BEER CAN CHICKEN DINNER


This is one of our favorite ways to cook chicken.  Have you ever had "beer can chicken"?  It's delicious.
We got ours via Amazon:

 Beer can ChickCAN Rack

There are others out there, we had another brand but the metal bent on it so we bought these.  Very sturdy.



Here they are finished, about 45 minutes at 375 degrees.  Golden and brown and ready to eat.  We use beer most of the time.  In this case we used Tecate, which is a Mexican beer brand and we put a few sprigs of fresh rosemary in each beer can as well.  




We found it was easiest to just cut the back bone out of the chicken while it was still on the rack which acts as support.  That lets you cut the chicken completely in half and make it easier for serving.  




And here is how we served it.  Half a chicken (these were pretty small) alongside some homemade stuffing and some fresh baked yeast rolls.  Sure, no vegetables, but as you can see, we ran out of room.  Both on the plate AND in our tummies!

Yes, it's a great way to split them in half, much easier. I know, no veg, from someone planning gardens, ha. We just didn't have room on the plate this time, LOL! I promise we love veggies!
