What to do with left-over roast chicken? I made chicken flautas! Before I give you the recipe for the flautas, let me first share with you my simple roast chicken recipe that’s always 100% satisfaction guaranteed! 🙂
Rub the whole chicken with 1/4 c. olive oil. Then on a small dish, mix 1/2 T. sea salt, 1/4 t. black pepper and 1/4 t. paprika. Rub the dry mixture all over the chicken, as well as inside the cavity. Stuff the chicken with 1/4 c. of sliced onion, sprigs of thyme and a whole bulb of garlic (yes, a whole bulb – don’t worry it’s an aphrodisiac!). Cut the garlic crosswise (so the garlic flavor will slowly infuse on to the chicken as it cooks). Slice a few cloves of garlic and put some in between the skin of the chicken and the meat. Roast the chicken in the oven for 30 minutes in 425 degree F . After 30 minutes, decrease the temperature to 350 degree F and cook until a thermometer inserted into the chicken breast registers 165 degree F, 30 to 45 minutes. Enjoy!
