Easy Mexican Roasted Chicken

We love Mexican food - and I mean the good kind, if you think Taco Bell is Mexican and/or food you are sadly mistaken - but between the cheese, rice and beans it can be a minefield for a paleo eater.  This is a quick and easy Mexican roast chicken that you can eat with a little avocado and salsa verde, put on a salad, scramble with eggs and peppers, or throw in a chicken soup.

In my previous post I talked about the benefits of roasting whole chicken, so no need to remind you about my crush on Anthony Bourdain or how funny I think his description of trussing is.

Wash and dry your bird, salt and pepper the inside cavity.  Stuff with 1 onion, 1 lime and 1/2 bunch fresh cilantro.  Set in a baking dish and drizzle with olive oil.  Dust the chicken with some paprika, chili powder, ground coriander and chopped cilantro.  Put a little water in the baking dish and about 1/2 tbs of butter.  Bake at 375 for 2 1/2 hours, turning and basting every time you remember.
