  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp rosemary chopped
  • 1 Tbsp parsley chopped
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp salt divided
  • 10 oz bottle Guinness beer
  • 5 lb whole chicken
  • 2 sprigs rosemary
  • twine


  • Combine garlic, rosemary, parsley, soy sauce, pepper and 1½ tsp of salt in mixing bowl. Stir in Guinness and set aside.
  • Rub remaining salt in cavity of chicken and slide 2 rosemary sprigs under the skin above the breast. Tie chicken legs together with twine and place chicken in medium roasting pan, breast side up.
  • Pour marinade over chicken and cover with foil and refrigerate overnight, rotating if possible.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake chicken covered 1 hour, then remove foil and baste.
  • Continue baking for an addition 30 to 60 minutes or until temperature reaches 165 degrees (test temperature in meatiest part of the leg, avoiding the bone).


Keep your bird from “flying” away by making a small slit in the skin behind each leg. Slide each wing into a hole then tie the legs together to keep chicken parts in place.
