Adobo Lime Roasted Chicken Recipe

11/06/2014 *Sara-Marie* 1 Comments

My go-to roasted chicken recipe is "Sara's Chicken" but sometimes, like tonight, I only have 5 minutes to throw something in the oven. 

This recipe, which I've named Adobo Lime Chicken, is basically a simplified version of Sara's Chicken, but with a little zesty twist - fresh lime juice! In a nut shell, I just seasoned the chicken with olive oil, fresh garlic, a bunch of my homemade adobo and sazon, squeezed a fresh lime over it all, and stuffed the lime in the bird. It always surprises me when something quick and easy comes out SO GOOD. Give this a try and let me know what you think! Sorry that there's no exact measurements, but that's how I cook 90% of the time!
