Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner!

We have a winner in the 
Shelby Keith....come on down!
Here's the recipe that started it all....
Beer But Chicken
It originally used a can of beer, 
but this is so much easier because you make it
in the oven.
Use your favorite seasoning mix or try this one.
 Beer, oil, 3t house seasoning, 3t seasoned salt,
 a sprig of rosemary. Rinse and dry the chicken.
 Pour the beer into the center well to about 3/4 full. 
Add a sprig of rosemary and whatever herbs you
 like. I also have oregano and sage growing in my 
herb garden, so I added those. Combine the house 
seasoning and seasoned salt. Add about a teaspoon
 of seasoning mixture to the well.
 Rub your chicken with oil and add about 1 t
 of seasoning mixture to the inside and
 sprinkle another1 t all over the outside. 
Slide the chicken down over the well. 
Plug the neck opening with a little foil. 
Put the chicken cooker into a COLD oven
 and then turn the oven to 350. Now...
put you feet up and drink the rest of your beer. 
Roast for 1-1/2 hours.  until nicely browned.
Let rest for 10 minutes before carving. 
Serve with the juices.

House Seasoning
1 C salt
1/4 C pepper
1/4 C garlic powder
Combine and store in a 
large shaker container.
Goes with everything.
