I made this a little different. I made it as a beer can chicken with the chicken sitting on a can of beer. I used fresh cilantro and rubbed on all the other spices. It was pretty good but I think next time it will need more spices on the inside cavity.

I tried this last night for supper, it was just ok. I will not make it again. It was very moist. Theola from Iowa
