It's so flavorful and delicious that will be great for any special occasion and yet it is so easy that it's also great for any day of the week.  I hope you give it a try, I'm sure you will fall in love with this one!

Serves 4-6
  •  1 Whole Chicken cut in pieces
  • 2 beers 12oz each
  • The Juice and Zest of  2 limes
  • 3-4 Tablespoons Fresh Rosemary
  • Salt to taste and Ground Black Pepper to taste
  • 2 Tablespoons Melted Butter (optional)

Rinse the chicken with cold water. Pat it dry with paper towels. Season the chicken pieces with plenty of salt, ground black pepper to taste and the zest of two limes.  Pour one of the beers over the chicken pieces and also pour in the juice of two limes.  Then  sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the Rosemary over the chicken pieces. Now rub the rest of the Rosemary all over  the chicken flesh, below the chicken skin.

And in a small plate or bowl,combine plenty of salt and ground black pepper and rub this mixture all over the chicken pieces, on the skin and on the chicken flesh.  Now with a small knife, poke the chicken pieces a couple times each, then pour the second beer over the chicken pieces, try to pour it on the chicken flesh below the skin... just so the beer can get right into the wholes you poked on the chicken. Marinate these for at least 3 hours. For a more flavorful chicken, marinate overnight, the longer you marinate the better it will be taste.

Preheat the oven to 400ºF

Cook the chicken with the skin face down, for 20 minutes. Then flip the chicken so the skin will be facing up, and continue to cook for another 20 minutes.

Then set the oven to 450ºF. Brush the chicken with melted better, and continue to cook for another 15-20 minutes or until the chicken is well cooked.

The internal temperature of the chicken should be 170-175ºF.

Once the chicken is completely cooked. You are ready to enjoy!
