Beer Can Roasted Chicken

This one recipe is super easy and simple . I made this chicken in the oven instead of the grill . Meat thermometer helps if you have one , since you tend to overcook chicken and yet you don’t want to have an under cooked chicken on your plate . Make sure the thermometer reaches 165 F before taking the chicken out from the oven . And place the thermometer into the thickest part of the chicken which is the thighs area and don’t hit the bone or else it will give you false temperature .

My chicken turned out with crispy skin the way i like it .. and very juice meat inside . I served them with home made mashed potatoes and seasoned blanched green beans
