Root Beer-Can Chicken

This is a family-friendly take on beer-can chicken in which we use an opened root beer can to support a whole bird on the grill. The liquid inside the can adds moisture, resulting in succulent, tender meat. Complete the meal with roasted red potatoes and a sweettart broccoli slaw.

Price: $2.48 per serving

Pantry Checklist:
• Hungarian sweet paprika
• Brown sugar
• Garlic powder
• Onion powder
• Ground red pepper
• Chili powder
• Ground allspice
