  • Pour the beer or wine into a glass baking dish large enough to lay out the chicken. Season the chicken with salt, pepper and oregano on both sides, and place in the dish.

  • Bake for 35 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven, or until juices run clear. While chicken is baking, slice Brie with the rind into 1/4 inch thick slices. When chicken is done, place slices of Brie over the top. Return to the oven for 3 to 5 minutes, until cheese is melted. Voila, chicken with Brie sauce is complete!

I made this dish twice. The first time for my French husband using a BC Wine White (slightly sweet). It was VERY tasty and my husband loved it. The 2nd time I made it as for my mom & dad and used my mom's white cooking wine. It wasn't as good. I would recommend using a white wine that you will be drinking for dinner. Adds more flavour than regular white cooking wine. Read More

It was nice; my french husband prefers his brie with a baguette though. I added a couple cloves of garlic (sliced and placed on the chicken) and it was a nice addition. Read More

Great recipe! We love it...had never tasted brie before and though it's rather "bitter" it's super in this recipe. While my chicken cooks I take 1 lb. of cherry tomatoes and cook them down in 1 TBL EVOO. When done I add 2 TBL good basalmic vinegar and sprinkle with thyme. It sets until the end...I put tomatoes on top of brie before final oven bake. This "tangy" tomato taste really complements the brie! Read More

This is a great basic recipe that you can get creative with. I made the additions of garlic and Italian seasoning. It's important not to over melt the brie so keep an eye on it or it mixes with the wine remaining in the dish to create a very thin sauce...best to just let it melt slightly. Read More

Delicious! The chicken comes out extremely juicy and flavorful. The brie adds a really nice touch and bite to this baked chicken dish which can otherwise be quite dry and boring at times. Read More

At 37 years I'm embarrassed to say this was the first meal I have ever cooked. It was easy and and my wife thought that it tasted superb. Read More

I'd recommend using a darker tastier beer. Read More

This turned out really yummy and was juicy. Like another poster I used the wine we were going to drink. I sliced a small amount of red onions and placed them on top of the chicken about 20 minutes before adding the brie. Next time I plan to bake some grapes in with it as well! Read More

I made this recipe twice once following the directions and once making substitutions. As is the recipe is decent (if you take "to taste" to mean WAY more than 1 teaspoon of oregano). It is moist and has an interesting flavor. I liked it a little bit better with my substitutions though. I made the chicken as directed and baked it for 20 minutes. While it was cooking I diced up and cooked down 2 cloves of garlic a red onion two Roma tomatoes and a handful of red pepper in 2ish tablespoons of olive oil in a frying pan. I added that to the top of the chicken baked for 15 more minutes and then added the brie. This version has a stronger tangier flavor and better suits my tastes. As is though this recipe is definitely worth a try. Read More
