Drunken Chicken

Drunken Chicken or Beer Can Chicken, it's one of my favorite ways to cook chicken.  It's easy and it comes out so moist and tender, Oooh so good. There is so many variations but here's my simple recipe for you to start experimenting.

Give it a try, hope you Enjoy!!!

  •    1 whole chicken (fryer)
  •    BBQ sauce
  •    8 ounces beer of choice


Prepare your BBQ grill for medium to high heat.
Rinse chicken and pat dry.
Season inside and out with Cajun Seasoning to your taste.
Pour half of beer out of can (yeah right) and refill with 2 tablespoons of BBQ sauce & 1 tablespoon of Cajun Seasoning. 
I like to inject the chicken with some of that same mixture.  
Place can on a disposable baking sheet or aluminum foil. 
Set chicken over beer can, inserting can into cavity of the chicken.
Place baking sheet with beer and chicken on the preheated grill. Cover, and cook about 1 1/2 hours or until chicken is fully cooked and no longer pink and juices run clear. 
Serve with sides of choice.
