The new Pampered Chef Beer Can Chicken Roasting Pan is a great addition to my grilling collection. I made Beer Can Chicken a couple of weeks ago and was impressed, but tonight I switched it up and made an incredible dinner!
1 Roasting Chicken (6 - 7 lbs)
1 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp sea salt
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp Weber Beer Can Chicken seasoning
Okay, I know I called it beer can chicken, but instead of a beer, I filled the can with orange slices tossed with Thyme and salt. The chicken was very juicy and very flavorful.
Rinse the chicken in cold water and pat dry. Place body over can (drumsticks down). Peel two oranges and separate into slices. Sprinkle with thyme and salt. Toss well. Stuff the orange slices into the opening in the top of the chicken. Brush olive oil over all skin. Sprinkle the Beer Can Chicken seasoning over the chicken. Use your hands to rub the seasoning on areas that you can not sprinkle.
Bake in 375 degree oven for 2 - 2 1/2 hours. Be sure to place the bottom portion of your broiler pan underneath the grill pan to catch grease. You will find this recipe will create a great deal of smokiness if cooked indoors instead of outside on the grill. However, outside on the grill will result in lots of fire. Have water ready.
After 2 - 2 1/2 hours you will remove a gorgeous browned, well-seasoned chicken.
Who doesn't like crispy skin from turkey or chicken? Yumm!!!
