Ginger Ale-Can Chicken

    I consider myself a very good cook and love finding new recipes. This one was on my desk for a few weeks and I was very excited to try it as I LOVE ginger ale and roast whole chickens every few weeks. When this got to the table it was very moist...and tasted horrible. So bad that we ended up picking at the food and then just throwing it all away. It wasn't even worthy enough for my lab (who eats everything) - he ate a piece and walked away from the rest. Now my ingredients were fresh, the chicken was cooked to the right temp - it was just a horrible combination of ingredients. :(

    I'm not sure how long we have been making this recipe but we absolutely LOVE it! One of our favorite things to do is use one of the chickens and make a chicken salad with it. In particular, Paula Dean's Curry Chicken Salad!

    I have made this many times and it always comes out great! Have also done it with Dr. Pepper--my kids like it better that way. When I make it on the grill I use a smoker packet to add a smoky flavor to the chicken. I like to use the leftovers in the Chicken Enchiladas recipe--that's also a great recipe.
