Speaking about his recipe and Ireland’s Hottest Grill Master, Chef John Relihan said: ““I am thrilled to share my Beer Can Chicken recipe in partnership with ALDI. People often ask me what the addition of the beer brings to the recipe and as you can imagine the beer lends additional moisture and layers of incredible flavours to the chicken while it cooks. I recommend selecting a fruity, citrus beer or an IPA. As the liquid heats up, it creates a wonderful steam, and the aromas and flavours infuse with the chicken – It is pure magic!
I’m a huge fan of ALDI’s Bord Bia Quality Assured Irish Meats. That’s why I am so thrilled to team up with ALDI to help find Ireland’s Hottest Grill Master. I am seriously impressed at the standard of the entries that have been submitted so far – even if it makes the job of picking one winner that bit more difficult!”
