Jude’s Beer Bum Chicken Dinner

Jude’s Beer Bum Chicken Dinner

Yeap, after some very late night calls again this week it was time for home-working today and cooking dinner. Because of Jude’s infatuation with his favourite restaurant that he calls Chicken Bum and because Cold Storage had no lamb (my original idea) I made up this recipe for the gang. Jude’s Beer Bum Chicken Dinner. It’s a belter. It’s simple. It looks incredible.

Low and slow folks, low and slow. And no, I do not mean Sous Vide – I mean Reverse Searing.

Jude's Beer Bum Chicken Dinner

I have never seen a bird so happy to have something stuffed up her bum!!!

This will easily feed a family of 6 – just add some steamed rice and you are done, my friends. You will need;

  • 1 whole chicken
  • 2 packets of fresh Thyme
  • 2 packets of fresh Rosemary
  • 2″ knob of butter
  • 4 Chorizo sausages
  • 6 Garlic bulbs
  • 1 whole sweetcorn
  • 1 packet of button mushrooms
  • 1 small can of beer
  • 1 packet of good quality ham or Jamon
  • Sea salt & cracked black pepper

OK, are you ready? Here we go, here comes Jude’s Beer Bum Chicken Dinner;

  1. Clean the sweetcorn and cut to 6 pieces – one each
  2. Pull the storks out of the mushrooms
  3. Cut up one Chorizo sausage
  4. Cut the garlic bulbs in half
  5. Stuff the chicken cavity with 1 packet of Thyme and Rosemary, the cut Chorizo and 2 halves of Garlic
  6. Lift up the skin on the breast and rub in the butter beneath the skin – this will make it super flavourful, crispy and moist
  7. Give the bird a good sprinkle all over with sea salt and cracked black pepper
  8. Open the beer can and stick it up the chicken’s bum and stand it up – like in the picture
  9. Lay the Jamon on the chicken skin
  10. Place the sweetcorn, remaining Chorizo, mushrooms and herbs around the chicken – drizzle with Olive oil and sprinkle sea salt & cracked black pepper
  11. In the oven at 90 degrees for 3 hours and then 30 minutes at 200 to brown and crisp the skin
  12. Carve her up and lay all the roasts next to the meat – serve on a platter with the boiled rice

Holy shit how good does that look? Perfectly cooked on the slow. Moist. Th reverse sear is a knock-out. Flavour and texture – OMG!!!

How good is that? Simples too. This is in my humble opinion the best way to roast a chicken. Also, this can be done in an oven or even on the BBQ if you have a hood to keep the heat in. The beer boils and steams and sends flavoured steam into the chicken from the inside as the heat from the oven roasts it from the outside. Jude’s Beer Bum Chicken Dinner will be super moist and super tender. Again the low and slow is killer as you know it is perfectly cooked. This is a cracker and is indeed a Winner Winner Chicken Dinner. For my critics, no Wagyu so call the authorities – ENJOY!!!
