Meanwhile in a separate frying pan heat the olive oil, season chicken with salt and pepper and pan sear chicken thighs and sausage. Transfer to baking dish along with potatoes and carrots.

Increase heat and deglaze pan with Steam Whistle Pilsner, simmering until all beer has soaked into shallots and garlic. Add broth and reduce by a third.
