I absolutely love a moist chicken and a roasted beer can chicken is AMAZING! Sometimes in the winter months it’s just too much to trudge through the snow to stoke up the grill. I’ve found however that you can roast the chicken in the oven and get very similar results and there’s literally no difference in the preparation.
You should definitely give this recipe a try if you’re the type of person who thinks it’s too hard to cook a moist chicken in the oven. It’s definitely possible and a can of beer is really all it takes to keep everything nice and moist.
If you’re in need of some roasting plans the Pyrex glass pans are great. They’re really nice to cook with and clean up is a cinch.
