Ingredients

  • 1 (5 pound) chicken
  • 5 medium serrano chiles, seeded and finely chopped
  • 5 medium garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 5 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated lime zest
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

Directions

Heat oven to 400 degrees F and arrange a rack in the middle. Pat chicken dry with paper towels. Remove necks and any innards from the cavities and discard.

Loosen the skin from the breast and legs of the chicken and, using your clean hands, spread 1/2 of the mixture underneath. Rub the remaining mixture all over the outside of the chicken. Set aside while oven heats up, at least 20 minutes.
