Gameday Chicken

Georgia played Tennessee this week in Knoxville, giving me the perfect excuse to make an awesome dinner and watch the game on the couch. I spent the weekend in Winston-Salem with my sister and my boyfriend. We decided to make a beer can chicken. I have never tasted anything so delicious. It's an ingenious recipe combining a beer and chicken into one dish. The meat was moist and flavorful. For sides we made baked beans with bacon on top, caesar salad and grilled corn. The corn was my responsibility, so to give it more personality I added a chili lime butter. Here's the recipe:

3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 tsp. hot chili powder
Zest of 1 lime

Juice of 1/2 lime

Melt the butter.

Combine the chili powder and lime. As corn cooks on the grill, baste with the butter. Rotate the corn and coat each side of the corn.
