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
1 whole chicken , i used about 4 lbs organic chicken
1 beer can
2-3 cloves of smashed garlic
dry rub mix :
1 tbsp. of chipotle chili powder
1 tbsp. of chili powder
4 tsp. of light brown sugar
1 tsp. of kosher salt
2 tsp. of cumin
2 tsp. of coriander
1/2 tsp. of fresh black pepper
1 tsp. of garlic and 1 tsp. of onion
mix all together , and use this dry rub to rub all over the chicken , including the cavity and underneath the skin .
Then place the chicken on the beer can , and bake at 450 F for 15 minutes then turn it down to 350 F , cook about 1.5 hours or so , or until the thermometer reach 165 F . Let the chicken sit a while before slicing it .
