I (family and friends) just love this recipe. I've made it 4 times and it's more delicious each time. I did however make a change or four after the first time I made it. 1) 'm not a fan of brown ale so I used a can of just regular old beer (Coors, Budweiser) what ever was on sale. 2) I used chicken breasts after the first time. 3) I doubled the sauce portion and increased the amount of celery and carrots. 4) this last time I had a half container of mushrooms from a previous recipe so added them when the celery and carrots were just about sautéed. Hope you all will try it.
