How it works:

While following along with this week’s meal planning blog, please keep in mind that your grocery list may vary slightly from ours depending on what you need for this week’s meals or what you do not already have on hand that we do from previously meal planning creations, as well as diet restrictions or alterations to our recipes. Reminder that we also calculate the average prices for items based on the weekly ad for all locations or with prices averaged out from CobornsDelivers.com. However, this week of meal planning is sure to give you 7 meals for a family of 4 all for under $75! That’s an awesome amount of savings! Read on to see what we have prepared for you this week!

Meal #1 – Beer Can Oven Baked Chicken With Sweet Potato Fries & Corn


Beer Can Oven Baked Chicken
Author: 
 
Ingredients
  • 12 Oz. Beer or Ginger Ale
  • 2 Tbsp Dry Barbecue-flavored Seasoning or Rub
  • 3.5 Lbs. Gold’n Plump® Whole Chicken
  • 1 Tbsp Vegetable Oil
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Open can of beer or ginger ale; using pointed tip of bottle opener, puncture two holes in top of can. Pour ¾ cup of beer or ginger ale out of can; drink or discard.
  3. Sprinkle 2 teaspoons barbecue-flavored seasoning into beer or ginger ale in can.
  4. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon barbecue-flavored seasoning inside chicken.
  5. Brush outside of chicken with vegetable oil; rub with remaining 1 tablespoon seasoning.
  6. Place beer or ginger ale can in 9x9-inch ungreased baking dish. Hold the chicken upright (with the opening of the body cavity at the bottom) and lower it onto the can so the can fits into the cavity. Pull chicken legs forward to form a tripod.
  7. Place in oven and bake chicken until no longer pink near bone (165°F on an instant read thermometer inserted near the thigh bone) and juices run clear, about 1 hour 5 minutes to 1 hour 15 minutes. Carefully remove chicken in pan from oven.
  8. Let chicken rest for 5 minutes, then carefully lift it off the can, using tongs and paper towels (works best with 2 people). Place chicken on a platter or carving board. Let rest for another 10 minutes before carving. Discard beer or ginger ale in can.
