Up Its Ass Beer Chicken

Wednesday, 18 March 2009

I will keep this post short as I am flying home TODAY and I still have some bits and bobs to pack. The wedding is next Saturday so I don't think I will be able to post anything next week. Thank you for all your comments in advance. I will be back! So, here is my last post of the month - beer in the butt chicken.

Uncle A. and Aunt B. gave me this wonderful recipe together with their yummy bah kut teh recipe. I added paprika and cayenne pepper as I wanted something spicy. Rubbing the chicken with beer made the skin very crispy somehow and roasting the chicken with a can of beer up its butt made the meat very tender and moist.

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium Chicken – about 1.6kg
  • 1 can Beer (any)
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 tbs Paprika
  • Lemon Juice

Directions:

  • Mix together 1/2 cup beer, salt, pepper, cayenne pepper and paprika.
  • Rub chicken with the seasoned beer. Leave for at least 30 mins.

  • Preheat oven to 220°C.
  • Stuff the remaining can beer up the chicken’s ass.
  • beer chicken2
  • Pour the beer used to rub the chicken in the roasting pan. Place chicken standing on roasting pan (beer can as support).
  • Place roasting pan on the bottommost rack. Roast for 15 mins at 220°C.
  • Reduce heat to 150°C and roast for another 1 hour 15 min(Normally about 45 mins per kg).
  • beer chicken3
  • Cover the chicken and let rest for 10 minutes before carving.

For gravy:

  • Squeeze a bit of lemon juice to pan juices. (The amount depends on how sour you want the sauce to be, I would suggest adding about a quarter of a lemon's juice first and taste.)
  • Adjust taste (for more beer taste and to reduce saltiness) using remaining beer in can.

zerrin said...

I love all those pictures, and also feel pity for that chicken. It seems so helpless, but with that great recipe, it found a real identity.
Hope the wedding will be a perfect one.

lisaicooking said...

Your chicken is cute! When I've tried this, the chicken always falls over, but it does make the meat tender.

I couldn't help myself and chuckled when I saw the title. And you've put a smile to my face with the picture of the chicken in the oven. Too funny!

Ha! Awesome. I've had a similar recipe on the back burner, waiting for me to get a full sized oven so I can make it.

Soma said...

I was LOL when I read the title:=)

Sophie said...

Hahaha, what a great idea to put that chicken on over the can!! Funny, you are!!

Happy cook said...

Once i saw in a cooking show and this guy was making chicken like these.
Loved you pictures too.
And the chicken looks delish.

Rich said...

Tried it last night, and I put it in upside down but it was still good. Baked potatoes on the side got a light splashing of chicken grease which made the skins even crispier and tastier, buy Oy, my oven is dirty today! Thanks for the recipe. :)

Kevin said...

That chicken looks good! I have been wanting to try a beer can chicken.

Robin Sue said...

Ya know I have tried this and mine always falls over. Maybe it's drunk?? I need to get one of those fancy schmancy stands so that it will stay up. Great name!

Big Boys Oven said...

oh boy I just gazed how the chicken sits on the beer can ! awesome unimagineable!

Nikki The Foodie said...

My family has made this recipe for years and it always turns out perfect! Thanks for sharing!

The Food Hunter said...

I love beer can chicken. It's so easy and always turns out good.

Sandie said...

And to think, I've only heard to it referred to as "Beer in the Rear" chicken. Your name is much more colorful!

Femin Susan said...

Have a wonderful wedding!

email2me said...

OMG! The chicken get sodomized by a beer can. =.="

chuck said...

Ann, have a great holiday! Can't wait to hear about your trip. I love the Chicken and will give this a try. I've never heard of baking a Chicken with beer. Love it!!

Val said...

You had me at "Stuff the remaining can beer up the chicken’s ass."

Darn good looking chicken - in spite of the abuse.

Safe trip!

Lorraine @NotQuiteNigella said...

Haha I made one of these too, there's something inherently so comical about these chickens isn't there! Plus they taste good!

luckytastebuds said...

Oh my gosh you're getting married so SOON!!!! :) I'm so excited for you! Too bad I don't know you in real life so I can come to my first wedding ever! hahaha just kidding!!

I love the pictures of your beer can chicken! I've never seen such vulgar words (up its ass?) on your site, but i think i like it! heehee. I can never take good pictures of my bf's beer can chicken. You seriously have great skills!

Dragon said...

The chicken looks so happy in your oven! Thanks for the recipe.

noobcook said...

congrats on your upcoming big day! the chicken looks delicious, I like beer flavoured foods.

Chowhound said...

This chicken looks wicked. I should try making this actually...hmn...

Jescel said...

heard so much about chicken cooked this way but I have yet to try it. yours looks good. Congrats on your wedding...can't wait to hear about it.

Ari (Baking and Books) said...

Not only is that a very cool way to cook a chicken but the name cracks me up!

ThePurpleFoodie said...

I've seen this kind of chicken before and it looks like so much fun.

Anonymous said...

I have actually done this before, but not in the oven, on a Smoker outside. And the meat really does come out tender and moist! Great post!

Orce Serrano Hams said...

The new way to cook a bird!, we are currently sourcing terracotta cazuelas with a "tower" in the centre to cook the chicken to same effect. As said above the idea has been around for ages just hasn't cought on yet. Great photo's yet again and thanks for sharing.

Robin Sue said...

Where'd you go? Hope all is well.

Gravity Gardener said...

I love this recipe. It turned out well on the grill. My pictures look similar to yours.

pigpigscorner said...

Gravity Gardener: You made it on a grill!! That's even better, wish I had one =)

Swee San said...

wow seriously.. the beer can doesnt explode ?

pigpigscorner said...

nop it doesn't explode, the alcohol just evaporates and the liquid keeps the chicken moist =)

Nate @ House of Annie said...

Beer can chicken is one of my favorite ways of cooking chicken. It is so flavorful and moist! And there are infinite flavors you can add to the beer and the chicken.

Only thing I would be wary of is the can - sometimes they're lined with plastic that will not survive the heat.

pigpigscorner said...

oh I never noticed any beer cans lined with plastic before, have to keep an eye out next time!
