  1. 3 Or 4 half chicken breasts,

  2. 2 1/2 pounds of chicken.

  3. 1 tsp cumin powder

  4. 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

  5. 1 tsp crushed thyme

  6. 1/2 tsp

  7. 1/2 tsp onion powder

  8. 1/2 tsp salt

  9. 1 Tbs flour

  10. 2 Tbs butter

  11. 1 or 2 cloves garlic, chopped

  12. 1 or 2 jalapeno chiles, seeded, minced

  13. 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup light beer This recipe doubles easily but don't try to saute the chicken all at once. After the chicken is skinned and boned, rub it with your home spice blend. If you get inspired, add another spice. Let the spiced chicken sit at room temperature for about 20 minutes. Using a heavy 12-inch skillet, heat the butter and oil and add

  14. 1 cup of the chicken pieces at a time. Saute over medium heat until golden. Remove to a plate. Saute the rest of the chicken, adding more oil if necessary. When all the chicken is sauteed, drain off any excess oil. Put all the chicken pieces back in the pan, along with the chiles and garlic and add the beer. A great head of steam will rise up the the most wonderful aroma. Quickly now, clamp on the lid and turn the heat to low. Check every

  15. 5 minutes and turn the chicken in the reducing broth. Cook for about 15 to 18 minutes. If the broth cooks away toward the end of the cooking, just add a tablespoon more beer. At the end you should be left with a nice thick glaze. Push the chicken around the beer glaze so it all gets coated. This is about the best taco meat you will ever encounter. Since tacos are filled with other things, the recipe above will serve

  16. 4 people unless you ate too much out of the pan.
