    1. In a bowl, season the chicken with salt, garlic, chilli pepper and bay leaves, mix everything very well, drizzle with beer and let it marinate for about 1 to 2 hours.
    2. After that time, drain the chicken and save the marinade.
    3. In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil and margarine.
    4. Add the chicken pieces with bay leaves and garlic and fry the chicken equally over medium high heat for about 20 minutes (stirring from time to time so that it does not stick).

    6. Finally, add the parsley and stir well.
