  • Awesome – I’ve made this a handful of times now, using the can cooker but I’ve tried different spices each time, it’s hard to go wrong since the can cooker does such a good job with cooking the chicken. You can cook an 8lb fryer chicken just check it with a meat thermometer then I take all the chicken that wasn’t eaten and rip apart with my fingers, and dump egg noodles broth and whatever vegetables I want cut up in with the beer and whatever else is left from cooking in the can cooker and bam homemade chicken soup for a few days. It’s amazing.
