It may be hard to believe that such a sumptuous chicken dish is actually made with beer, but it's the Red Stripe that gives the otherwise straightforward ingredients in this recipe a touch of authentic Jamaican flavor and a tantalizing smell.

|2 tablespoons canola oil||3 bay leaves|
|2 onions, coarsely chopped||1 tablespoon dried oregano|
|4 whole garlic cloves, peeled||1 3-pound chicken with a split lemon stuffed into its cavity|
|2 green bell peppers, coarsely chopped||1 1/2 liters Red Stripe or other beer|
|3 potatoes, peeled and quartered, about 1 pound||Salt|
|6 carrots, cut caorsely on the diagonal|
In a deep pot, heat the oil. Add the onion, garlic, green peppers, potatoes, carrots, bay leaves, and oregano. Saute for 5 minutes. Add the entire chicken, turning it to brown on all sides.
Pour the beer into the pot; it should almost cover the chicken. Mix well, and cover the pot. Reduce the heat to medium low.
Intermittently stir and add more beer, if needed to keep the chicken bathed. Add salt and cook until well done, about 45 minutes. Serve in a deep platter surrounded with the vegetables, with the broth poured over the chicken.
