Beer Can Chicken in the oven?

It is pouring buckets out there and windy to boot. I'd like to do a beer can chicken tonight, do you think I could do the beer can chicken in the oven?

Absolutely. Take a look at Bundt Pan beer can chicken. You can make an entire dish w/ vegetables using beer or wine.

Haven't done a search here, but have made it (TNT). They are all pretty much the same.


bundt pan chicken - Google Search

And, you can do bunt pan chicken on the grill, as well.

I've done it many times. It doesn't have the smoky flavor that you get from the grill, but it tastes just as good.

Sometimes I use an empty beer/soda can and fill it with white wine and tarragon for a really heavenly alternative. I've also interchanged fresh rosemary for the tarragon with equally tasty results.

OMG Cerise, that looks DIVINE! Thanks!

Katie, I'm actually using a coke can cuz all the beer in my house is in bottles. I'd not given much thought to the liquid I was going to use. My veggie side is going to be balsamic flavored so I need to complement the flavors in the chicken marinade. Any suggestions?

What a brilliant idea to use wine and tarragon for roasting the chicken Katie H. Now why didn't I think of that

The beer can method is simply a means to keep the chicken vertical. It could be used with about any roasting method. In an oven I think you could set a dish under it and collect the juices, then use that in a sauce a la minute.

Check out the vertical roaster. The Bundt pan is cool, 'cause you could make the whole dinner in it (i.e. cut up potatoes, carrots, onions).

I have cooked it many times in the oven, it works great although I dont use the bundt pan, I just use the regular method.

A beer can is nice and cheap for keeping it vertical. I prefer to use a chicken roasting stand myself. A test site did a comparison using the beer can method and without. They found no real benefit, and were just short of calling it an urban legend. They found that the beer in the can did nothing to flavor the chicken.

If using the beer can method and a full sized chicken, I'd suggest buying a tall boy 16 oz can.

I'm wondering if you could do that upside down. That way the dark meat would be the most exposed to heat and cook faster. It would also mean that the juices inside the chicken would drain towards the white meat.

That's what I was thinking. I imagine the breast would be more moist and tender that way. GMTA
