• 1 whole chicken
  • 1 can of Dr Pepper
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • Leftover marinade from Pernil
  1. Peel and smash garlic cloves, breaking into small chunks.
  2. Carefully pull the skin loose from the chicken and gently push marinade under the skin as far as it will go. Do this around the entire chicken.
  3. Put additional marinade inside the chicken.
  4. Now, push the garlic cloves under the skin.
  5. Rub the remaining marinade all over the outside of the chicken.
  6. Set in refrigerator for at least one hour.
  7. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  8. Pour half of the can of Dr Pepper out. (The cook needs something to drink, anyway.)
  9. Place the can in the chicken can stand. (I don’t care how many times you say that; it’s always funny!)
  10. Place the stand in the middle of a roasting pan or baking sheet in the oven.
  11. Bake 90 minutes, until juices run clear when skin is pierced.
