Roasted Drunken Chicken

Roasted Drunken Chicken
as posted by Vrsherren in WFD 08/06:

1 whole chicken
1 bottle of beer
4 potatoes washed & thick sliced
1 bag baby carrots
2 Tbsp. grilling spice
1 Tbsp minced garlic
1 onion chopped
salt & pepper

Place chicken in a roasting pan. With a butter knife, slide knife between the skin and the meat without poking a hole as far as you can. Mix the beer and the grilling spice,salt & pepper. Using a baster squirt beer mixture under skin as much as it will hold, and fill cavity w/ the remaining beer mixture. Place 2 baby carrots in cavity and 1/4 onion (chopped). Sprinkle remaining carrots around the chicken follow with the potatoes.
Roast on 325` for 2 1/2 to 3 hours (basting if needed) or untill chicken is done and tender

The beer will make it very tender without drying it out, also makes it easy to seperate the drippings (grease) from the juices which can be used to make gravy now or soup if frozen.
