Jalapeno-Lime Roast Chicken Recipe


1/2 stick butter, room temp
Zest and juice of 1 lime
1 small jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped
2 Tbsp finely diced red onion
Salt and pepper
1 whole chicken, 3-4 lbs

  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Remove any "extras" from the inside of the chicken and pat dry.
  3. Stir together the butter, lime zest and juice, pepper, onion, and a pinch salt and pepper.
  4. Carefully slide your hand between the skin and the chicken breast. Spread half of the butter under the skin, the other half over the outside of the chicken.
  5. Place chicken in a small roasting pan or baking dish and add 1/2 cup water to the bottom of the pan.
  6. Bake for ~1 hour, until the temperature in the thickest part of the thigh reaches 165 (if the skin browns too much, cover with foil). Let rest 10 minutes before carving.
