Are you tired of bland chicken? Spice it up with some jalapeños! This recipe is sooo fast & easy! You can use a whole chicken & split it into a few different meals because let's face it, you won't be able to get enough! 

Time: 1.5 - 2 hrs



  • 1 whole young chicken
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 2 jalapeños
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter (room temp)
  • 1 additional teaspoon butter at room temp
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary
  • Salt/pepper to taste


  1. Rub the lemon all around the chicken and squeeze the juice inside.
  2. Chop the jalapeño into slices and mix them up with the butter.
  3. Stuff the inside of the chicken with the jalapeno butter, & under the skin. Then rub the outside with the last teaspoon of butter.
  4. Salt & pepper the chicken on all sides.
  5. Tie the legs and wings with yarn, place on a wire rack over a Pyrex pan (13 x 9 works best)
  6. Put the chicken in a 350 degree oven for 1.5 hours or until golden brown and cooked through.
