Instructions
  1. Combine the spice mix together and divide it between two small bowls. Set one aside for now.
  2. Add the lemon juice and zest, and olive oil, to half of the spice mix.
  3. Brush the lemon/spice mixture all over the chicken, and set aside in the fridge for about 30 minutes to allow the flavors to infuse the bird.
  4. Take a shallow roasting pan, and empty about half the can of beer into the pan.
  5. Add the remaining half of the spice mix to the remaining beer in the can, and swish it around a little to mix.
  6. Now, set the beer can in the middle of the baking dish, and then set the chicken on top of the can so it stands up on it.
  7. Set the entire baking dish in the oven at about 350 degrees Fahrenheit, or medium-high on the grill.
  8. Cook for about 70 to 90 minutes. The chicken will be golden brown, tender, and cooked all the way through.
Recipe Notes

Note: Use your beer of choice – you can try Sapporo for an Asian flair, or a full-flavored Irish or German beer.
