Ok, so, I thought I’d share what has become my current favorite meal on the face of the earth – this amazing, crispy beer-can chicken.
In my never ending search for new meals to cook, I recently ran across an amazing recipe for crispy chicken wings that you baked in the oven. And their top-secret ingredient is…
I know, I couldn’t believe it either! Apparently the baking powder works by pulling the moisture out of the chicken’s skin, giving it an amazing crispy texture. That means your chicken will taste like it’s fried, but without all those extra calories!
I read this recipe and thought to myself, “If it works for wings, why not a whole chicken?!”. So I gathered my spices, picked up a big juicy bird, and the rest has been history.
The spice mix for this recipe is truly magical. It’s the closest I thing I’ve ever seen to fairy dust.
This stuff helps your chicken come out of the oven just as tender and juicy as you’d expect from a beer can chicken, but with a skin so crispy and brown that you’d think it was deep fried! Word to the wise – make sure you use up all of the spice rub available, or you’ll be cheating yourself out of some amazing flavor!
So carve yourself off some of this golden meaty goodness, and enjoy chasing all those crispy bits and running juices all over your plate. Bon apetit!
