Beer Can Chicken


Beer Can Chicken is a pretty simple favorite at our house! It’s super moist, has simple prep and can be done on the grill – so my hubby is cooking dinner and not me! But I started to wonder if I couldn’t jazz it up a bit, and decided to try green chile! This recipe was a huge hit at our house, and I’m happy to be able to share it with you all!

A delicious recipe for beer can chicken with a kick!

  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • ½ tsp brown sugar sugar
For The Rub

For the Chicken
  1. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.
  2. Rub the chicken (inside and out) with the vegetable oil. Season the chicken with rub mixture, make sure you remember to get the rub thoroughly coating the inside of the chicken to!. Insert the onions and chiles under the chicken skin.
  3. Take your can of beer and pour out about 1/4 of the can, then set your chicken over the top of the can and carefully transport to the center of the grill! (The can will prop the chicken just fine.)
