Best Ever Beer Can Chicken Hip2Save

Beer Can Chicken makes roasting a chicken at home super tasty and super easy! Not only does the can act as a great platform to keep your chicken upright, but the beer within the can also keeps the meat moist and adds wonderful flavor. Want to skip the beer? Try root beer or another soda instead for similar results!

Easy Roasted Beer Can Chicken


Seasoning Rub: 1 teaspoon garlic, 2 teaspoons paprika, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, 1 teaspoon oregano, 1/4 teaspoon Tarragon, 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard, 1 teaspoon onion powder

2 tablespoon Olive Oil

1 whole chicken (about 5-6 pounds)

1 can of beer
beer can chciken
Directions: Mix together spices. Clean chicken and remove insides. Pat chicken dry with paper towels. Pour out 1/2 of beer and place chicken upright on top of beer can in a roasting pan. Rub chicken with olive oil and spices. Pour a little of the beer in the roasting pan. Roast in the oven at 425 degrees for about an hour and 15 minutes until brown and internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.  Note: I like to baste the chicken several times while it is cooking in the oven.

This type of chicken is my family’s favorite because of the amazingly flavorful and crispy outside skin. The beer really does add a unique flavor and makes for a wonderful “sauce”. Leftovers are perfect the next day for chicken burritos or to serve with a salad.

What is the HIP List?

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply add the post to your HIP List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the HIP List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, you first must head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back later to, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account.


When logged into your account, you will then see your HIP List on every page.


If you're wanting to print a certain deal, article, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. That will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include in your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you!


If there are deals that you are not interested in keeping on your list, just click on the minus button to remove it.


Now, just print your customized HIP list whenever you're ready to go shopping and snag some "Hip" deals!
