Ingredients

For the Chicken
1
whole chicken
12
ounce can full-flavored beer
 
cooking oil
1/4
cup of your favorite rub

Ingredient Tips

Rub
When cooking in The Big Easy fryer, avoid sugary rubs. The infrared heat will quickly burn giving the chicken a bitter taste.

Directions

Prep: 10 Minutes, Cook: 1 Hour
1

Rinse the chicken and pat dry.

2

Apply light coat of cooking oil to the chicken. Then, coat in your favorite rub or spices. Insert an oven-proof meat thermometer into the meaty section of breast.

3

Open beer and place the chicken cavity over the can. Lower leaving some of the beer can exposed. Then set it in The Big Easy® cooking basket.

4

Place cooking basket into The Big Easy fryer and turn on the cooker.

5

Remove chicken when internal temperature reaches 160°F, about 1 hour.

6

Place the chicken in a pan or tray. Tent with foil and let rest for 15 to 20 minutes. This will allow the temperature to rise to 165°F.

7

Carve and serve.
