  • Summary

    If juiciness is your goal, pop open a frosty one, set your chicken on top of the can, and then leave the pair alone in the privacy of your oven. The stout makes the meat incredibly moist and gives it a subtle sweet-and-malty flavor. A little leftover beer blended with a couple of tablespoons of fig jam transforms the pan drippings into a rich, tasty gravy.

    Ingredients

    • 1 whole chicken (about 4 1/2 pounds)
    • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
    • Coarse salt
    • 1 can stout, such as Guinness
    • 1 small bunch fresh thyme
    • 1/4 cup water
    • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
    • 2 tablespoons fig jam
