Beer can Chicken, Tomato Duxelle and Roasted Red Potatoes

I've never cooked a beer can chicken, so I thought I would try it out. I decided to pair it with tomato duxelle and roasted red potatoes. First I shoved a can of Busch Beer into a chicken and threw it in a 350 degree oven. I added some rub to the skin.

The key to duxelle is 2 fold, first you have to chop the mushys quite fine  (add some onions and shallots),  then overcook the mushys till they are brown and dry. Take a tomato and core and seed it, then put the mushy mix in the  cavity.  Then add some parmesan cheese on top and put it in the oven to cook the tomato and melt the cheese.

I took the chicken drippings and added some cream and buttermilk, to create a sauce.  I put the roasted potatoes on the plate then poured some sauce on the plate.  I placed the chicken leaning up on the taters.

This was an awesome meal! Very tasty and it got 3 thumbs up!
