Beer can chicken

This is so easy I almost feel I shouldn’t post, but tastes so good I feel I should !!!

You need


Beer can – half full

Butter or olive oil

Your selection of herbs and spices

Take your chicken and slather it with either butter or olive oil and then completely cover with your choice of herbs, spices and salt and pepper.

Then take your can of half full beer and stand your chicken over the can (bottom end not neck) so it is covers at least half the can.

Now apparently you can purchase a “gadget” for the chicken to sit on but I didn’t have one so I placed my chicken in a deep sided pan and it worked great as the chicken sits snuggly on the can anyway and balanced really well through cooking time.

Place in the oven and roast for an hour and a half (depending on size of chicken). I only basted it once half way through.

At the halfway point, I added some radishes and roasted them – delicious 😜
