This chicken is fantastic! I have an indoor grill that I use in the winter season, and I make this chicken quite often....don't forget to marinade the chicken before grilling, as it won't have the same flavour. Note: prep time, does not include marinating the chicken.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine butter, beer, lemon juice, garlic and lemon pepper.
  2. Pour over chicken pieces, and cover; store in refrigerater 4-6 hours to marinate.
  3. On a grill, barbecue pieces, brushing sauce over chicken as you turn them.
  4. Grill about 15-20 mins per side.

Delicious! Added about 1/3 cup of brown sugar because I was afraid it would be too sour. Used Genuine Draft beer, fresh garlic and a teaspoon of sea salt. Marinated 6 hours. Will make again!

Very good! The chicken was tender and moist. Since we are not beer drinkers, I had purchased a can just to try it in this recipe. The flavor was very good and next time I make it, I will also cut back on the butter. We used chicken breast. Thanks for sharing.

I ended up using chicken drumsticks ( our favorite cut and budget friendly) and only made half the marinade... after reading the reviews I decided to cut down on the amount of butter and lemon juice... I think I used two large juicy lemons and only 2-3 TBS of butter... I added both granulated garlic and minced fresh since we love garlic. The butter thickened up immediately after adding in the beer so I massaged the legs with it before letting it marinate for 4 hours. We ran out of gas on our grill so I had to broil these in the oven. They had a lovely lemon-y beer taste and crispy skin. I know they would be even better on the grill so we will be making them again soon... thanks!!!
