Grilled Beer Marinated Chicken

Grilled Beer Marinated Chicken

I finally got to show you the grilled chicken recipe we've been making for years. It's our favorite at barbecue parties and we wouldn't trade it for anything else. It's sensationally tasty, it smells terrific and I won't say more.

I normally use boneless and skinless thighs, but you can use any kind of chicken legs. I also tried the method with chicken breast. It's good, much better and tender than cooked otherwise, but I still prefer the thighs. We use the same method to marinate pork, beef, pork neck etc.


Boneless chicken thigs
1 kg
or with bone and skin
White onion
5 pieces
1 tbsp
300 ml
Laurel leaves
3 pieces
Ground black pepper
0.5 tsp
adjust according to how hot you like it

Step by step


Wash the chicken legs and drain well.

Place in a deep bowl, or a saucepan with a lid.


Cut the onions into round slices, about 7-8 mm thick.


Add the onions to the bowl, sprinkle with salt, pepper and crushed bay leaves.


Pour over the beer.


And toss everything with your hands, to coat the chicken on all sides.


Refrigerate for 6-10 hours, don't forget to cover with a lid.

I usually marinate the chicken in the evening before the barbecue and the next day, it's perfectly marinated. Or marinate in the morning if you grill in the evening.


After that, drain all the beer that the chicken hasn't absorbed .

You can use it to sprinkle over the chicken while grilling.


Grill the chicken and the sliced onions on both sides.


It can be served immediately but cold or reheated it's delicious as well.

The ideal garnish would be a salad or some baked potatoes, also grilled in here.
