MAKE THIS CHICKEN. If you are like I was, looking at the simple instructions and the short ingredients list thinking "This isn't what I'm looking for, I need something FANCY-SCHMANCY"...stop that. This is IT. It really is that simple, and it really is THAT good. I used a 4.75lb Chicken and a can of Tecate. 375 in the oven for 1 1/2 hours (next time i'll do 400). BING. Sadly, all those tasty little morsels that fell of the bone during the carving process ended up in my mouth and not on any of my guests plates... well, sad for the guests that is...it is good to be the king, I mean the cook. ;-)
Carcus and skin just went into a stock pot with the usual soup veggies for what I expect to be a wonderful soup for lunch tomorrow.

Yum! I rubbed the chicken with the rub recipe, and let it sit in the fridge for a few hours. This was super easy and delicious! Thanks for posting!

Very good. The skin was crispy and the meat was tender. Thank you for posting.

Yummy!!! :) This was my first time for cooking chicken this way. I didn't have any cans of beer on hand so used a can of cola. I used lemon pepper and garlic powder, salt & pepper for the rub with a litle oil. This way of cooking turns out a moist flavourful & tender chicken with a great crispy skin. I will be doing this often :) A real keeper. DH says we will really impress our friends with this one :) I will use beer next time or even maybe put some wine in a can. I will also try different rubs. Thanks for posting such a versatile recipe :)

OMG! This was just about the best chicken I've ever cooked (and I cook a good chicken!) It was flavorful, juicy, and so tender it fell right off the bone. Thank you for a great recipe, Ryoni, this one is definitely a keeper.
