Here is the best use for your beer can. Cook your chicken with it. This Cajun Drunken Chicken seasoned with crab-crawfish-shrimp-boil seasoning is sure to be a crowd pleaser. The steam from the beer helps keep the chicken moist.


  • 1 chicken fryer 4 - 5 pounds
  • 1/4 can beer - keep the 8 oz size can
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 large head garlic
  • 3 tbsp crab-crawfish-shrimp boil seasoning
  • salt and pepper seasoning for your chicken


Step 1

Season the chicken inside the cavity and out with your favorite spices.

Step 2

Separate the garlic cloves only; keep the peeling on.

Step 4
