Acadia's Cherry Sherry "beer Can" Chicken
110 mins (prep 20, cooking 90)
11 ingredients
6 servings
I defrosted a fryer from the freezer and didn't have anything to stuff it with, and we don't drink beer. I had cherry soda in cans so I poured the soda out of the can into a glass. Then I poured 1/2 cup back into the can plus I added a 1/4 cup of cream sherry (sweet) to the can. I gave the chicken a rub on the outside and then grilled it for 1.5 hours and it was the moistest chicken we have ever had. Now the tricky part the juices are red from the cherry soda, so you need to use a thermometer to make sure the chicken is done. Temperature should be 165 degrees F in the thigh.
