If you love crispy chicken skin, this is the only way.

And there are several ways to end up with one — you can roast it whole, cut out the backbone and flatten it, or cut it into parts for quick cooking. But one of the most genius methods of all? Roasting a chicken on a beer can.
Generally, a roasted chicken only gets crispy on the side that faces up, but sitting the chicken on a beer can means the entire bird gets deliciously golden brown. It's worth it, and very easy to do.
You might have heard that the steam from the hot beer makes the meat moist and delicious, but the truth is the beer doesn't heat up enough to cause steam. The real beauty of this method is the skin is exposed to the air on all sides.
The other advantage is that you probably have a can of beer lying around and not a vertical roaster. Best of all? This works well in the oven and on the grill.
