I’ve been told by a loving friend that this is a delicious easy recipe! I like that I can make it and forget it. Just pop it in the oven and let it do its thing.
I like to serve it with baked potatoes and steamed broccoli. I always make extra, this way I have roasted chicken, baked potatoes and broccoli for easy lunches throughout the week.
Chile Lime Chicken
2 tablespoon butter (room temp)
1/4 cup & 2 tablespoon chili powder
2 tablespoon & 1/4cup lime juice
1 whole chicken (4.5 – 5 pounds)
1.5 teaspoon salt
Set oven to 350 degrees
In a small bowl rub together butter and 2 tablespoon chili powder. Using fingers loosen skin from the chicken, rub chili butter under skin. Rub remaining chili powder, salt and 2 tablespoon lime juice over chicken.
Pour beer and 1/4 cup lime juice in the bottom of the roasting pan. Place the chicken on a roasting rack and tuck wings behind its back. Bake for 1hour 35 minutes or until thighs registers 170 degrees.
