A go-to summer recipe at our house is so tasty, easy and simple that we make it about once a week. Why mess with something that works, right?

Beer Chicken

Ingredients:
• 1 whole chicken, rinsed and salted
• Butter or margarine
• 1 Beer Chicken stand (I got mine at Home Hardware, but I’ve seen them in a lot of places.)

Directions:
• Rinse and salt whole chicken. 
• Place a can of beer (or pop) on the base of the stand. 
• Hoist full chicken onto Beer Chicken stand. 

Pan Fries

• Try not to laugh at the sight (it’s almost impossible).

• Heat 1/2 of your barbecue to medium-high and place the chicken on the opposite side.

• Close the barbecue lid and cook for 45-60 minutes, until a meat thermometer reads 180F/82C.
• Use oven mitts to grab the stand and chicken and remove them from the barbecue.
• Place chicken in a roasting pan or on a large cutting board and let stand for ten minutes before you carve it.

If you don’t have a Beer Chicken stand and/or you want a variation of this recipe, check out this Grilled Chicken On A Can recipe that came in my newsletter the morning after I took the photos for this post.

What to serve with the beer chicken is the next question. I’m a fan of a huge tossed salad but my husband needs potatoes to go with his meat dish.

Pan Fries

Ingredients:

• 4-5 of your favorite potatoes
• Butter or margarine
• 1 aluminum roasting pan
• Aluminum foil

Directions:

• Slice potatoes into “dollar coins.”
• Layer in roasting pan
• Place dollops of butter/margarine on top and in between layers of the potatoes 

Beer Chicken

• Cover with aluminum foil
• Cook on the barbecue over medium-high heat for approximately 45 minutes, stirring halfway through
• Remove from barbecue using oven mitts and serve!

My husband and kids like to fight over the extra crispy ones. Enjoy!
