  • Servings: 4

  • Main Ingredient: Chicken


  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 2 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. dry mustard
  • 1 tsp. Accent® Flavor Enhancer
  • 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1/2 can beer (room temperature)

Preheat grill medium-high heat. Mix sugar, chili powder, onion powder, paprika, mustard, Accent, and ground pepper in a small bowl. Place half-full can of beer in center of plate. Rinse chicken under cold running water. Discard giblets and neck; drain and pat dry. Place chicken over beer can with legs at bottom; keep upright. Rub 1 teaspoon of seasoning mix into the top cavity of chicken. Rub remaining seasoning over surface of chicken. Preheat a grill. Place chicken on grill standing up on the beer can over indirect flames with the lid closed.

Cover chicken with aluminum foil and set aside for 10 minutes before slicing.
