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
Season the chicken inside the cavity and out with your favorite spices.
Cut the lemon and onion into small bite size pieces that will fit inside the opening of the beer can.
Separate the garlic cloves only; keep the peeling on.
Put the lemon, onions, garlic, and shrimp boil in the beer can with 1/4 can of beer.
Sit and balance the chicken on top of the beer can. So yes you will need to insert part of the can inside the chicken.
Place the chicken in a pot and cook in a 400 degree oven for 30 minutes.
Reduce heat to 345 degrees and cook for another 15 minutes
Make a gravy by deglazing the drippings.
