      I've done a lot of "beer can chicken," but using apple juice was a first. This was wonderfully moist as chicken tends to be when cooked with this method. The difference was the apple juice! After pouring off the fat from the drippings, (we used bout 21/2 cups apple juice so the pan didn't boil dry), I thickened it with about 1 tabelspoon cornstarch in 1/3 cup water. This resulted in a very sweet, silky sauce that was delicious over the meat! I noticed that no salt or pepper was listed in the recipe, so I salted and peppered the chicken inside and out before cooking. Made for PAC Spring 2012. I will make this again!
