  1. Fall off the bone chicken?! This recipe sounds amazing!!!

  2. "Pour half the beer in the bottom." - Is that 1/2 of my 40oz? :)
    When you broil the chicken, do you leave it in the pan with liquid or move it to a baking sheet or similar?

  3. @king bee wow 40 ounce ... ha ha... it's less than a cup half of 12 ounces. Also yes you would leave it in the pan. I like the skin crispy, if you don't leave the skin on you wont have to do that step :)
