Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Poke holes all over the orange with a fork, and insert the orange into the cavity of the chicken. Place the chicken into a deep roasting pan or Dutch oven, and coat well with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper. Place the potatoes, garlic cloves, carrots, and onions all around the chicken, and drizzle 1 more tablespoon of oil on the vegetables. Dissolve the chicken bouillon in the water, and pour into the pan with the beer. Cover the pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour; uncover the pan, and baste the chicken with the juices in the pan. Return the pan to the oven, uncovered, and cook for an additional 30 to 45 minutes, basting with juices every 15 minutes.
  4. Raise the oven heat to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C), and bake the chicken until the skin is golden brown, about 30 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven, and remove the vegetables from around the chicken. Drain off the juices to make gravy, if desired, and cover the chicken with the pan lid. Allow the chicken to stand about 10 minutes before serving with the vegetables.

I love chicken. Never tried a chicken recipe I didn't like, but I "loved" this one. All I added were 2 tsps. of minced fresh rosemary. 1 on the chicken and 1 on the vegi's.

Making it again tomorrow night - my husband loves it and it makes great sandwiches too. IMPORTANT NOTE... I have tried this recipe with different lager's and it makes a BIG difference in the ...

Like many others I added fresh herbs (Sage/Rosemary/Thyme) for a bit more flavour. We stuck with the oil as it increases the browning. To stick with an October/Halloween theme we used "Vampire ...

A bit bland even though I noticed the other reviews and added fresh rosemary, oregano and sage. And it needed way more salt and pepper than I thought. I used Blue Moon beer which goes really wel...

I liked this recipe, but not much flavor right away. It tasted better the next day. Next time will try adding more spices, but will definitely make again.

I have to admit...I never liked mixing fruit with meat, but thought I would give this one a go. Very moist but also bland with the exception of the very slight sweetness from both the lager and...

I used a lemon instead of an orange and zested it first for coating the outside of the bird. I also used a hefeweizen instead of lager (lemon and hef is a natural combo) I also threw in some sw...
