Big Daddy's Downtown Roasted Chicken
- 5 chipotles
- 2 tablespoons adobo sauce
- 5 cloves garlic
- 2 shallots, diced
- 2 limes, juiced
- 1/2 cup cilantro leaves
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 2 tablespoons kosher salt
- 1 tablespoon cracked black pepper
- 3 (3 to 4 pound) chickens, trussed
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Put the chipotles, adobo sauce, garlic, shallots, lime juice, cilantro, olive oil, salt and pepper into a blender. Pulse the marinade until smooth and emulsified. Rub each chicken liberally with the marinade.
Arrange the chickens on a half sheet pan with a rack. Roast until cooked through, about 60 to 75 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow them to rest for about 15 minutes. Carve 1 chicken and arrange it on a serving platter. Serve. Reserve the remaining chickens for recipes that use roast chicken.
