I missed you. We are almost settled in the new place.
We can drink coffee at the beautiful balcony. There is a lot of light, so no more excuses for not enough light for photos. Well, I even can take photos in my kitchen, below you will find some samples.
The recipe I want to show you today is simple, delicious and as my friend said a little bit disturbing as well. The meat is moist, you can do it in no time.
My mom brought this recipe from one of her friends, well it’s not even a recipe, rather method.
Later on it become more popular in Poland because of a popular culinary show.
I also must admit to something. I was the bad cook, I forgot to scrap labels from the bottles. I’m ashamed. Not only it looks like a beer advertisement but I haven’t noticed it until I started writing down the recipe. This what happens when you are too excited about blogging about something. So please forgive me. But I want to share this recipe with you so much, that I will show you it anyway.
And remember to to do it. You don’t want to eat paper, do you?
Chicken on a beer, wine or even water bottle
- 1 whole chicken (our was around 1,5 kg)
- 500 ml/ pint beer in a bottle (as well you can try small wine bottle, or fill 500 ml bottle with water, we used lager)
- sweet paprika
- or any other your favourite spices
- Fill a roasting pan with a 1-cm of water. Scrap labels from the bottle. Place a bottle of beer in the middle of the pan and open it.
- Remove the chicken giblets. Remove any excess fat and leftover pin feathers. Rinse chicken inside and out under cold running water. Dry chicken thoroughly with paper towels.
- Sprinkle chicken with salt, pepper, paprika, or your other favourite spices. For the best results put the chicken into the fridge for at least an hour.
- Place the chicken at the bottle (legs down).
- Place the pan with the chicken gently into a preheated oven to 160°C/140°C fan.
- Roast until skin is deep golden brown and crisp and the juices run clear when pierced. It’s around 1 hour per 1 kilo of chicken.
- Be careful when removing the chicken from the oven. Take the chicken gently from the bottle and slice into pieces.
Chicken on the bottle baked some time ago in Krakow.
