Pumpkin Ale Chicken Fingers

Another experiment with the Sam Adams Pumpkin Ale. You don't have to use pumpkin ale, any kind of beer would be delicious! And you can leave the breasts whole if you like for a more "adult" presentation but everyone likes nuggets LOL

6 chicken breast
1 bottle Sam Adams Pumpkin Ale
1/4 cup canola oil
1/2 small onion, sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
crushed red pepper
black pepper

In a large pan combine 1 cup of the pumpkin ale(reserve remaining 1/2 cup) with the canola oil, onion and garlic. Add seasonings to taste

Add chicken and marinate at least an hour but longer if possible 3-4 would be ideal!

Drain marinade and slice chicken into chunks or slices whatever your preference.

Preheat oven to 400

1 cup fine bread crumbs(gluten free are great!)
1 tsp oregano
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
1 egg
remaining 1/2 cup ale

In a shallow dish mix bread crumbs, seasonings and cheese.

In another dish, beat egg and add the ale, mix well

Dip slices of chicken into the egg mixture, then into the bread crumbs, turning to coat.

Place on a greased baking sheet and bake for 25-35 minutes until cooked through, flipping once.
