This beer can chicken recipe is so easy, you'll want to try no matter what the season. A simple rub and thyme sprigs enhance the natural flavor of chicken, which slow roasts on the grill with partial lid cover. Be sure to carve and serve the whole bird immediately — meat should fall right off the bone!
The cozy combination of maple and bourbon is a timeless classic! Sweet and bold flavors balance each other out, and create a perfectly juicy Cornish hen. If you have never made Cornish hens before, it is incredibly easy! The hens taste exactly like the chicken you’re used to, but they cook faster and are perfect for individual servings. The kids always get a kick out of getting their “very own chicken!” for the first time, too. Serve these hens over a bed of rice, with a simple salad or both. If you have any leftovers, you can shred the meat and include it in delicious sandwiches, soups or over salads throughout the week! Do not worry about including bourbon in your recipe if you have children: All alcohol will cook off while the hens are baking. But, you can always leave it out, and still have a juicy, flavorful meal!
Can you say Thanksgiving worthy, or what?! This dish is perfect for special occasions, parties or even holiday dinners. But you’ll probably want to make it more often than that! This tasty meal is a two-in-one treat. It takes a little time, but is so worth it — especially when there is wine involved! Make your favorite sangria the night before, red or white, and sip as you cook. The flavors of this dish are divine; the classic, crispy chicken stays perfectly moist and the stuffing is unlike anything you’ve tried before. Make sure to add bits of color, like fresh parsley, whole cranberries or even sprigs of sage, when you plate.
