Beer Butt Chicken
This may look obscene but this 4-ingredient beer butt chicken tastes fantastic. Crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Even the chicken breasts are kept moist. The can of beer slid into the cavity of the chicken plays an important factor in keeping the meat juicy. Inspired by my all-time favorite chef, Jamie Oliver. Do you know that, actually, all you need are salt, olive oil and pepper to make the best basic roast chicken? So yep, only the minimal ingredients are used here and yet not compromising on the taste. You will like it. I promise :)
Oh yes, just like to share, if you aren't ready to prepare this at home, I have a place to recommend to you. The handlebar, a biker-themed bar/restaurant located at 57 Jalan Mempurong, Sembawang. They serve beer butt chicken too. The only down side, you will need your own transportation to access the place coz it's kind of ulu :P I find it an interesting place whereby most of the interior designs, decors and even their juice blender are modified from car/motorbike parts. Outdoor dining is available. How cool is that? Under the star, by the sea, good food and great companions. That's what I call, LIFE! :)
1 kampung chicken
3 tbs olive oil
1-1.5 tsp salt (I used sea salt)...
1 can of beer (Note we will only be using half of the content. Please see point 2 below on usage.)
pepper to taste (optional, I didn't use any.)
1) Rub olive oil all over chicken, follow by salt.
2) Open the can of beer using a can opener and pour out half of the content. And sit the chicken on the can as seen.
3) Let stand for 20 minutes before baking in the pre-heated oven at 200c for 1 1/2 hour.
