Beer Can Chicken
This will be the last in the chicken recipes for a while. I'm "chickened out" ;-)
But don't think I've ever shared a BEER CAN chicken recipe with you.
You can make this on the grill or in your oven. I made mine in the oven.
1 organic chicken
dried pepper (any variety will do)
sea salt (optional)
Saute some garlic cloves, red onion, fresh cilantro and sliced up dried pepper.
With kitchen shears cut up 2 slices of bacon.
Wash the chicken inside and out and pat it dry. Now take the sauteed goodness ans stuff it inside the chicken and under the skin. Add the bacon pieces to it, again under the skin and inside the cavity. Sprinkle the chicken liberally with garlic powder,paprika and cayenne. (I did add some sea salt)
Take a can of beer and empty half of it. Take an oven proof dish, and put the chicken cavity over the beer can. In the oven she goes at 325 for about an hour or more depending on temperature.
Would love to know if and when you decide to try this and how it came out.
(The dark bits at the bottom of the pic. are not charred skin, but pieces of the dark red dried california pepper I used)
Make it a GREAT WEEK.
