Chicken on the can

I'll be the first to admit that this looks funny. A chicken with a can of beer shoved, I mean inserted in it's...I mean up it's...oh hell - you know what I mean. It might look goofy, but it sure is good, and moist.


  • 1 whole chicken (about 5 pounds) - remove bag of 'stuff' inside
  • 1 can of beer (Shock Top)
  • 4 tablespoons fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons garlic, roughly chopped
  • olive oil
  • Kosher salt & pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 450
  2. Rinse chicken well and pat dry with paper towels
  3. Mix rosemary & garlic together
  4. Rub chicken with olive oil and season with salt & pepper
  5. Rub rosemary/garlic mixture well into chicken - all around
  6. Any extra garlic or rosemary can be put into the can
  7. Pour half of the beer into a roasting pan then push the chicken down onto the beer can so that the can goes into the umm, cavity
  8. Stand the chicken on the pan, with the bottom of the can and the two legs making a sort of triangle support
  9. Roast chicken for 15 minutes, then turn down to 350 and continue roasting for an approximately 20 minutes per pound
  10. Chicken is done when you can poke it and the juices run clear - or it reaches a temperature of 180 degrees
  11. Carefully remove can and let sit about 15 minutes before drinking, I mean eating
