Recipe for spicy Beer Can Chicken – cooked in the oven as an alternative to the braai version
1 large chicken (free range is best)
6 TBSP of spices of your choice
1 can of beer
Preheat oven to 200 degrees
REMOVE any insides from the chicken
RINSE the chicken with cold water pat dry.
RUB the chicken, inside and out with spices.
Open the beer and drink half of it then punch extra holes on the can.
Add 2 tbsp of spices inside the beer can.
PLACE beer can on oven proof pan or dish this allows the chicken to cook indirectly and cathes the juices if you want to make a gravy. ARRANGE chicken on beer can, allow the two legs to form two sides of tripod so the chicken is stable.
REDUCE oven to 170 degrees after first 30 mins. Best when chicken cooks for about 1 1/2 – 2 hours
When chicken is ready carefully remove to a separate platter. Allow to stand for 10 mins.
