Beer Can Chicken - Without the Beer

Have you heard of beer can chicken? Even though the candida diet doesn't allow alcohol, you can still make chicken with this easy and tasty method! Here's how!

1 fresh whole chicken
5 Tbsp. ghee
garlic salt to taste
empty beer or soda can (yes, you'll have to dump it out - don't drink it!!)

Preheat oven to 400ºF or preheat grill. Melt ghee in a saucepan. Fill the can about halfway full of water. Pour in about 3 Tbsp. of the melted ghee. Brush chicken with the remaining ghee and sprinkle evenly with garlic salt. Now comes the fun part: Place the can right side up in a baking pan or cookie sheet with sides. Now fit the cavity of the chicken - also right side up - over the top of the can so that the chicken sits or stands upright. Now you can either resist or cave in to the urge to take a picture. *grin*
Bake or grill until browned and crispy and till no longer pink in the center, about 45 to 60 minutes. Carefully remove chicken off the can (after taking another picture). Cut as usual and enjoy!
