½cups Sauterne
12oz Beer

1. In a large non-aluminum (preferably glass or glazed cast iron) bowl make pepper. Place all the beef in the bowl and mix lightly to coat the meat well. Cover and refrigerate overnight. (If time is short marinate for 2 hours at room temperature.)

2. Place the chicken breasts in a saucepan with enough water to cover. Add 1 teaspoon salt and simmer over low heat for ½ hour. Remove the chicken reserving the liquid. Chop the chicken breasts fine and reserve.

3. Meal the oil in a large heavy pot. Add the onions and cook until they are translucent.

4. Meanwhile, drain the beef, straining and reserving the marinade. Mix the beef and pork together, then combine the meats with the ground chile, cayenne pepper, oregano, cumin, rosemary, and the rest of the salt. Add this meat-and-spice mixture to the pot with the onions. Break up any lumps with a fork and cook, stirring occasionally, until the meat is evenly browned.

5. Add half the marinade, the reserved chicken, tomatoes, both tomato sauces, jalapenos, and 1 tablespoon of liquid hot pepper sauce to the pot.

6. Melt the butter in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Add the fresh chiles, mushrooms, and a small amount of the Sauterne and cook for 3 minutes. Add this to the pot.

7. Bring to a boil and simmer, uncovered, for at least 3 hours. When the chili is cooking, from time to time stir in the remaining marinade, the remaining Sauterne, and beer. If more liquid is needed, stir in the water the chicken was cooked in. Taste and adjust seasonings.

Your Georgia Chain-Gang Chili is ready. Happy cooking!
