Roasted Jalapeno Chicken

I bought a bunch of jalapenos this weekend with the intention of making jalapeno jelly but never got around to it. So I thought I'd do something different and roast chicken with a spicy jalapeno marinade.

What you need:
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 fresh jalapenos, stems removed
  • zest of 1 lime
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/4 of a medium onion
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 pounds of on-the-bone chicken pieces or 1 whole chicken, cut into pieces

What you do:
To make marinade, throw first 8 ingredients in the blender and pulse until thoroughly combined and chopped.

Pour marinade in a large zip-lock baggie. Add chicken pieces to marinade bag, toss to coat all chicken pieces. Refrigerate, turning the chicken pieces occasionally, for at least 2 hours and up to 1 day.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Dump chicken & marinade in a large greased baking dish or cast iron skillet. Roast until chicken is just cooked through (about 1 hour).

Transfer chicken to a serving platter.

Place the cast iron skillet on a burner over medium heat.

Scrape the browned bits on the bottom and mix the pan drippings until it is reduced by about half.

Pour gravy into a bowl and skim fat off the top. Serve gravy with chicken.

 Enjoy  y'all!

  1. I love the print friendly version!!! So, with the jalapenos, you use the seeds, too?

  2. Yep, used the seeds & all. If you don't do spicy, remove the seeds. Trouble ate the chicken just fine, I did keep him away from the gravy though.
