If you do have a bbq pit with a full lid, pile the charcoal on the inner corner of the pit, light it. Heat should reach about 180 degree celsius. Cook the chicken in the corner of the pit that has no charcoal. Brush marinate on it every half and hour. After 1.5hours of cooking turn the chicken so that it browns evenly. Cook it for about 3hours on the pit.
Ingredients (Serves 2-3)
1 Chicken (I prefer to use free range)
1 can of beer
1/2 a french onion
(You can basically use anything you fancy for the marinate, whatever u can find at home, I used the following)
1/4 can of beer
2 table spoon of oyster sauce
A dash of sherry
How to cook
Preheat oven at 180 degrees celsius
Wash chicken, Cut onions into cubes
Rub chicken with a little salt and pepper
Use only 1/2 can of beer
Stuff beer can with 1/2 beer into chicken's "ass", make sure your onions stay intact inside the chicken's cavity (So now your chicken is standing and ready to rock) This actually allow the beer to infuse into the flesh of the chicken during cooking and keep it moist from the inside and crispy on the outside during the long cooking time.
Stand the chicken in a baking tray
Brush on marinate on the chicken, make sure u coat it well.
Usher your chicken on to the "dance floor" (oven)
Let it dance for 30mins, brush on marinate again.
While waiting, fry the fries in hot oil for 5-7 mins on high heat, depending on how crispy you want it
Keep brushing it with marinate every 30 mins for about 2hours or till it's beautifully browned and crispy.
Serve with Salad or Fries. I used the frozen fries my dad had brought for me recently.
