|Here's a really yummy way to barbecue your chicken, even if you don't want to grill outside in the cold winter weather!|
Recipe By: Jerry Truxell on FoodTV
1 whole roaster chicken (5-6 lbs.)
PREPARE BBQ SAUCE FIRST: In a large kettle, combine all sauce ingredeitns and bring slowly to a simmer. Simmer uncovered until reduced by 1/3 of original volume. Cool completely before using. Yields about 2 quarts.
CHICKEN: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Rinse chicken thoroughly under cold running water; pat dry with paper towels. Season inside and out with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Using a can opener, open the beer can and place in the center of a medium-sized pan. Carefully place the chicken upright on top of the can, so the can is inside the chicken cavity. Roast in the oven 1 hour, or until internal temperature of 145-150 degrees. Glaze with BBQ sauce and finish cooking on the grill. Can also continue roasting in the oven, brushing occasionally with more glaze about 20-30 minutes longer or until cooked through and 170 degrees internal temperature.
