    jen-r-bug's Note:

    These little chickens look so pretty sitting up on your grill. They come out so tender and juicy with just the right flavor. Perfect for entertaining or just a week night supper.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (3 lb) roasting chickens
    • 0.5 (12 ounce) can beer (full flavor works better than light, but both are good)
    • 3 -4 tablespoons cajun seasoning
    • 1 small onion (small potato works if you don't like onion)


    1. 1
      clean out the inside and outside of the chicken. remove any odds and end parts stored in the chicken.
    2. 2
      open the beer can and dump out or drink half.
    3. 3
      sit the chicken on the can so that the can goes straight up the chicken's rump.
    4. 4
      the chicken should now sit upright on your grill or on a pan to put in the oven.
    5. 5
      rub cajun seasoning all over the chicken inside and out (use any seasoning you like really).
    6. 6
      stick the onion or potato in the chicken's neck to seal in the flavor.
    7. 7
      now it is ready for the grill. I don't know exact temps for chicken to be done, but it usually takes about 1 1/2 hours on my gas grill on medium. or the same amount of time in the oven at 350. note: I don't cook with charcoal so I don't know about it, but if you do, and want to try it, please post how long it took.
    8. 8
      when done, carefullt remove chicken from beer can and enjoy.

      This was phenomenal. As with other review, the chicken was so juicy. It only took about an hour on our grill with a 6 lb chicken to cook throughly. We served with roasted vegetables and it was a wonderful summer dish. Thank you so much!

      OH MY! This was delicious and juicy. Made 2 5lb chickens, it took 1 1/2 hrs on medium to cook. My family loved this, even my old school dad! I'll be making this again, often! Thanks for a great recipe.
