Family Meal

beer can chicken best recipes for father's day

While the chicken may look a little ridiculous perched on top of a can of partially consumed beer, this method of cooking actually results in a flavourful and tender piece of meat. The chicken dry roasts on the outside while simultaneously is bathed with beer on the inside resulting in a perfectly cooked piece of protein.

15 Minute Meal

These big and beefy burgers are infused with a touch of beer, then brushed with a beer-based barbecue sauce while cooking. Be sure to butter and toast the buns before topping with the grilled patties—it will provide a barrier and keep the bread from turning soggy.

Toddler Meal

This family-friendly meal is the perfect DIY dinner. Set out the various toppings in small bowls around the table and let everyone assemble their own taco. Toddlers probably don’t need the beer batter so consider omitting the beer batter and marinating the fish in olive oil, lime juice, salt and cilantro for at least an hour before grilling.
