Arby’s Is Testing Out A Beer Can Chicken Sandwich

Have you ever made beer can chicken? The recipe involves cooking a chicken on a half-full can of beer in what looks like a really uncomfortable position.  Arby’s is now offering a version of this recipe in certain markets, but the beer can’s not included.   Food & Wine magazine reports that the sandwich comes in two varieties.  The Original Beer Can Chicken Sandwich features beer-marinated smoked chicken with melted cheddar cheese, crispy onions, pepper bacon, lettuce, tomato and garlic aioli on a toasted specialty roll.  The Tall Boy version of the sandwich features all that plus pit-smoked ham and crispy chicken.  Arby’s told Food & Wine that the sandwiches are being tested in Minnesota’s Twin Cities, Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Augusta, Georgia, and will be available through Dec. 23.  The chicken is marinated in Miller High Life Beer prior to cooking, and is topped with garlic aioli, cheddar cheese, pepper bacon, crispy onion rings, lettuce and tomato. The sandwich is selling for $5.49.
