"Harold will eat anything but only drinks Budweiser™. I discovered cooking with beer when he spent all our grocery money on it one week. Anyway, it's quick and easy and you can substitute chicken with anything."

There are better recipes but AgnusPillsbury's profile gets 5 stars!
Not the best chicken I have ever tasted. You don't need to use 2 cans of beer. One can is sufficient. The herbs and spices float off the chicken while cooking so it mostly tastes like beer. I would never make again.
Very juicy chicken, but not much flavor to it. Don't need so much beer. I probably won't make this again.
I'm pretty sure this recipe and profile is a joke...rating is for profile, not chicken!
I prepared this recipe for a family gathering and everyone liked it, though my brother asked if I had any beer left over for drinking and my step-father said it was a waste of beer. It didn't have much of a beer flavor, which is good because I detest beer, but it gave it a mild yeasty flavor and it was moist and fell off the bone. I cooked it closer to two hours because I had two pounds of chicken and it was still slightly frozen.
I give this 4 stars but only because I tweak it. Puncture chicken and marinate chicken in beer, salt and pepper overnight in the refrigerator. Rub with rosemary, parseley thyme, and cloves, and a sprinkle of extra salt and pepper. Bake at 300 degrees for 2 hours.
I know there have been some jokes about this recipe but it WAS really good! It is a little hard to get it browned b/c of the beer bath but if you put it under the broiler for a few mins, that should help brown it up. The flavor was very flavorful, I added salt and pepper along with some garlic powder. In fact, I am going to make it again tomorrow! Thanks Agnuspillsbury for a yummy way to make the bird.
although i question the validity of this womans profile and claims, i have to say that cooking chicken in beer is indeed very good if done correctly. try using fresh sprigs of rosemary stuffed into the chicken. then empty half of a can of beer and sit the chicken upright on the can...bake until falling off the bone delicious. not a rosemary fan? season the darn thing with anything you like....its a 100% everytime tender chicken!!

This tangy summer chicken has so much flavor (and so little fat).
Pomegranate juice makes a great marinade for baked chicken.
