You've seen these gadgets to make Beer Can Chicken, right? They do a mighty job!
If you don't have one, you should get one! You'll have the moistest, most flavorful chicken ever - and it's fun!
Bring a whole chicken home, remove and discard the innards (or save them for something else) and rinse the chicken. Rub a little olive oil all over the chicken and season with your favorite stuff... I use garlic powder, rosemary, parsley, whatever is on hand.
Then pop open a beer and take a swig (the can should be about 3/4 full). I've used beer, soda, and sometimes just an empty soda can filled about 3/4 with water. The contents of the can doesn't seem to make a difference in the flavor or the moistness of the chicken.
I used Coke Zero, because that's what I found in the fridge! Put the can in the holder and set the seasoned chicken on the can.
At medium heat, it usually takes about an hour in a covered grill. To be sure, use a thermometer and cook until the chicken reaches a temperature of 180 F. You can find a great thermometer through my favorite Pampered Chef consultant.I halved some yellow and green zucchini and put them on a black iron skillet.
