  • 1 whole chicken washed
  • 1 red green, and yellow bell pepper, cut into small squares
  • 2 lb small red potatoes quartered
  • 1 can 12-ounce beer, opened (or use white wine, or chicken stock)
  • 1/2 cup avocado oil
  • 4 tbsp homemade Italian seasoning
  • sea salt
  • ground black pepper


  • Preheat oven or grill to 375
  • Rinse the chicken inside and out and remove any giblets, pat dry with paper towels and set aside.
  • Chop up peppers and potatoes and place them in a roasting pan
  • Clear a place to set the beer can in the middle of the pan and position the chicken cavity over the beer can with legs in front, so the chicken is sitting upright.
  • Drizzle chicken with avocado oil and spread evenly over the skin (excess oil will drip into the veggies)
  • Generously season the skin with salt, pepper, and italian seasoning.
  • Toss the veggies in the excess oil, and seasonings (and add additional if you wish)
  • Place roasting pan in the oven and cook until internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165 (about 1 1/2 hours)


You can also cook this on the grill! Use a grill roasting pan (with holes in the bottom) and maintain internal temperature at 375
