish sauteeing, about 3 minutes further. Remove the chicken to a plate.

Next, saute the mushrooms in butter until the mushrooms release their juices and start to brown. Add in the Worcestershire sauce and Guinness Beer and continue to cook until the liquid has reduced by half.

Add the chicken back to the pan and spoon the mushrooms and liquid over the chicken before serving.
