I always have chicken tenders in the freezer. Chicken is what my kids like to eat the most and tenders are very handy as they are very versatile and cook quite fast. The other day I had some beer in the fridge that begged to be used, so I whipped up a quick and delicious dinner in 20 minutes, by braising the chicken tenders in the beer! It was a success. Even my kids liked it, as the final result was not bitter (I used a pale lager) and I served it with lots of my quick No-knead Ciabatta bread to soak up all those delicious juices! If you are looking for a quick mid-week dinner idea, look no further and give this chicken a try.
