Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat the oven to 400
  • Rinse and dry a 3-4 lb chicken. Kosher chicken is best.
  • Combine: ½ cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 t salt
  • 1 heaping T of crushed garlic
  • 2 t ground chipotle chili powder
  • 2 t crushed ginger
  • 1 T. cumin
  • Taste the mixture and adjust if necessary. Sometimes, it may need a touch of sugar if it tastes bitter.
  • Quarter a lime. Squeeze the juice over the chicken. Put the rinds in the bottom of the roasting pan. Add a chopped onion to the pan.
  • Work as much of the cilantro-garlic mixture under the skin of the chicken as possible. Rub the rest onto the chicken.
  • Pour ¼ cup of chunky red salsa into the cavity of the chicken. Pour ½ cup over the chicken.
  • Add 1 bottle of Mexican beer to the bottom of the pan.
  • Roast covered for about an hour.
  • Turn up the heat to 450 and roast uncovered for 15-20 minutes, basting the chicken with the pan juices a couple of times.

    If you transfer the mexican beer to a can, you could almost do this on the grill. In fact, not that I mention it...

    Nice recipe. Thanks.

    Another great post. Super flavor balance and a Bottle of beer. Too bloody right. Sorry but I don't want to wait for the Rabbi's next visit in June so no kosher chicken. RJ
