Chicken Tacos - With Cinnamon & Beer

Updated: Oct 30, 2022

I'm always looking for something to do with Chicken Thighs and Drums. Everyone wants Chicken Breast, Chicken Tenders and Chicken Wings, but the humble Thighs and Drums are consistently the last cuts to be sold, hence the lower price per pound. They are hidden gems of flavor and value and I am determined to figure out some quick, easy and tasty recipes for using these overlooked cuts of meat. In this post, I'm going to show you how I made Chicken Tacos with a touch of cinnamon and beer using an Instant Pot Pro and our Pasture Raised Chicken.


1200g Bone In Thighs & Drums

2 Tbsp Olive Oil

2 tsp Salt

2 tsp Garlic Powder

2 tsp Chili Powder

2 tsp Oregano

1/2 tsp Cinnamon

1 tsp Coriander

16 oz Beer

Step 1: Prepare the chicken

Break down your Pasture Raised Chicken. I broke down two chickens for this recipe. Save your bones for Bone Broth, more on that in another post. Vacuum Seal your chicken breasts and wings for another meal. Separate your thighs from the drums and place them in your pot. DO NOT remove the bones from the thighs and drums at this point. They will add flavor and nutrients to the final meal and come out much easier after the pressure cook.
