The Amazing Chicken Throne

(a.k.a. Beer Can Chicken)
One of my most popular items at the Farmers Market is the Chicken Throne. Baking a chicken on a ceramic chicken throne will result in a succulent chicken with a crispy skin. Put beer, wine, or fruit juice with spices in the center cup and then slip the chicken (a 3-4 pound fryer) over the cup. Rub a bit of olive oil and seasoning on the skin. Put the chicken in a cold oven, set the oven to 350 degrees F and bake uncovered for about 1.5 hours. Let the chicken sit for at least 15 minutes before carving. Then carve off the most moist, succulent chicken you've ever had, with just a hint of the flavoring from the liquid you poured in the cup. 

The chicken throne is wheel-thrown by hand in a one piece construction method to make it more durable. The pouring spout allows you to pour the drippings off easily. Each chicken throne that I make is unique because it is hand made! 

To find recipes, do a search on the internet with the term “beer can chicken”.
