Beer Chicken

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by Joe Bob Mac

An easy delicious dish to prepare and serve. The beer mixture thickens as it cooks, and can be spooned over the chicken at serving time. I have served it over rice,angel hair pasta, or a plain plate, without objection. TRY THIS ONE!!!!!!! MMMMMMMMMMM
