After Hannah picked such a delicious and successful meal last week, Owen wanted a turn. So he began flipping through the same cookbook that she found her recipe in and he came across Grilled Beer Can Chicken. He proudly walked the recipe over to Ryan and I and asked if we could make it. Of course!
We'd made beer can chicken before, but not with a spice rub. In the past we'd simply put a chicken on a nearly full can of beer and grilled it. This particular recipe from Cook's Illustrated called for a spice rub and the addition of bay leaves to the beer. I must admit - it was very tasty! Good job picking this one out, Owen! It's a keeper!
With school having let out earlier this week, we haven't been too adventurous in the kitchen yet. So far we've just been enjoying the schedule-free days and enjoying the beautiful stretch of weather we've been fortunate to have. But, perhaps this coming week we'll try out a few new things.
