Porter-Braised Chicken Thighs with Root Vegetables

Slightly bitter and with a deep coffee-like flavor, porter, a very dark ale, makes this braise rustic and hearty. The interplay of the toasty nuances from the porter, the sweetness of root vegetables and the spiciness of Dijon mustard creates a poultry stew full of contrasting but harmonious flavors.

Third time's a charm?
March 15, 2012
First time I made this dish, I followed the directions to the T, as the reviews for the recipe are stellar. Usually, I tweak to taste but but decided not to, this time. However, I kept waiting for something more. Unfortunately, the bitter taste prevailed too heavily and we were disappointed.
Second time I made the dish, I only used one bottle and made up for it with stock. Adjusted the spices used already given in the recipe and added some not included. I also cooked it longer than suggested hoping to reduce the bitter flavor which worked.
Pros: Yield, Good Value, Easy
Cons: Taste

This is a great meal to have on a cold day. It's warm and flavorful and very easy to make. I threw in some fennel for good measure. I also used legs and thighs.
Pros: Yield, Quick, Good Value, Easy, Appearance, Impressive, Will Make Again

Wonderful rainy day food! Easy and delicious!

This was delicious and easy. I did not have celery root, must find it next time, so I threw in an extra carrot and two stalks of celery. Also added in sauteed mixed mushrooms (crimini, oyster and portobello). Used 4 thighs and 1 split breast all bone in. Served with homemade mashed potatoes. We went back for seconds!!! This one will stay a family favorite!
Pros: Yield, Quick, Good Value, Easy, Kid-Friendly, Adaptable, Will Make Again
