Fajita Roast Chicken

Fajita Roast Chicken
In This Article

You can never have too many roast chicken recipes! This version is inspired by the flavors of Mexican fajitas, with a homemade rub smothered all over the bird, plus roasted peppers and onions. For even cooking, we call for a spatchcocked chicken, which means the backbone is removed and the bird is roasted flat (your butcher can do this for you). While roasting, the chicken juices drip down onto the bed of bell peppers, onion and whole garlic until everything is tender and incredibly flavorful. Serve with warm tortillas or on a bed of homemade cilantro rice.

RD Tip

Use this recipe as the centerpiece of any meal you want to make. You can eat it on its own as a low-carb meal, stuff it into bell peppers, or have a taco night. The possibilities are endless.
