  1. Rinse a can of your favorite 12 oz. beer, pat dry and set aside.
  2. Pat dry your thawed out Perdue chicken. Season chicken with salt and pepper to your taste.
  3. Open beer and place in chicken cavity upright. Roast upright at 350°F until skin is browned and crisp. Note: You are not pouring the beer into cavity, the heat of the oven will cause the beer to evaporate into the chicken, infusing it into the skin and meat. Yummy!
  4. Warm up your Farmhouse Original mashed potatoes.
  5. Enjoy your delicious beer roasted chicken and mashed potatoes!

Chef Ernesto Tips:

*Chef Ernesto recommends using a dark beer for a richer and more sultry taste. Try a local Kona brew blend found right here in Chef Zone.
*Want to spruce up your mashed potatoes? Chef Ernesto’s trick is to heat up the mashed potatoes, add butter and a hint of nutmeg. Simple yet delicious…
