Happy Wednesday everyone. We are getting so close to the weekend, and it’s almost St. Patrick’s Day! Our last post featuring the beef and guinness hand pies go hand in hand with this guinness roasted chicken, it’s a toss up which one is tastier. Who would’ve thought cooking with guinness would result in some seriously juicy and flavorful meals.
Not that we don’t love red meat, but most of the recipes we share on our blog feature mostly chicken, turkey, and pork and we’ll tell you why. Not only are they healthier for you, our food stylist and recipe developer, Sammy, is actually allergic to red meat. It’s an incredibly rare allergy that she has been living with since childhood. When I hear her talk about it, it’s clear how difficult it was and is to cope to with. Being such a rare allergy, she even struggled with people believing it was true; when all it takes is cooking on a surface contaminated with red meat and game over.
On the flip side, I am incapable of living without red meat in my diet. I know there are a lot of you out there, like me, that eat red meat on the regular; and we could all use a little Sammy in our life. Moderation is key, and it never hurts to change up a recipe every now and then.
Today we bring to you this roasted chicken that needs no substitution. It’s easy to make, and enjoyed by all. Since It’s St. Patrick’s Day on Friday, it doesn’t get more festive than cooking with an Irish stout. We hope you all enjoy, and happy cooking!
