Original recipe yields 4 chicken breasts



  1. Rinse and pat dry the chicken breasts. Rub the garlic powder and chili powder onto the surface of the chicken; season with salt and pepper.
  2. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat; lay the chicken into the skillet with the bone side facing down. Add the onions. Cover the skillet and cook, stirring the onions occasionally, 15 minutes. Turn the chicken and continue cooking until the chicken is no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 30 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
  3. Add the potatoes to the skillet, return the cover to the skillet, and cook until the potatoes are cooked through, 7 to 10 minutes. Pour the beer into the skillet and allow the mixture to cook uncovered until the liquid is mostly absorbed, 7 to 10 minutes. Remove the chicken to a platter and set aside. Sprinkle the cheese over the potato and onion mixture; cook until the cheese is melted. Serve hot with the chicken breasts.

The cook times are way off on this recipe. It had a very onion taste and was just not good. Sorry! It took a lot longer to cook than indicated and it was too late to make something new. I wouldn't even waste my time modifing.



Really, really tasty! Cook times were a little off as the other reviewer mentioned, but pretty easy to figure out. Chicken had great flavor.



This was actually pretty good. And as the other's said a little onion-y, but nothing that couldn't be fixed.
