This is a variation on beer can chicken. Drunk Jerk chicken is a Caribbean twist on the classic drunk chicken recipe. A bit of jerk gives this moist and yummy chicken recipe a whole new facelift.
Choosing your Beer:
Now, surprisingly there are many people in the blogosphere who argue that beer can chicken is a gimmick or myth, or in some way bad. We encourage you to research it if you are interested in hearing the various arguments. We’re big fans though. So, does using beers make a big difference? As far as we can tell, not really. Frankly, we use Medalla beer the most (Puerto Rico’s local beer) and it works just fine. But a malty beer is also a good option.
