Ingredients

  • 2 whole chickens (about 4 lb. each)
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 12-oz. cans beer

Preparation

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Rinse chickens inside and out; pat dry thoroughly.
  2. 2. Mix paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, thyme, salt and pepper. Rub chickens (inside and outside) with spice mixture.
  3. 3. Pour about 2 oz. beer out of each can. Set cans upright in a roasting pan large enough to hold both chickens without touching. Set chickens so that cans fit inside cavities, legs facing down. Roast chickens until juices run clear, about 1 hour 15 minutes, basting after 30 minutes.
  4. 4. Carefully remove chickens from beer cans and let rest for 10 to 15 minutes. Carve into portions and serve.
