I know what you’re thinking… “oh great, another easy roasted chicken recipe, how original.” What it lacks in originality, it definitely makes up for with flavor. If you want more spice, through in some cayenne or your favorite hot sauce (Sriracha, Tabasco, Frank’s Red Hot, etc) or try adding some Kalamata olives (mmm… umami!) for a little twist. As always, save those bones to make a great stock in the future, you can freeze them for later. I know this is short, but I’m exhausted, my cardiac rotation is kicking my butt. Side-note: we’re open to renaming this chicken recipe as it’s probably not exactly Tex-Mex, and we’re not exactly the most imaginative recipe-namers. Leave us a creative name in the comments!
