About this recipe: A chicken is stuffed with an orange, before being roasted with potatoes, carrots, garlic, onions and lager. The resulting roast chicken is moist and juicy. Save the juices to make a lager based gravy, if desired.
i liked it ok but loved it after i made some changes. first i left out the oil and water as they were not needed. i poured 1/4 of the beer in a glass oven pan then 1/4 can of chicken broth to follow. then placed the chicken in the pan surrounding it with red potatoes(quartered), baby carrots, and half an onion (sliced), poured the remaining beer and both over it all. then i seasoned the chicken and vegetables with pepper, garlic powder, seasoned salt and zatarans. then i zested the orange on top of the chicken, poked holes in the orange then put it in the opening. i followed the baking instructions and it came out awesome, although the vegetables may need to cook a little longer(remove chicken and cover, cook veggies 15 mins at 450 for electric oven) its a must have at least twice a month in my household! - 16 Jul 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I make Roasted Chicken all the time and this recipe was boring and really had no taste. With the two temperture changes, and it being covered the first hr., it did come out moist. Moist is always good but, bland is not. For those who have not tried this yet,,,add some spices of your choice and I'm sure it would get a better rating. - 25 Mar 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I love chicken. Never tried a chicken recipe I didn't like, but I "loved" this one. All I added were 2 tsps. of minced fresh rosemary. 1 on the chicken and 1 on the vegi's. - 24 Mar 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
