How To Make Roasted Chicken with Ginger, Chile, and Lime
The intensely delicious flavors in this roasted chicken come from the ginger and chili-infused butter that is placed on the chicken before cooking.
In a small bowl, using a spoon, mash together 2 tablespoons butter, shallot, ginger, jalapeno, lime juice, coriander, salt, and pepper. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Using fingers, gently loosen skin from chicken breasts. With a small spoon, insert butter mixture evenly between skin and meat; pat skin back down.
Tie chicken legs together with cotton kitchen twine; tuck wing tips underneath. Rub chicken with remaining butter; season generously with salt and pepper. On a rimmed baking sheet, arrange onions in a single layer; place chicken on top.
Roast for 50 to 60 minutes, until chicken is well browned and an instant-read thermometer inserted in a thigh (without touching bone) reads 175 degrees F.
Transfer chicken to a cutting board and tent with oil; let rest 10 minutes (the temperature will rise by about 5 degrees).
On baking sheet, stir onions together with pan juices. Carve chicken; serve with onions and, if desired, lime wedges.
