Drunk chicken is an interesting and fairly simple technique for preparing a whole chicken carcass, when an open can of beer is inserted into its cavity and the chicken is grilled vertically. This method contributes to uniform roasting, the chicken inside is saturated with a wonderful aroma of hops and spices and becomes especially juicy. For a larger flavor, place a sprig of fresh rosemary in the beer. And the carcass itself can only be grated with spicy salt and Paula Ding’s signature seasoning from salt, black pepper and garlic powder. The proportions of spices for homemade seasoning are indicated at the end of the recipe. Keep the leftovers in a jar and use in your other dishes.
